Which reminds us: since you're rolling into the "safe" second trimester (greatly reduced risk of miscarriage) this is probably the right time to share your pregnancy news (if you haven’t already) with close family and friends. Allowing those you trust and love an active role in your pregnancy encourages participation and support for the future—when you’re really going to need it!
While it may seem as if you've doubled in size over the past few weeks, it's your baby who actually has!
Your doc can feel your growing uterus by touching your abdomen, but you may not look pregnant.

This annoying pregnancy symptom will likely go away as you head into your second trimester.
It's hard to believe (especially from the outside, since you're probably barely showing at this point), but your baby has more than doubled in size during the past three weeks. At 12 weeks pregnant, the herculean task of developing new bodily structures is nearing an end, as most of your baby's systems are fully formed – though there's still plenty of maturing to do. If you're lucky, this will bring an end to one pesky early pregnancy symptom: the constant urge to urinate. Yup — it's your old friend progesterone again, which causes your blood vessels to relax and widen around 12 weeks pregnant, increasing the flow of blood to your baby (again, good for baby), but slowing the return of blood to you (as always, not so good for mom).
But be sure to practice your Kegel exercises throughout the next several months to help prevent pregnancy-induced incontinence down the line. Now comes the maintenance phase, during which your fetus' systems continue to mature for the next 28 weeks and the organs get to work.
Also slated to diminish somewhat now that you're on the cusp of your second trimester are some of those other early pregnancy symptoms: nausea, super-tender breasts and nipples, food aversions and fatigue.

Pregnancy symptoms can also stand between you and a good time — after all, it's hard to purr when you're busy gagging on dinner or to get busy when you barely have the energy to get undressed or for your partner to take advantage of those extra-large breasts when you have a strict look-but-don't-touch (ouch!) policy in effect. Another cause of dizziness during pregnancy is low blood-sugar levels, which can occur if you're not eating regularly. Many women get heartburn for the first time during pregnancy, and those who've previously had bouts of heartburn may find that it gets worse.During pregnancy, the placenta produces a lot of the hormone progesterone, which relaxes the valve that separates the esophagus from the stomach.
For many women, heartburn doesn't begin (or get worse) until later in pregnancy, when your growing uterus starts to push up on your stomach. The amount of discomfort varies from woman to woman, and even from pregnancy to pregnancy.This week's activityMake a baby budget.
