Pregnancy Week 16

Mother

Thoughts and life are now very much about pregnancy. It can be difficult for the people around you to understand everything that is going on in your body. Then it can be nice to meet other pregnant women. If you do not know anyone else who is expecting children, there are many meeting points online. It can be nice to be in the company of others who go through the same things to complain about the inconvenience or sigh brought over small baby clothes.

Pregnancy Week 13-16

The fetus

Loud noises outside the abdomen can cause the fetus to burst. For more information about pregnancy and maternity fashion, please see BESTAAH.COM maternity panties. The fetus continues to practice breathing movements, it can hold its own hand and wiggle its toes. The development of brown fat starts. It should, among other things, help the child to keep warm after birth. Several layers of fat settle on the body during the last trimester.

The fetus now weighs about 140 g.

Mother

Now you can soon notice the first fetal movements. Some think it reminds a bit of muscle twitching, others think it feels like butterflies in the stomach. Mothers who have previously had children often notice these movements a few weeks earlier than firstborns, because they know what they are feeling. For firstborns it is not uncommon for them not to know the movements of the fetus until it has been just over twenty weeks.

The fetus

The first muscle movements of the fetus are not intentionally controlled. The movements start now and the fetus exercises the muscles daily. The fetus can hold the head upright and has several different facial expressions. It empties the bladder about every forty minutes.

The fetus weighs approximately 85 g and is 16 cm long. Now you may be able to see the fetus's gender via ultrasound.

Seat belt during pregnancy

You should always wear a seat belt, even when you are pregnant. The seat belt protects both you and the unborn child. The most common cause of fetal deaths in car accidents is that the mother dies.

Besides the fact that stressful mood swings are common, many people notice that they become more inattentive. You forget things easier, and it can be difficult to keep the concentration up. You can take comfort in the fact that it is only temporary. The heart now pumps out about 20% more blood than before pregnancy - this to provide both you and the fetus with sufficient amounts of oxygen. In most people, the stomach is starting to become clear now, and it's not just you who notice it anymore. Invest in comfortable jogging pants or maternity clothes. Do not squeeze yourself in too small or tight clothing.

The fetus

The ears move from the neck to the head and sit almost in the right place. The head is no longer that big in relation to the rest of the body. The muscles continue to develop and the fetus can, for example, tie the fist. The skin is developing and is thin and translucent. The fetus has a well-developed hearing, and listens to the soothing, yet powerful, sounds from the mother's heart and bowels.

The fetus now weighs about 70 g.

Pregnancy Week 13

Mother

The uterus now begins to rise above the pelvis and the pressure on the bladder begins to decrease. Exercise during pregnancy is healthy, both for you and the fetus. Pregnants who exercise experience pregnancy and childbirth as easier than those who do not exercise. In addition, those who exercise better self-esteem, gain less weight and experience fewer complications. Mild to moderate physical activity prevents pregnancy poisoning. If you are used to exercise, you can continue as usual, but do not take in more than 60-70 percent of your maximum capacity. If you are not used to exercising, then it is not time to start running marathons. You can start exercising now, but take it easy. Ask for advice at the gym if you go on one. They can advise which exercises you should avoid. You should avoid martial arts, handball, football and extreme sports. Read more about this here.

The fetus

The entire skeleton has been formed, but much is cartilage. The process that will make the cartilage harder, ie to the bone, lasts until the birth. Head hair and eyebrows are created and in addition the fetus receives a thin layer of fine hair all over the body. It is called lanugo and protects the body from scratches and damage. The hair remains up until just before birth. The fetus begins to produce hormones and it practices "breathing" amniotic fluid through the lungs.

The fetus is about 11 cm long and weighs 50 g.
