Life is a Miracle! Baby Growing In Mommy's Womb

You might been thinking that how mother gives birth to the baby and then the question arises that how the baby grows in the womb therefore, we are here with the month wise details that how a baby grow up in the womb from the first month to the 9th month. As the process of the baby growth is very slow and steady but knowing the fact is interesting. So, let’s start with the months as well:

First month:

After the egg has been fertilized by the sperm, it starts to divide into more cells. This happens all the time it is carried along the fallopian tube to the uterus. By the time it reaches the uterus the fertilized egg has become a cluster of cells which float in the uterine cavity until it embeds in the wall of the uterus. This implantation in the wall of the uterus is when conception is complete. This is roughly 4 weeks after day one of the last menstrual period if you have a 28-day cycle.

Second month:

At 5 weeks the embryo is the size of a grain of rice (about 2 mm long) and would be visible to the naked eye. It has the beginnings of a brain with 2 lobes and its spinal cord is starting to form. At 8 weeks, the eyes and ears are growing, and your baby is about 2 cm long from crown to rump. The head is out of proportion with the body and the face is developing. The brain and the blood vessels in the head can be seen through the thin skin. The bones in the arms and legs start to harden and elbows and knees become apparent. Fingers and toes can also be seen.

Third month:

At week 9 the head is almost half the crown to rump length of the fetus. Then the body grows substantially in length until by week 12, the head is more in proportion. By the time you are 12 weeks’ ‘pregnant’, your baby is just over 5 cm long from crown to rump.

Fourth Month:

Your baby may suck its thumb now. By 14 weeks your baby will be about 9-10 cm long. Its body is now covered with a layer of fine hair called lanugo. By 16 weeks its face is becoming more human in appearance, although the chin is small and the mouth is quite wide. Between 16 and 24 weeks you should feel your baby move for the first time — it may at first feel like butterflies.

Fifth Month:

The rapid growth that your baby has been experiencing now begins to slow a little. By week 20 your baby measures about 18 centimeters from crown to rump and is half as long as it will be when born. The legs are now in proportion with the body and the fingernails are well developed. At this stage, you will feel your baby moving about a lot, often when you lie down.

Sixth month:

By 24 weeks your baby’s organs are fully formed. The baby now has the face of a newborn baby, although the eyes are rather prominent because fat pads are yet to build up in the baby’s cheeks. The eyelids are fused until weeks 25 to 26 when they open.

Seventh Month:

By 28 weeks lanugo hair has almost gone and hair is present on the head. Fat is being deposited under the skin.

Eighth Month:

By the 30th week the toenails are present and by 32 weeks the fingernails have reached the end of the fingers. The baby’s eyes will open when the baby will awake. By about 32 weeks the baby will have settled into a downward position as there is no longer enough room left in the womb for it to move about freely. You will feel occasional vigorous jabs of the baby’s arms and legs.

Ninth Month:

Sometime between 36 and 40 weeks, the baby’s head will engage — that is, the head will be lying just on top of your cervix. By 40 weeks, your baby should be plump and healthy. There can be variation in the measurement but after 38 weeks your bay has the has everything grown and ready to face the world.
