Yes this week is my 12th week, I am so happy that I am close to the end of my first trimester now!
It says that:
1) My baby's face is beginning to look more human, even though she is only about 2 inches / 5.5 centimetres long from her crown to her rump and weighs slightly less than half an ounce/ 14 grams.
2) The eyes, which started out on the sides of the head, have moved closer together.
3) The ears are almost in their normal position on the side of the head.
4) The liver is making bile and the kidneys are secreting urine in the bladder.
The fetus squirms if your abdomen is prodded, although you cannot yet feel movement. Fetal nerve cells have been multiplying rapidly and synapses (neurological connections in your brain) are forming. The fetus has acquired more reflexes: touching the palms makes the fingers close, touching the soles of the feet makes the toes curl down and touching the eyelids makes the eye muscles clench.
The midwife can now feel the top of the uterus, also known as the fundus, low in the abdomen. As I enter the second trimester, I may find yourself donning looser, less restrictive clothing. Soon I won't be able to fit into my regular clothes any more. But have been using new clothes since I was only 8 weeks pregnant though...
Note: Experts say every baby develops differently - even in utero.
