Week 12 - Nutrition and Exercise

 More information related to this Podcast


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.
