12 weeks pregnant, Your baby’s essential body systems and vital organs are now fully formed, so this is a big week for him or her! At your next prenatal exam, you’ll be able to hear your baby’s heartbeat if you haven’t already. Meanwhile, your baby bump may be a little more noticeable at 12 weeks pregnant.

12 weeks pregnant

If you’re 12 weeks pregnant, you’re in the 3rd month of your pregnancy.

There are only 6 months left! Do you have any other questions? 

Here’s more on how the weeks, months, and trimesters of pregnancy are split.

At 12 weeks, how large is my baby?

Your kid is approximately the size of a lime at this point, weighing a full half-ounce and about 2 to 214 inches from crown to rump.

It’s hard to imagine — especially because you’re probably hardly visible at this stage,

But your kid has grown by more than a third in size in the last three weeks.

The digestive system of the baby begins to function.

This week is a watershed moment for your baby. 

Around 12 weeks pregnant, the majority of your baby’s systems are fully developed.

So the Herculean effort of generating new biological structures is nearing a conclusion – though there’s still plenty more maturing to do.

The maintenance period begins now, during which your fetus’ systems continue to develop for the next 28 weeks and the organs begin to function.

Heartbeat of the fetus

If you haven’t already, you’ll most certainly hear your baby’s fetal heartbeat at this month’s appointment,

A sound that will make your heart racing with delight!

Your belly at 12 weeks pregnant

At 12 weeks, your baby bump may be more noticeable and possibly visible to others. 

However, while your clothes may be getting a little tighter, you are unlikely to have a visibly pregnant belly at this point. 

You may appear to have gained a little weight around the middle, or you may not appear to be different from anyone else at all.

Whatever the issue may be, know that your 12-week-old belly is perfectly normal, whether it’s large, little, or barely visible. 

The size and shape of the baby bump vary greatly based on the woman’s size and shape, as well as if this is her first or second pregnancy.

Symptoms of vertigo

Once you reach your second trimester, you may experience a new pregnancy symptom: dizziness. 

And who do you think is to blame? It’s your old pal progesterone, which relaxes and widens your blood vessels about 12 weeks pregnant, 

Increasing the flow of blood to your baby (again, wonderful for baby), but decreasing the return of blood to you (as always, not so good for mom).

Lower blood pressure and decreased blood flow throughout your body, including to your brain, are the results. 

These elements might cause light-headedness and dizziness, especially if you stand up too quickly, which is why going slow and steady is the way to go.

Finally, If you feel dizzy or faint during 12 weeks pregnant, lie down or sit with your head between your knees, take deep breaths, and relax any tight clothing you’re wearing, such as that button on your jeans you couldn’t get to close in the first place. Get something to eat and drink as soon as you feel a little better.
