Week 13 – Second trimester begins

Your baby is as large as an African cherry (Udara (Igbo); Agbalumo (Yoruba))  and is now about half the size of her crown-to-rump length. In this stage, babies begin growing at different paces. Also, tiny bones are beginning to form in her arms and legs. Your baby’s intestines are also in for some big changes, moving towards his/her abdomen. And to serve your growing baby’s needs, the placenta is also growing. Also developing this Week are the vocal cords. Because sound can’t travel through your uterus, you won’t be able to hear any sounds or cries just yet.
