Pregnancy Timeline – How Does a Child Develop?

For pregnant women, it is important to know how a child grows and develops until he/she is brought into this world. The week-by-week pregnancy timeline is indeed one useful tool in order to understand and appreciate better the process of bearing a child.

Pregnancy is the development of the embryo into a fetus. This is associated with the development of the body of the mother during this period.

First month

During the first month of pregnancy, the embryo’s development must be closely monitored. This is the critical stage of its formation. And simultaneous with this, the health of the mother must be at its best, because it will greatly affect the still forming embryo. Alcohol, drugs, caffeine and others must be avoided. At the fourth week, blastocyst cells embed themselves at a thickening portion of the womb. Doctor’s advice must be sought if the mother is suffering with sicknesses at this stage.

Second month

At the sixth week, the embryo becomes fetus, about the size of a bean. Its spine and nervous system begin to form. On the second week, heart begins to show. Morning sickness and other discomfort of pregnancy begin to appear.

Third month

At the middle of the month, the umbilical chord is formed giving nourishment to the fetus. It’s now about 8 centimeters in length and weighs about 60 grams. The threat of miscarriage is lessened at this point. It is at this point that the approximate date of birth can be determined.

Fourth month

The fetus has toes, finger nails, eyebrows and eyelashes. He is also covered with hair called lanugo, which serves as insulation for the fetus.

Fifth month

At the halfway of the 9-month pregnancy, the fetus can hear the outside world noises. He moves a lot and he may be able to feel the wall of his mother’s stomach. He is now about 300 grams or more than haft pound. His gender can now be identified.

Sixth month

The fetus’ skeleton and skull begin to harden. Its taste buds start to function and his feels of touch. He is now complete. He can exit to the outside world, but with slim chance of survival. Mother’s uterus begins to press against the diaphragm for more space for the fetus, but less space for the lungs of the mother. This sometimes causes hardness in breathing for her.

Seventh month

At this point the pregnancy is for the purpose of growth. The fetus is now opaque from being translucent. Fetus might be 800 grams now (1.5 pounds) and 35 cm (more than 1 foot) long.

Eight month and ninth month

This period prepares the mother’s body for the birth of her baby. She can feel the constant movements of her baby that cause her inconveniences. Finally, the baby is brought out into our world.

I hope this pregnancy timeline will help you to gain a better understanding on the forming of a fetus into a baby.

Verse 1 —
Ladies and gentleman, welcome to Brasilia,
Football capital of the world, it’ll steal ya,
Life for a night whilst you’re on the edge of your seat,
Biting your nails waiting for victory or defeat,
And the weak don’t even compete, it’s the best of the best,
The rest are crying tryna form a protest,
Ibra! I’m talking to you!
but wait, let’s get back on track,
Cause right now, yeah right now we’re,

Chorus x2 —
Hitting up Brazil (What),
We do it our way,
Representing the world (Uh),
We’re talking replay,
Im not gonna sing it till I see you got ya hands up,
Sing it (Up),Sing it (Up),

Verse 2 —
This the – World Cup, yeah, emotions are flying,
Got the fireworks going off, Balotelii supplying,
Eyeing him us is Neymar, setting up the Claymores bombs,
Each nation’s about to get it on,
It’s do or die, a warfield, no time for failure, no time to freeze,
On the other hand, you got every team thinking they can win at penaltieeezzz..
With a psychologist.. Please

Yeahhhh, I’ve been waiting 4 years
Long time coming
Now the world cup is here
You’ve got the players, the fans, did I mention burger flipping vans
32 teams and maybe a bit of romance.
And I’m buzzing for more!
My current generation play better than ever before!
You got Ronaldo, Messi,
that nutty geeza Balotelli
talk about the best
Hands up if you agree!

Chorus x2

Rise up,
Beat the rest,
Win the cup yeah like I’m George Best,
This here,
Is our time,
Climbing to the top at our prime!

Believe me as we here shine,
Skills so sick and sublime.
got the people cheering; screaming
as we do the dealing
raise the roof
destroy the ceiling
even BEP be feeling,

In the country of Brazil
Where I like to chill
Worked hard to get up hill
Now I’m worth a mill

My team I’m reppin’ still
What you scoring?

Shock the world like I’m Lesnar!
Take the lead saying “Yes sir!”
Buzzing like a pinnacle bee;
getting that nectar!

Chorus x2
