Our child is 13 weeks old
The fetus is now nearly 3 inches / 7 to 8 centimetres long from crown to rump and weighs nearly an ounce / 23 grams — about half a banana. Its unique fingerprints are already in place. And when you poke your stomach gently and she feels it, our baby will start rooting — that is, act as if she’s searching for a nipple.
If we’re having a girl, she now has approximately 2 million eggs in her ovaries; she will have only a million by the time she’s born. She’ll have fewer eggs as she gets older, and by age 17, the number will have dropped to 200,000
So girls loose half their eggs before they’re born? Where do they go?
