It’s really exciting when you get your ultrasounds. You get a peek at your growing baby, hear his heartbeat and watch his movements!
Your first ultrasound, usually at around six weeks, might not show you very much! You’ll hear your baby’s really fast heartbeat, and you’ll see something smaller than a one-peso coin. You can’t really tell yet, but his nose, mouth and ears are starting to take shape. His intestines and brain are beginning to develop too.
At twelve weeks, your OB might order another ultrasound. Now you can recognize your baby’s shape! His proportions might look a bit weird, because his head will be bigger than his body. His fingers will start to open and close, toes will curl, and his mouth will make sucking movements. You won’t have much of a baby bump yet, because your little one is only the size of a lemon. Even if he moves around, you can’t feel it yet. That exciting part happens at 20 to 22 weeks, so just wait! You’ve still got quite a long way to go, so relax and enjoy the journey with some Crave Healthy Chips!
