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.

His spokesperson Christina Pushaw is on record saying “Governor DeSantis is pro-life and has voiced support for the concepts in this bill."  Starting July 1, doctors in the state will be prohibited from performing abortions after the 15 week mark if the governor decides to endorse this decision.   While the bill aims to protect preborn children, there are still some exceptions. These include "irreversible physical impairment" or death to the mother as well as fatal abnormality.  The abortion bill is often perceived as reasonable although  rape, incest and trafficking are not current exceptions. Lawmakers believe that 15 weeks is enough time to make a decision before the baby reaches later stag

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
