Pregnancy is a time in a woman’s life that involves many changes, at the hormonal, body and emotional level.
During the 9 months of gestation, the pregnant woman will see her body transform as the baby grows and develops.
You can divide the pregnancy into three phases, which coincide with the 3 trimesters in which the 9 months are divided.
Check below the changes undergone by the pregnant woman and the baby during the three phases of gestation.
The first trimester is characterized by the development of the embryo, reaching at the end of the first trimester a weight of 14 to 18 g and a length between 6 and 7.5 cm.
At the end of the first three months the baby already has its body defined, starting to be called a fetus, with a well-defined head and with its eyelids forming.
As for the pregnant, this is the most uncomfortable phase, marked by symptoms such as tiredness, nausea and vomiting, drowsiness, frequent urge to urinate, and feelings of repulsion or craving for certain foods.
In the second trimester the fetus begins to develop its organs, many of them ending the formation of the main structures until the 6th month. The kidneys begin to function, forming the first urine.
At this stage it is already possible to know the sex of the baby. At the end of this trimester the pregnant woman can feel the baby’s movements inside her belly, the so-called kicks.
The baby has the first few strands of hair around the 5th month, and begins to react to stimuli and develop their senses in the 6th month.
As for the mother, many of the first trimester symptoms disappear, but constipation may occur.
This is the final stage of pregnancy, in which the baby finishes its development. At this stage the baby already opens and closes the eyes, and can at some point fit the head in the pelvic area of the pregnant, suitable position for childbirth.
The baby, already fully grown, has less room to move, and as such, it is normal to give fewer kicks.
However, whenever she moves her mother feels more. At 9 months the baby is ready to be born.
As for the mother, from the 7th month onwards she begins to organize all the preparations for the delivery, since this can occur before the end of the 9 months.
