Life's a peach! 13wks
Your fetus is forming teeth and vocal cords... Chris will be SOOO excited about this, lol! Baby is approaching normal proportions, with a head now only one third the size of the body. Intestines are in the process of moving from the umbilical cord to baby's tummy. (Much more convenient.)Fingerprints have formed on your baby's tiny fingertips, and her/his veins and organs are clearly visible through her/his still-thin skin. If you're having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. OOH LORD!
So yes we are officially in the SECOND TRIMESTER! Yes! and i have to tell you i think i'll be able to hawk it with the best of them... hawk a loogie that is! Yes pregnancy gives you LOTS of extra stuff... extra pee, extra boobs, extra tummy, extra veins, and now ladies and gentleman extra spit and boogie drainage. Now can it just form in my nose to that i can blow it on out, Heck NO! That would be easy! Instead it likes to drip down my throat and mix with my extra sticky spit and WHAM it's stuck... so every few days i've been making that really great guy noise where you're sucking the stuff off the top of your mouth, almost gagging but trying to keep it there then "clearing" your throat so it comes up and WHA LA it's a loogie! Now as lady like as this sounds (yes i'm spitting in my pearls) i DO NOT CARE! It SUCKS to have gunk, grime, etc stuck to the back of your throat! I've tried gargling and other various remedies but it DOESN'T WORK! So...
If you're driving to work and look over and see a woman look like she's about to gag to death and then you see her spit into a napkin, give her a break, she's either from the south (ahhh me fellow rednecks) or she's pregnant... either way it's excusable!
