Three Months Pregnant: Symptoms and Fetal Growth Guide

Three Months Pregnant: Symptoms and Fetal Growth Guide: Congratulations! You’ve completed the tentative first trimester. You are now feeling more confident about your pregnancy. This is the time where you will probably start telling the people about your good news (Yippee!)

At the same time, you have got a lot ahead in this journey (boo!). Pregnancy is a big journey – and today at 3 months of pregnancy, you have completed just one-third part of it. Still, a long way to go!!

But don’t worry, you will rock this journey as Pink Bundle is here to help you. 

Let’s move towards your 3 months pregnancy symptoms and the development status of the fetus. 

At this stage, certain symptoms are pleasant and welcoming, but others are quite no.

Increase in energy.

Increase in vaginal discharge.

Mood Swings

Increase in food cravings and aversions.

Dizziness

Frequent urination

Changes in skin pigmentation.

If you are not suffering from morning sickness, then stop thinking that something’s wrong with the baby inside. Not all women have to face the issue of morning sickness. If you are the one, then consider yourself lucky (Really!). 

My Baby bump at 3 months

If it’s your first pregnancy, you might not be showing at 3 months. On the other hand, if you are showing, that’s cool. Every women’s body is different. With the following pregnancies, you are more likely to pop out sooner than rather later. But this also depends upon the physical characteristics of the woman like height, weight, & core strength.

Bottom line? Bump size differs individually, so try not to compare your belly to other pregnant mamas, even if you’re at the same point in gestation.

Fetal Development 

Ok, now that we are aware of your body… what about the baby? At 3 months, your baby is working hard at developing. It is now between 2 and 3 inches long and weighs about as much as a lemon.

You may not feel the baby’s movements yet, but that doesn’t mean nothings happening inside. Your baby’s:

Digestive, muscle, and skeletal systems are developing.

Tiny fingers and toes have started to form.

Kidneys are now functioning.

Reflexes are developing.

Bone marrow is producing WBCs.

Genitals are developing. 

The baby might be sucking its thumb or even hiccuping!

Checklist for you

Share your big news with the people around you. 

Plan your maternity leave if you are a working woman. 

Bond with your baby bump. Your baby can hear muffled voices so sing or talk to the bump.

Communicate freely with your husband. Share the workloads with the dad-to-be so that all the burden doesn’t fall on you, mum-to-be.

You will soon be entering the second trimester which begins with the fourth month of pregnancy. Take care of yourself & your baby!
