From the 10th week, the baby is called a fetus rather than embryo. The fetus is now about two and a half centimeters long.
Many pregnant women notice significant changes in hair and skin around the 10th week of pregnancy–the hairs are either dense and shiny or they fail increasingly. The skin varies from rather greasy to dry or vice versa. It is useful to have which products in pregnancy should be used best advice at this time by a beautician and a hairdresser.
Between the 9th and 12th week of pregnancy is the first big screening with ultrasound. The doctor measures while the weight of the pregnant women and blood pressure. He examined the urine protein, sugar and pathogens
and determined the hemoglobin content, which indirectly gives a hint on the iron content. In addition, it notes the position of the uterus by it (he felt the through the abdominal wall) measures the distance from the top of the uterus to the belly button. Now, important questions about the pregnancy can be discussed.
In the course of ultrasound, missing the obstetricians and Gynecologists the baby by the Crown until the Po (SSL = Crown rump length) and adjusts, if necessary, the week of pregnancy and therefore the date of birth. He observed and recorded location, movements and heart activity (= with CTG cardiotocography) baby and checks whether maybe even twins are on the way. In addition, he investigated the development of brain, organs and arms and legs of the baby.
There is a difference between pregnancy and age of the baby: altogether a pregnancy is 40 weeks or 10 months. Here, the calculation starts about two weeks before the fertilization – with the first day of the last menstrual period. The Bill has proven, because not every woman the date of ovulation retroactively clearly determine. In the 10th week, the baby is therefore about eight weeks old.
The baby in the 10th SSW
From the 10 week baby called no more embryo but fetus (also: fetus)-it starts the so-called fetal phase. The small cock that thefetuses of mammals just look like in the first few weeks, has now made back. The baby can already visibly engage its muscles in the 10th week of pregnancy and fidgets and bounces hard. It is now about two and a half centimeters long (SSL = Crown rump length).
The baby literally floating in the amniotic sac. The amniotic fluid, which is constantly renewed, protects it from drying out, as well as shock from the outside. More and more nerve cells, which combine lightning fast with each other form in the brain. Three vessels, which the baby is fed and can dissipate its waste products are in the umbilical cord.
Already trained joints
The feet of the tiny being are still poorly developed in comparison to the hands. This is because that is growing a baby from top to bottom – the head is so most developed. In the 10th week of pregnancy, you can see clearly that the toes are formed. Also, elbows, knees, hands and ankles and fingers are ready trained this week.
In the course of the pregnancy, the size and weight of the baby will evolve always individual. The following values can be only average values. Parents should therefore not worry, if the values obtained from the obstetricians and Gynecologists differ from the ones mentioned here.
The mother in the 10th SSW
Many pregnant women have now considerably shinier and thicker hair and a very bright, tight skin. In the 10th SSW is the skin of the expectant mother a reason for the younger and firmer appearance of blood flow better. The natural hair loss is hormonally caused slows down, this “surplus” hair falling out but often abruptly so the most pregnant women have now actually more hair on the head – after the birth, what chases up a mighty scare many mothers.
Problems due to hormonal change
However, there are if too few pregnant women, in which the opposite effect have the hormones. Then multiply the pimples and blackheads, the skin is unclean, hair stringy. Because it can help to consult a Hairdresser as well as a beautician and switch the skin care products for skin and hair during this time.
Their pants no longer fit some expectant mothers in the 10th week of pregnancy (see photos at http://www.healthvv.com/), although still no baby bump can be seen.Many pregnant women feel bloated and have to fight, why it might already want to wear looser clothing with blockages.These problems subside, but, if the hormones have calmed, mostly from the 12th week.
Pregnant women should now start with light sport or continue it. If the first pregnancy symptoms subside, it is a great help for the pregnancy and the birth, if the expectant mother is moving much and fit-so it has enough energy for the strenuous phase of the last trimester of pregnancy and birth.
