Fetal Development

Parent Category: Pregnancy
Fetal development refers to the stages of development of the fetus. In humans, there are three stages of development, divided into three trimesters. The fetus continues to develop from the day of conception until it is born after nine months.
it isn't an exact answer it depends on the vagina.
Yes. A newborn baby has a heart rate comparable to that of a fetus.A heart rate of 80 to 140 beats per minute (or slightly faster) isnot unusual for babies up to a year old. Children's heartbeats slowbetween the ages of 5 and 13, to reach the normal resting adultrange of 50 to 80 beats per minute.
Your baby may have just experienced a growth spurt or worst case scenario ... the possibility of gestational diabetes. Make sure to have your glucose screening to exempt the possibility. The same thing happened to me and it was just a growth spurt nothing to worry about.. be proactive and discuss...
A embryo has a heartbeat around week 5-6 but you can hear it more clearly around week 8.
absolutely i wouldn't of ever believed it could be true, until i experienced it myself I had only missed my first period had already gained 10 lbs had a little baby bump my boobs were lactating and had actually grown at least a cup size, everyones body is different so although that symptom isn't...
Generally, pregnancy is measured from the date of your last period. At two weeks, you're just at the point of fertilization and implantation, and there's nothing for an ultrasound to see yet. Even at four weeks - two weeks from the date of implantation - it's unlikely for an ultrasound to give you...
You start to show in your second trimester, usually around the fifth month unless you have had many children.
i went through the same thing about 2 months ago. i was bleeding very light and they had no heart beat but because i was only 5wks they said that is why they could find the heart beat. i went in a week later and found out i was mis carrying. although it might not be happening in your case it is...
Answer . Twins can be born with different health and different size but if one baby is term then they both are term. good luck joymaker rn
3 out of 5 pregnancies turn out to be miscarriages, this seems like a lot, but most of these occur very very early on, often when the woman doesn't know she is pregnant and it can't be picked up by a pregnancy test, scary thought !
it gets it through the umbelican cord The placenta providesa human fetus with food. The umbilical cord transfers food to theplacenta and provides nutrients and oxygen.
All stages, however I believe most of the damage can be done in the first 4 months until the fetus is almost completely developed.
Yes, a fetus heart rate is between 120-140 beats per min. Decrease heart rate is usually an indication of fetal distress. I would have this checked by a doctor.
You don't. They are genderless until near maturity.
I guess it it depends on what you mean by "sitting low." As the embryo floats down into the uterine lining, it will find a place to nestle in and set up shop. As long as it is in the uterine cavity all is well. At 5 weeks the baby to be is a cluster of about 500 cells; it has just in the last few...
It is called lanugo, the skin is also coated with a white greasy like substance called vernix and protects the fetus from the effects of being in the amniotic sac ( bag of water)
Reggie was a half inch shorter than Ronnie. Reggie was 5 foot 7 inches tall.
No, they are not. The umbilical cord is an actual cord that connects the baby to the placenta. The placenta is the lining of the uterus that is developed over the course of the pregnancy. The placenta is a "filter" through which the baby's food and oxygen is delivered via the umbilical cord. Once...
I am pregnant with baby #3 and I have a 4 1/2 yr old daughter and 3 yr old son. With my daughter her heartrate never dropped below 155,with my son he never rose above 150. The general old wives tale is under 150 boy, over 150 girl. Baby #3 heartbeat is 143, and I'm almost certain its a boy with my...
There is nothing abnormal about measuring 28 weeks at 29 weeks pregnant. If there were any reason to be concerned your doctor would notify you immediately.
Though he's barely the size of a kumquat - a little over an inch or so long, crown to bottom - and weighs less than a quarter of an ounce, your baby has now completed the most critical portion of his development. This is the beginning of the so-called fetal period, a time when the tissues and organs...
Your baby should gain about one pound per week during the last four weeks.
At seven weeks gestation your embryo should be clearly visible on ultrasound, if no embryo was detected you may have what is called a blighted ovum, meaning that conception took place but the embryo never developed, only the amniotic sac did. Please note that this occurrence will not affect your...

First off it would help o know how old you are. Like if you are in your 40's then I would say its a hormone problem. But of course I'm not a doctor so I will say you need to see your doctor so that you can rule out pregnancy. i am 23 years old. see i thought i was preggo the 2 dyas before my...
A human fetus develops in the uterus.
after there period, up ta 2 weeks of ovulation
as I'm sure you know medicines during pregnancy aren't good but as it was a one off I'm sure it won't do your baby any harm! paracetamol is said to be safe to take but if you can avoid it all the better. you can always ask your midwife for more advice if you're worried! x
The doctor should have told you if there was something wrong. He is either using faulty equipment (which is unlikely) or there is something seriously wrong. Ask your doctor for answers and if he/she doesn't have the answers, see a different doctor immediately. Hope everything turns out ok for you....
I had my youngest child in early 1986. The doctor had an ultrasound machine, which wasnt like they are today, and told me he believed the baby was a boy. But that was only a 75% guess. I was about 23 weeks then. He even sent his nurse from the room before he would say. No pictures or dvd's back then...
The most common symptom of a nonliving fetus, inside a woman'suterus, is a sudden spike in body temperature. The body will reactas if it has an infection.
A normal heartbeat of a fetus at 6-7 weeks would be 90-110 beatsper minute.
Teratogens get to the fetus like anything the mother consumes does, through the blood and through the umbilical cord. If a mother consumes food, she also shares that foods nutrients with her fetus as well. Same way with teratogens (alcohol, tobacco, drugs, etc), when she consumes or imbibes them.
If you don't take care of it, you won't be able to live. Since it pumps all your blood from your head to your toes.
After a Miscarriage, the fetus will be disposed of by the body just like blood during your period would. It can happen several days later though and you have to go to a doctor to get exmined in case something is left inside. That can lead to infections.
Yes. If you can't afford a doctor, try a midwife or nurse. If you're high-risk, you should be able to phone for help any time.
By 8 weeks there should be a heart beat, but just make sue you are 8 weeks along.
no it will have a hard time to survive in the outside world some have health problems it might be possible they can die after birth.
Most likely there is something wrong with the fetus and it's mother nature's way discarding the fetus before you get too far into your pregnancy.
Your baby is six inches long at 19 weeks!
There are two possible scenarios here. 1. You could still be pregnant but the monitor didn't pick up the heartbeat. 2. Miscarriage can take a while to actually happen. It can take one day or as many as 14 days to miscarry. .
Once the sperm fertilizes the ovum they begin to divide and then move to the uterus around the 4th day once they have divided to 100 cells. The zygote (the fertilized egg) then attaches to the uterus around 10 days. The embryo begins development of eyes at 4 weeks and eyelid development in the 6th...
At week 30, your baby is about 15 1/2 inches long and weighs around three pounds. The folds and wrinkles are developing in your baby's brain this week! Red-blood-cells are under complete control of your baby's bone marrow by week 30. Your baby's eyes are now open when he is awake!
Absolutely! If a baby is born at just 38 weeks, its considered full term. A baby born at 37 weeks should be just fine! From about 26 weeks can a baby survive. I have already seen a baby who was born at 25 weeks and who has survived.
You are 23 weeks pregnant. (fetal age 21 weeks) . He or she measures over 28cm and weighs up to 550 grams. . The baby is over 11 inches tall, weighs about a pound. . The eyebrows are visible. . The child can successfully suck. . Bones located in the middle ear harden. Your baby does a regular...
Some expectant mothers feel the first kicks about 16 weeks into the pregnancy, although first-time mothers will often not sense the small movements.
We suggest you speak to a pre-natal specialist or obstetrician. If you cannot afford that, visit your local health department. They will have arrangements for patients who cannot pay. We do not make medical suggestions.
You are 10 weeks pregnant. (eight weeks after conception) . From this week until birth, the developing organism is called a fetus. . The fetus is now the size of a small strawberry. . The feet are 2mm long (one tenth of an inch). . The neck is beginning to take shape. . The body muscles are almost...
the length of time they develope is the main difference.
no its not normal, your baby needs nourishment, and if your not eating the right kinds of foods, you be one anemic and have low blood count or two eat the wrong kinds of foods becoming diabetic and gathering more water in your placenta then the baby needs and therefore need to change the way you eat...
When a baby is 9 weeks in the womb, the baby is about the size of a grape or almost and inch long.
When my mom was pregnant with me, they never ever heard my heartbeat. It was just the way I was turned. They saw that I was moving and kicking, so they assumed I was still alive, but never heard a heartbeat. I came out just fine.
Yes, that's fine. There are no problems with that
well if you do not know the answer ,I(that means me)can tell you the answer.the answer is that they form cells,then the cells between your fingers die.
I'm 23 weeks right now and haven't felt the baby kick yet. My mid-wife assured me that everything was ok, just some women feel it before, or more often than others. Then I listened to the heart beat and that made me feel better that everything was ok. Answer I think maybe the reason you haven't...
It is the average length of time it takes for a fertilized egg to turn into an offspring. The fetus gestates during that time.
Harmful chemicals or viruses that can be transferred from a motherto her developing fetus are called teratogens.
That depends on how flat your stomach already is. If it is really flabby its going to take a lot more than a week to get a really flat stomach. If your tummy is already reasonably flat, then it might be possible to get it flat in a week. However, you are going to have to be doing a lot of working...
Answer . A baby that is in your uterus can usually start hearing things in the outside world around your 6th month i believe, we just started going over this in school not to long ago.
Well it all depends what stage of pregnancy you're at. If you are just in one of the early stages you would not be able to feel the baby. But if you are six or seven months pregnant the baby would start moving around and then you would be able to feel the baby. So yes you can feel the baby moving.
the answer is yes. A baby can survive if born at 24 weeks although would need special care, a baby was born at 21 weeks before now and survived :)
yes, he or she may need a little help but will be able to breath
as far as i know no. Normally it is around 5 months unless it is you second pregnency then some women can feel it sooner it is probably gas bubbles
yes it will be a little peanut looking black hole in the center of the Gary stuff you will know i have had a ultrasound at 4wks and that was a couple weeks ago but i don't think any lower than that you want know your pregnant till two weeks is up and you take a pregnancy test the two weeks allow...
That's not physically possible. . Sometime between 16 and 22 weeks, you'll start to feel your babymove. .
At 8 weeks it is still a embryo and you can see a picture in the link below.
A fetus does have amniotic fluid in the mouth, and the lungs. It enters through the nostrils. There is no air in the womb, the baby is surrounded only by amniotic fluid. The baby, once born, has to cough (or cry) out the amniotic fluid before it can breathe the air.
The mother does not house the unborn within the stomach. The child is within the Amniotic sack; that is stationed just beyond the cervix.
That isn't exactly true. Both veins AND arteries are -------- Veins
The baby weighs slightly over 5 pounds, which is a little on the small side for 38 weeks but as long as s/he is continuing to gain weight in the womb, that is fine. You may just make small babies that are 100% fine. Even the best scans at this point is estimating the size of the baby and it...
Giant tortoises are not mammals and do not give live birth like humans. Instead, female tortoises lay two to sixteen eggs, which eventually hatch after one hundred and thirty days.
It can be too early to hear it or it doesn´t have one. When having a ultrasound you should ask the doctor these things. That is the best chance to find out why yours isn´t heard.
Physically the heart is pumping and the tissue is alive but emotionally and mentally, no.
You don't Answer: You should consult your doctor or a local clinic. This is not a do-it-yourself procedure.
It´s not encouraged to take antibiotics when pregnant but sometimes you have to. The abcess can spread to the bloodstream. You need to go to the dentist and have this taken care of.
It is an ultrasound scan where the gel is rubbed onto your belly when you are pregnant to monitor the progress and growth of a foetus. they use ultrasound waves to bounce of the foetus and create the picture you see on the screen
Answer . yes it can if it kickes to hard it can bruise the inside of a womens stomach and cause damage to the stomach.
