Baby pregnancy development week by week

This week, the nose, mouth, and ears that you'll spend so much time kissing in eight months are beginning to take shape.
Find out how big your baby is each week of pregnancy, and how babies’ length is measured in each stage of pregnancy. Fingerprints and nails are forming, and eyes and ears move into place so your baby can squint and grimace. Track your baby's development Get expert guidance from the world's #1 pregnancy and parenting resource, delivered via email, our apps and website. At this point in the pregnancy, the baby has switched gears from focusing on development to gaining weight. The baby will even respond to anything being in the palm of the hand by curving fingers around it. While there are plenty of things probably making you plenty aware that you are pregnant, and uncomfortable, the front runners for complaints include bloating making clothes tight and heartburn becomes problematic, too. The baby's heartbeat is strong enough this week to be detected by the handheld Doppler device your doctor will use at every visit from now on. You are probably beginning to fully accept that yes, you indeed are truly pregnant now, if only because your body has made it so clear to you by now. Keep track of your baby's development, and pregnancy symptoms with Baby Corner's free personalized week by week pregnancy calendar. The head is more baby-like, with ears more prominent, and eyelids are formed, with eyes now tightly shut until week 28 or so, when the eyes will open. Don't be concerned if the doctor can't isolate the sweet sound this week though, because it's not unusual for the baby to be hiding in some corner of the uterus out of Doppler range. Now is a good time to start looking for ideas for that nursery, and get an overall plan for what kinds of things you feel you need and want for baby's room. However, with hormone levels and the metabolism rising, the blood pressure and blood sugar levels are dropping and the end result is a perfect storm for the most exhausting kind of fatigue you will likely experience, at least until the end of pregnancy.


Don't worry, the sound you are waiting for will be strong and audible within the next few weeks.
Just remember that you aren't going crazy, that this is just a sign that your body is busy building baby and this is just a silly side effect. If you are eager to have a look at some external signs of pregnancy showing on your tummy, get ready to be disappointed. Given below are a week by week stages of pregnancy:•          In the first week of pregnancy there are no noticeable signs of pregnancy. In the first week you do not seem to be pregnant at all and women do not notice any considerable symptoms of conception. Though your uterus has doubled up in its size by week 7, you cannot see any signs of growing uterus or baby from outside. The doctor gives you the due date in the first week, which could be a little inaccurate, as you can deliver before or after the said due date.•          The process of conceiving has begun.
In the 2nd week there is shedding of a uterus lining, which is a natural process which occurs every month during menses.
The sonographer can do an accurate assessment of your pregnancy to predict gestational age of the embryo growing in your womb. This is the period when the egg is about to release and undergoes  a fertilization.•          After this, in the 3rd week, the fertilization process occurs.
At this stage the embryo is going through the defining characteristics of development which is unique to the specific week.At fetal stage, it is not that easy to guess the gestational age of the fetus since by then, individual genetics would have taken over the growth which may differ from one individual to other. During this week, you can determine the sex of the baby, but you cannot visualize it clearly until the 20th week, in a sonography.•          In the 4th week, now you are definite about your pregnancy. You will notice the signs and symptoms of pregnancy like nausea, vomiting, bloating, constipation, fatigue, and swollen breasts.
Apart from predicting the due date, a scan in 7th week of pregnancy can reveal certain things about your pregnancy which you should know.


You will experience morning sickness and there will be a repulsive feeling towards some food or smell.•          The 5th week is crucial week, when an embryo has developed 3 layers.
You can see the development of the brain, spinal cord, circulatory system, and bones,•          The 6th week is the week of surprises as you will actually feel the kick of the baby.
The doctor will suggest the sonography in specific months, which you will have to undergo.•          The 8th week is amazing as when you see your doctor, you will be able to hear the heartbeats of the baby.
You will hear a fast, energetic, regular heartbeat, which will definitely bring a smile on your face•          In the 9th week bone and cartilage begin to form.
The pregnancy hormones allow your breast to reach their maximum size.Unfortunately they also make your breasts tender and sensitive.
Though you may have faced the problems earlier, heartburn and indigestion becomes a regular feature during your pregnancy.Keep an eye on what and when you eat. Your baby is getting ready to pee as the kidneys are almost ready to get going with their job. The umbilical cord which will supply nutrients and oxygen to the baby until her birth is also starting to show up now.Overall, you can say this is an amazing development taking place in your baby. You should take care not to be malnourished now, because your health is important not just for your safety but also for the safety of your baby. Most of the men go through the fear of being a responsible parent, but once the baby arrives, you will learn the skills.
