You at 3 months pregnant
You also might have avoided putting on many pounds up till now, especially if you've gone off certain foods or if you've experienced intense morning sickness or other appetite suppressing symptoms earlier on in your pregnancy.
You may still be feeling tired and a bit moody, but have faith that these irritating symptoms will ease very soon.
Your skin, hair and nails might be feeling the effects of pregnancy as well. It's common for your hair and nails to grow faster than usual and for your skin to produce more oil, which can cause a bit of acne.
Your baby at 3 months pregnant
By the end of this month, your little one will measure approximately 3 inches and during your 12 week ultrasound, you might even be able to see baby move around.
Lots of body parts are forming this month, including:
- Longer arms and legs that can bend at the elbows and knees
- Reproductive organs
- Tooth buds
- Hands, fingers, and fingernails
- Feet, toes, and toenails
- External ears
Things to think about
It's also time to invest in a good maternity bra if you haven’t already. Your breasts will blossom very soon and you’ll want all the extra support you can get. Check for deals on maternity and nursing bras for when you're breastfeeding too.
Your dentist is another important healthcare professional to visit early on in your pregnancy. It's important for you and your baby's health to brush and floss your teeth morning and night.
You may also notice some pregnancy stretch marks making an appearance. It's very common for them to appear on your breasts, belly, hips, or thighs at some stage while pregnant. Try not to panic, though. They might not be the prettiest to look at, but they won’t affect your health and they should fade after pregnancy.
