Pregnancy by week: what awaits the expectant mother
The most exciting time for a woman is her pregnancy, because the process of development of the long-awaited baby stretched for 40 weeks. Each week of development of pregnancy brings its changes, both for the baby, and for the future mother. But what of them and at what time will happen, we will consider in our today’s article.
During this period, a woman usually does not yet know that life inside her is born. On the first week Blastocyst formation occurs. This is a cluster of cells that are a hollow vial with a liquid.
At the moment, half of your baby is one of 300 000 eggs, and the other half – for 14 days will be formed into a mature sperm. During this period, try to stop smoking, drinking alcohol, do not take medications, restrict coffee, refrain from radiographic examinations, beware of infectious diseases, less nervous, avoid stressful situations.
Approximately on the tenth day of pregnancy, the blastocyst is fixed on the inner part of the uterus more reliably and begins to grow fungi. Blastocyst cells develop more rapidly and already represent a fetus. Usually at this stage the woman stops menstruating, there are other signs of pregnancy: changes in taste preferences, nausea, weakness.
The size and weight of the baby on 25th week of pregnancy increased and is 25 cm and 700 grams. At this stage of pregnancy, the baby continues to actively strengthen the musculoskeletal system. From the 25th week in boys, the testicles begin to descend into the scrotum, and the girls begin to form a vagina. Fingers of the kid all are better able to compress fists, and already now he determines for himself which hand is most convenient for him to do something. In other words, who will be the baby - right-handed or left-handed - is formed before birth. Right now, on the fingers of the crumbs, the imprint is finally formed, and the baby can already play not only with his umbilical cord, but also with the leg.
The size and weight of the baby on 26 th week pregnancy is approximately 27 cm and 900 grams. Now the little face of the baby looks more like the face of an elderly man, the same wrinkled, but all the limbs have already gained fat mass. Now the kid can already distinguish music and hear his mother's voice, little by little to open and close eyes, the development of the skeleton continues. Active movements on the 26th week of pregnancy are replaced by calm, the baby can show activity at a certain time of the day. Another interesting fact, which doctors note at this time in the fetus is the love of sweet, and the bitter can grimace grimace.
