The magic of pregnancy, week after week. And what week do you have?
Human pregnancy (lat. Graviditas) is a special condition of a woman’s body in which a developing embryo or fetus is in her reproductive organs. Pregnancy occurs as a result of the fusion of female and male germ cells in the fallopian tube, after which the formation of a zygote containing 46 chromosomes. The sex of the unborn child depends on the set of sex chromosomes (XX or XY), while the eggs are always carriers of the X chromosome, and the sperm cells of the X or Y chromosome (in a 1: 1 ratio). Thus, the sex of the unborn child is determined precisely by the sex chromosome, the carrier of which is the sperm (in the case of the X chromosome, a female child will be born, and in the case of the Y chromosome, male). As a result of cell division, a blastocyst forms, which on the seventh day attaches to the uterine wall. In the first three months of pregnancy (first trimester), the fetal organs are laid, by the end of the 12th week the placenta is fully formed. Through it, the fetus receives nutrients and the final metabolic products are removed. The duration of a person’s pregnancy is 9 months, or 40 obstetric weeks (counted from the date of the last menstruation). In obstetrics, physiological and pathological pregnancies are distinguished. Normally, any pregnancy ends with a birth certificate - a baby is born, and in the case of multiple pregnancy - twins (homozygous - identical or heterozygous - different).
Wait for it or not, the moment has arrived: you "ve conceived. Although you may not know it. The Miracle of life has begun. And we say miracle because the transformation from a cell until a baby is really a miracle of nature, very studied but I still can "t reproduce. It "s really complex and fantastic at the same time.
This week the fertilized egg (called a zygote) shall be divided into a number of occasions to become embryo. When it starts to divide will be called blastocyst (don "t worry about the names since we will refer from now on to him or her as your baby). And the time she starts to divide descends from the trunk of the uterus, fallopia where adheres to his wall and it will be a season of more or less than nine months.
This week the baby is the size of a poppy seed. The Ball of cells that is developing (embryo) has finished his trip from the fallopian tube and has stayed in the womb. Once comfortable installed in his hotel room, the cells of the baby will be subject to a large number of continuing divisions. But eye, only half of the cells will develop forming the baby; the other half will be the placenta.

When you tell the rest of the world that you "re pregnant? So basically when you and your partner decide. No matter what anyone tells you: say it you. Many couples prefer to wait a while to say it just in case the pregnancy goes wrong, but many say it right away. You can also communicate only to your closest family environment, although it "s more than possible that future grandparents" talk more about the account "and don" t know how to save this "little" Secret (we would say that it is impossible for a grandfather or grandmother to maintain this kind of Secrets, although we haven "t found any study on this).

This week your baby is the size of your fist. Another novelty is the formation of your palate as well as the start of his intestinal activity: is already producing the meconium.
The meconium is the waste that will be his first bowel movement after birth. Actually expel him soon after childbirth or in the delivery itself.
Also is forming the lanugo (body hair) that keeps him warm and happy. Don "t worry about giving birth to a monkey, because in the next few weeks a layer of fat under the skin will assume this role and some will disappear. And if so, when is he" sa bit of one nor worry: will fall bit by bit.
One way of dealing with the devastation that we produce the hormones of pregnancy is focusing on everything that "s going on with the baby with its constant and surprising development.

Passing trains the taste buds and practice all the necessary synchronization for in a future eat outside the womb.
By the way, some studies suggest that the baby can develop the sense of taste depending on what you eat during pregnancy. Maybe you could save any future tantrum with starting to acclimate to a big healthy and balanced diet with vegetables, fish, vegetables, etc ... plus you "ll be good for you too.
