Magic of pregnancy, week after week. And what week do you have?
Pregnancy of a person (Latin graviditas) is a special condition of a woman's organism, in which her developing reproductive organs contain a developing embryo or fetus. Pregnancy occurs as a result of the fusion of female and male germ cells in the fallopian tube, followed by the formation of a zygote containing 46 chromosomes. The sex of the future child depends on a set of sex chromosomes (XX or XY), while the ovules are always carriers of the X chromosome, and the sperm of the X or Y chromosome (in the ratio 1: 1). Thus, the sex of the future child is determined precisely by the sex chromosome, the carrier of which is the spermatozoon (in the case of the X chromosome, a female child is born, and in the case of the Y-chromosome, the male). As a result of cell division, a blastocyst is formed, which on the seventh day is attached 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 completely formed. Through it the fruit receives nutrients and there is a removal of the final products of metabolism. 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 generic act - a child is born, and in the case of multiple pregnancy - twins (homozygous - identical or heterozygous - different).
