12th Week of Pregnancy

What is in the 12th week of pregnancy for MOM & baby…

In the 12th week, the baby is about five centimeters long (SSL = Crown rump length). Now go the 3rd month of pregnancy and the first trimester to end. The so-called “critical period” ends with the 12 week also: now the risk of miscarriage decreases rapidly.

12th Week of Pregnancy

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.

Ultrasound examination

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.

Further investigation in the 12 week

In a high-risk pregnancy or on the advice of the doctor and a chorionic villus biopsy can be performed between the 10th and 12th week. With their help, you can demonstrate genetic characteristics (E.g., trisomies or certain metabolic diseases). The result is inconclusive, you can connect an examination of amniotic fluid (amniocentesis).

Between the 11th and 14th week is also the right time for a neck fold measurement. Thus, it is possible, certain genetic disorders (E.g. down’s syndrome) and certain to rule out heart and skeletal defects or detect.

Neck fold measurement, chorionic villus sampling and amniocentesis are not services of the statutory health insurance. Who want to carry out these investigations, must bear the costs themselves, as long as the woman doctor sees no increased demand (in the framework of a high-risk pregnancy).

There is a difference between pregnancy and age of the baby: altogether a pregnancy is 40 weeks or 10 months, says http://www.societypically.com/. 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 12th week, the baby is therefore about ten weeks old.

The baby is in the 12th week

In the 12th week, the baby is approximately five centimeters long. It weighs approximately 16 grams and the head, which has a circumference of ewta 20 millimeters, is still huge in comparison to the rest of the body.

In the 12th week of pregnancy the eyes gradually shift forward from the side of the head. The eyelids are already set. The baby can move even the lips and head and body rotate back and forth.

Now, the baby also begins to swallow the amniotic fluid. It can yawn now and gets hiccups-both important breathing techniques more often.

The placenta takes over her job

The yolk sac has been dissolved completely in the 12th week of pregnancy. So far he has fed the baby – now is the placenta but ready and can supply the fetus with nutrients and oxygen.

Because the neural pathways are now well developed, the baby can move – if too little co-ordinated – already. It can make for example a fist and turn the foot and hand joints. Soon, the expectant mother is can track the movements of the child.

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 12 week

Some pregnancy complications, such as constant fatigue and morning sickness subside in the 12th week of many pregnant women. The first large section of pregnancy, the 1st trimester ends with the 12th week of pregnancy. The maternal body has adapted now to the hormonal changes and the so-called “critical period” ends. Now, the risk of miscarriage decreases very rapidly.

Increased need for iodine
From the 12th week of pregnancy, pregnant women need to take more iodine with food. For now, the thyroid gland of the baby absorbs the work and deprives the body of the mother-important iodine. If necessary the need for dietary supplements or medicines can be met. Pregnant women should definitely deny that with their obstetricians and Gynecologists. The daily iodine requirement is now about 250 milligrammes-who does not know whether this need with food can be met, should ask the doctor.

More active thyroid, some pregnant women are upset now more often irritated and listless, sometimes downright depressed.Expectant mothers should treat more often rest breaks and time for itself.
