Week 12 - Nutrition and Exercise
Hello. This is Dr. Mauldin. It has now been 12 weeks since conception. Congratulations!
Would you believe that your baby is now 2 inches long and weighs half of an ounce? All of the baby’s organs have formed, but their development will continue for the rest of the pregnancy. You can breathe a sigh of relief because the most critical development of the baby has now taken place and your chance of miscarriage has dropped significantly.
OH – and one other tidbit: The genitals of the baby have not yet developed enough to show whether it’s a boy or a girl. That will become more evident within the next month.
I hope you are doing well and I’ll talk to you next week.
