Beginning of Pregnancy Step by Step

Index

“Once upon a time, a shivering egg that waited impatiently in the tube, the sperm arrived to finally start a new life… They met and nine months later, a beautiful baby was born.”

Hey!! But is that how it really happens. Is it enough for the sperm to find the egg and period, 9 months later the magic of life happens? It would be easier to believe in the stork my people! Curiosity of 9 out of 10 pregnant women, what will the pregnancy be like step by step right from the start? How does the baby begin to develop as soon as the egg meets the sperm?

It all starts with ovulatory stimulation, several hormones are part of a process where the ovary begins the maturation process of the eggs and stimulates them to become mature enough to be released by the follicle and then captured by the tube for the sperm to fertilize it. . After ovulation, the follicle becomes a corpus luteum which is a major part of the initial pregnancy process. If the woman who has just ovulated has sex before or up to 24 hours after ovulation , it is possible that she will fertilize and then the egg will become a baby. The semen ejaculated by the man begins to move towards the tube, where only a sperm will fertilize the egg at last.

The Baby Exists!

After this event, the fusion of the DNA nuclei begins and then the multiplication of the cells begins to happen. Initially, a cell divides into two that divide into two more, and so on. The multiplication of cells starts here and is constant , even in adults. However, pregnancy step by step, it really happens when after fertilization, the zygote (pile of cells) fixes itself in the endometrium. This act of fixing, is called nidar, or the famous nidação . This nesting can cause bleeding, which is also one of the symptoms of pregnancy, however visible nesting bleeding is the exception and not the rule. It is much more common for a woman to have a nest without realizing it!

From then on, the beginning of pregnancy is officially considered. Thereafter, the amount of cells will grow considerably and the zygote will divide into 2 parts , one will become the primitive placenta, the amniotic sac and future umbilical cord, the other will actually form the baby . In the case of identical twins, this is where the second baby appears! The cells divide evenly once more and another baby will be formed.

The cells will gradually form the vital organs, until the 4th week of gestation the spine and the neural tube are in formation. It is very important at this stage that the woman is taking folic acid, because it helps in the formation of the neural tube that in the future will be the baby’s brain. So it is desirable to start taking folic acid 3 months before attempts to get pregnant, it will help the fetus a lot in the initial weeks.

In the first weeks of life, what supports the fetus is the vitelline vesicle. She sometimes makes the placenta nourishing blood and oxygen the being that will become the perfect baby in a few weeks. At first, the baby grows very quickly, it is possible to check the change from one week to another in an ultrasound. At this stage it is possible for the woman to miss her period. By the 5th week of pregnancy, it is possible to find enough HCG in the woman’s body and finally the test is positive. The baby’s organs begin to form. The liver, lung, kidneys, beginning of arms and legs (shoots) and also the trunk in addition to closing the neural tube giving birth to the baby’s head.

In fact, the woman’s body begins to undergo some noticeable changes, such as sore breasts, cramps, nausea, fatigue, drowsiness, increased or lack of appetite, increased body temperature and other changes such as mood for example.

In the sixth week the baby can already have a heartbeat! An involuntary contraction of one of the muscles of the small heart triggers a series of beats and now, rhythms form the beats and pulsations to bring blood to the small body. The heartbeat is very fast! The heartbeat is so fast that it can reach 180 beats per minute ! The smaller the baby, the faster its heart has to beat to bring blood and oxygen to the body.

The maternal uterus will already be bigger, it is globose and the endometrial layer is quite thick to hold the gestational sac fixed. It is possible to feel the swelling by the pressure that the uterus will put on the bladder. Therefore, the vast majority of pregnant women are very willing to urinate at the beginning of pregnancy. That, without commenting that the hormones are in full swing, progesterone is working hard to help the pregnancy stay and, it can even cause a roller coaster of emotions. Don’t even be surprised if you get disgusted by your husband, it really can happen.
