Pregnancy for 3 Month
The amniotic sac is a water-tight sac that forms around the fertilized egg. It helps in cushioning the growing embryo throughout the Pregnancy for 3 Months. The placenta also starts developing at this point. The placenta is a round, flat organ that connects the mother to the growing embryo and passes all the nutrients and nourishment from the mother to the young one. It also helps in removing waste from the baby.
What all develop in the initial stages:
A primitive face takes form with the large dark circles for the eyes.
- The mouth, lower jawline, and throat develop.
- Blood cells start taking shape, and circulation will begin.
By the end of the first month of pregnancy, your baby is around 6-7 mm- about the size of a rice grain.
2nd Month Of pregnancy:
The baby’s facial features continue to develop. Each ear begins to form the folds. Tiny buds start forming into the arms, legs.
What else forms during this month:
- The neural tube which forms the brain, spinal cord, tissues of the central nervous system starts to form.
- Bones start taking place and replaces the cartilage.
- Even at this point in time, the Digestive tract and sensory organs begin to develop.
At this point, the fetus is about 2.54cm long, the fetus at this stage weighs around 9.45g.
3rd Month of Pregnancy:
By the end of the third month, the baby is fully formed.
It has arms, legs, fingers. Whereas, other organs start to form like fingernails, toenails. The genitals also start to form, but it is very difficult to detect the gender of the baby at this time. The circulatory and urinary system starts to work.
At the end of three months, the fetus will be about 7-10 cm long and weighs about 28g.
