Week 13 starts on day 91 and goes up to day 98.
It is your 14e pregnancy week.

Length of your baby: 7.5 centimeter / 3 inches
Weight of your baby: 30 gram / 1.1 ozs


You are now in the second quarter of your pregnancy and if you are suffering from any of the pregnancy related symptoms these should begin to decrease now and you should start to feel better and have more energy.

This is the week when most women choose to tell the rest of the world about their pregnancy because the chances of miscarriage are now greatly reduced although many women choose to tell immediately after they have the results of their pregnancy test.

It is wise to tell your employer that you are pregnant early on in order that they can seek a replacement or a temporary worker to fill your position once you have gone on maternity leave. It may also be the case that some of your work related activities have to be changed if for example you are involved in any heavy lifting duties which are not advised during pregnancy. Legally you are only obliged to inform your employer 3 months before your expected delivery date although it is generally impossible to keep your secret that long because of the increased size of your tummy.

Your uterus is now almost as big as a fist and the top of your uterus (fundus) is now at the same height as your pubic bone (symphysis). The midwife will regularly measure the distance from the fundus to the symphysis (fundal height) and record this on your visit card in centimeters.

The baby now has good space to move around as the amount of amniotic fluid in the womb is increasing. Occasionally he may take a sip of this and this will train his swallowing reflexes. The placenta ensures that this fluid is constantly refreshed and repleted because your baby will already pee in it. This is a good sign that his kidneys are now functioning properly.

Although all your baby's teeth are shaped and formed they are still hiding in the gums and will only come through a few months after birth.

The baby and the placenta now weight approximately 30 grams.

Hello. Sister At the 13 weeks of pregnancy, what can you say, what kind of symptoms do you expect?

I`m 13 weeks pregnant with my fourth child and the only symptoms I`ve had are extreme fatigue and sore breasts. I have known i was pregnant since about 4-5 weeks but i still don`t feel pregnant. I lost my father 4 months ago and the emotional impact this has had on me is making me feel no connection to my pregnancy at all. The thought that he will never hold this grandchild and I`ll never have photos of him holding it consume my thoughts

There is a blood test you can get to tell the gender. But you can`t otherwise know till 20 ultrasound.
