Pregnancy has three trimesters, each of which is marked by specific fetal developments. A pregnancy is considered full-term at 40 weeks; infants delivered before the end of week 37 are considered premature. Premature infants may have problems with their growth and development, as well as difficulties in breathing and digesting.
- This week is the beginning of the embryonic period.
- All of your baby’s organs will begin to develop, and some will even begin to function.
- Present now the amniotic sac, which will house your baby; the amniotic fluid, which will cushion him/her as s/he grows; and the yolk sac, which produces your baby’s red blood cells and helps deliver nutrients.
- Now you should be taking your vitamins also do not take any medications without your doctor’s consultation.
- Your baby now is about the size of a grape. s/he’s starting to look more and more human.
- Your baby’s heart finishes dividing into four chambers, and the valves start to form – as do her tiny teeth.
- The organs, muscles, and nerves are kicking into gear.
- The placenta is developed enough now to take over most of the critical job of producing hormones.
- Morning sickness and other physical symptoms in full force for most women.
- Fingerprints are forming on your baby’s tiny fingertips, veins and organs are clearly visible through her/his thin skin.
- If you’re having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. Your baby is almost 7.62 cm long and weighs nearly 28 grams.
- Your risk of miscarriage is now much lower than earlier in pregnancy.
- You may be eating for two, but you don’t need twice as much food.
- Your baby is about 13 cm long, and he weighs almost 198 grams (about the size of a bell pepper).
- S/he’s busy flexing her/his arms and legs – movements that you’ll start noticing more and more in the weeks ahead.
- You are experiencing an increase in appetite and specific food. Choose meals and snacks that are rich in nutrients instead of empty calories.
- Don’t spring up too fast from a lying or sitting position or you might feel a little dizzy. Try placing a pillow behind you or under your hip or upper leg for comfort.
- 28 cm long and 453 gm weigh, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn.
- Now your belly is showing, people might start touching it. It’s perfectly okay to tell folks who touch your tummy that you’d rather they didn’t.
- And if people are telling you that you look smaller or bigger than you should at this point, remember that each woman grows – and shows – at her own rate.
- You may start to notice stretch marks on your abdomen as it expands to accommodate your growing baby.
- This week, your baby weighs almost 900 gm and is about 37 cm long with her/his legs extended.
- With more brain tissue developing, your baby’s brain is very active now. While her/his lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning.
- Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on.
- You may find that your leg muscles cramp now and then.
- Your baby measures over 40 cm long and weighs about 1.5 kg (about the size of a coconut).
- S/He can turn his head from side to side, and his/her arms, legs.
- S/He’s probably moving a lot, so you may have trouble sleeping because your baby’s kicks and somersaults keep you up. All this moving is a sign that your baby is active and healthy.
- Frequent contractions, on the other hand – even those that don’t hurt – may be a sign of preterm labor. Call your doctor immediately if you have more than four contractions in an hour or any other signs of preterm labor.
- Your baby now weighs almost 2 Kg 700 gm, and is more than 47 cm long.
- At the end of this week, your baby will be considered “early term.” (Full term is 39 to 40 weeks. Babies born before 37 weeks are preterm, 41 weeks is late term, and those born after 42 are post-term.)
- Most likely your baby is already head-down. But if not, your doctor may suggest scheduling an external cephalic version.
- Now that your baby is taking up so much room, you may have trouble eating a normal-size meal. Smaller, more frequent meals are often easier to handle at this point.
- The average newborn weighs about 3.7 kg (about the size of a small pumpkin) and is about 50 cm long.
- Some women have prolonged pregnancies for no apparent reason. You still have a couple of weeks before you’ll be considered “post-term.
- Fetal heart rate monitoring (called a nonstress test or NST) will generally be done as well – by itself or as part of the BPP.
- If there’s a serious, urgent problem, you may have an immediate c-section.
- If you don’t go into labor on your own, you’ll be induced, usually sometime between 41 and 42 weeks.
