pregnancy by week

Week 13


Your baby is about as long as a pea pod, and already has fingerprints. (Imagine how tiny those fingertips are!) The body is growing bigger in proportion to the head.


The first trimester (reputedly the toughest) is ending… phew! Pat yourself on the back, and be sure to acknowledge your partner for being a trooper through it all. Celebrate with a special mocktail.


Hey, you should celebrate too (but, in solidarity with mom, try to keep it alcohol-free). Be proud of yourself, and make a fuss over how well mom is doing.


If your sex life has been a bit, um, uneventful for the past couple of months, take heart: mom’s libido may be making a comeback soon. Treat yourselves to a romantic date night to get in the mood.
