Pregnancy and motherhood are the sacred responsibilities of women. From a fetus after 40 weeks of “cherishing,” giving the mother a tine angle is an inspiring journey.
According to the World Health Organization, vaccinating pregnant women is a crucial step to prevent some bacteria viruses that cause disease for both mother and baby during nine months and ten days of pregnancy.
Week 2: conception
This week, you have just ovulated. Eggs are fertilized within 12-24 hours after sperm encounter the egg. If all goes well, this simple biological event begins a series of increasingly sophisticated processes that create a new person. Over the next several days, the fertilized egg continues to divide into many cells as it travels down the fallopian tube, enters the uterus and begins to come to the uterine lining.
Week 3: nesting
Now, a tiny balloon of hundreds of cells that multiply at an incredibly fast rate is nesting in the nutrient-rich lining of the uterus. This balloon, called the blastocyst, has begun producing the pregnancy hormone HGG. And according to this signal, the ovaries will stop releasing eggs.
Week 4: it’s a fetus
Our balloon is now officially called an embryo. It has been about four weeks since the first day of the last period. Usually, this is when the next period should occur. At this point, home pregnancy tests will give a positive result. At this time, our little friend is just as significant as a poppy seed.
Although your baby looks more like a tadpole than a human, he is growing very fast. The circulatory system is starting to form, and the little heart will begin beating this week. Babies are only as big as sesame seed at this gestational week.
Your baby’s nose, mouth, and ears begin to shape. And the intestines and brains also begin to develop. Baby has grown to 1 lentil already.
The baby has doubled since last week, his tail is still there, but it will disappear soon. The tiny hands and feet look like paddles growing from the developing forearms. She is as big as a blueberry now.
Your baby started moving around, but mom still couldn’t feel it. The nerve cells begin to branch, forming the primary nervous system. The respiratory tract begins to extend from the throat to the developing lung. Her current size is the size of a pea.
Your basic morphology has already formed, even small and beautiful little earlobes, but the road is still very long. The tail of the fetus has disappeared. She only weighs an ounce, but you are about to gain weight fast. Mom, your baby is as big as a grape!
Our little friends have completed the most critical part of the development process. Your skin is still translucent, but tiny hands and feet can be bent. And the small details like nails have begun to form. Your baby is as big as blueberry.
Our angels have almost full. Although she still hasn’t felt it, she can kick her legs, stretch, even hiccup because the diaphragm is growing. At this point, your baby is about the size of a fig.
This week your reflexes start small: your fingers will soon begin to fold, your toes will curve, and your mouth will perform sucking movements. She will feel it when her mother gently touches her stomach – even though she still hasn’t tickled your move. Your baby is now as big as a lemon.
