Baby at 12 Weeks Pregnant
Well that escalated quickly!
Your baby’s liver is now producing blood cells and her kidneys are starting to produce urine. She’s starting to move, bend, and wiggle in utero, more commonly known in the science world as “babyrobics”.

This can lead to some acne and skin irritation. Her weight gain is increasing and she’s probably starting to show.
Send her your positive vibes. Lay one of your old pick up lines on her and add a wink.
If she humors you, encourage her to go out and shop for some maternity clothes (if she hasn’t already). Great options that won’t break the bank are Gap and Target. Both stores typically have a better selection online than in-store.
Pregnancy Tips for Dad at 12 Weeks
Your best bet is to support your partner by attending as many of the appointments as possible. This will give you a chance to ask all your questions. Believe me, they’ve heard them all.
Don’t be shy. Ask what you want to know. You may want to start carrying around a notepad for when mom shares all of her questions and fears.
This week (12) is when many people officially start sharing their baby news. Tell your parents first, then family and friends, and maybe hold off on Facebook for last. The Facebook universe already knows what you had for lunch.
