Baby's Development - 12 Weeks Pregnant


Most of your baby's systems are now fully formed!  

They will still need time to grow and mature, but it's an exciting step in a great direction.

Can you imagine your baby flexing his bicep?

Okay... maybe he's not a weightlifter just yet, but your baby has developed the ability to use his reflexes. This week he will learn how to wiggle his fingers, curl his toes, blink his eyes, and best yet, pout his lips. (I don't know about you, but I can't wait for a slobbery baby kiss!)

Your baby is now officially on the move! 

You might not be able to feel it yet, but he is starting to move around. If you press on your abdomen, your little one will shift in response.


Do you want to make your heart skip a beat (theoretically, of course!)? 

Well, I've got wonderful news for you! This week you'll likely be able to hear your baby's fetal heartbeat on an external Doppler device. I promise... it's one of the most beautiful sounds in the world.

Who's Deadlier? Planned Parenthood or COVID-19

  It's Closer than You Think Contrary to what you might expect, the results are actually much closer than what you would like to believe.  According to the CDC , in 2020 there were 376,098 COVID-19 related deaths in the United States. Planned Parenthood disclosed 345,672 abortion services on to their  latest annual report . That doesn't even include the additional 593,586 emergency contraception kits.  Govenment Funded Deaths Planned Parenthood revealed that government funding was their number one source of revenue on their   2018-2019 annual report . In fact, they received 616.8 million dollars from government health services reimbursements and grants.  Exploiting Women Planned Parenthood takes advantage of women. One would think that an organization with such a name would help women plan their parenthood, but this could not be further from the truth.  Numbers simply don't lie. During the course of an entire year, the organization  reported  only 9,798 prenatal services an

Massachusetts Passed New Radical Abortion Bill

  Despite Governor Charlie Baker's veto, Massachusetts' legistature voted on a bill last Tuesday that will expand abortion access in the Bay State a number of ways.  One of the most important changes is allowing abortions after the 24 week mark. Most people would agree that by this point of development the fetus is no longer a clump of cells. It's now a baby. By the 24 week mark alone, unborn babies are approximately 11½ inches long and about one pound. What's also interesting to note is that the songs babies hear at this point of development, they often remember once they're born. They are even calmed by the melody. Honestly abortions at this stage (nevermind later) is absolutely appalling.  In addition, lawmakers eliminated the 24 hour waiting period. You may be asking why. Well, you're not alone. Saying you should sleep on it before you murder an innocent human life shouldn't be looked down upon. It should be encouraged. The last major change is that mino
