What's going on with the baby
After the formation of the placenta and the fetus starts to get the nutrients directly from the mother's blood, while the oxygen is fed to the fetus through the uterine walls of blood vessels.Therefore, before the oxygen it was not enough, and now it is more than enough.In the embryo there are many forces, and he began to grow rapidly: at 6-8 week weight gain is significantly increased compared to the previous month, and if earlier it was growing at a rate of 1 mm per day, now -with a rate of 2-3 mm inday.
At the same time begins to produce amniotic fluid - a colorless, sweetish taste, in which the fetus will be all 9 months.In its composition, it is quite interesting.Through it carried out the metabolism of the fetus.If this ever happens self-cleaning and protection from external influences.
During the so-called "water existence" periconceptional liquid in the bag occupies a much larger volume than the fruit itself.Over time, this ratio changes, and the time of birth (and sometimes before) he no longer floats and firmly fixed, and only washer fluid.At the initial stage of the fetus "drifting", and even if a woman accidentally hit in the stomach, it will not be damaged, and will vibrate in the amniotic fluid.
