How baby grow in the womb? Secrets of nature
1. How baby develop in the womb?
Prenatal development is a very complicated and mysterious process. Even scientists cannot explain it exactly. At first there are just two cells – woman’s and man’s. They coalesce to a new living cell that will then develop into the baby. In four weeks it will become an embryo. Embryo on this stage does not look like human yet, sometime should pass. Scientists think that embryo developing is like an evolution: firstly a sell, then a group of cells, then it seems to be a little fish, an animal and at last – as a human baby. It even has a tail at start (later the tail disappears). That is because human and animals are similar, although not same.
From second to third month face of the baby forms. A baby grows quickly, so if its mother feels tired, she should just wait (sickness will pass off then), eat and sleep enough and have no stress.
Stress has a big influence to a baby on any time of pregnancy. It is quiet harmful. That is the reason why they advise to be careful with expectant mothers. The woman can even have a miscarriage if she has too much stress. Of course, it happens not usually, but happens.
Early birth is especially dangerous for babies that are younger than 24 weeks. They are not able to live autonomous and even medics hardly can help. After that date the birth is possible (but also is risky).
When it is the 32nd week, the baby takes a position that will allow it to get out from the womb.
On the 35th its bones become stronger except the scull. Scull stays elastic to make the birth easier for mother and baby
On the 37th week baby is almost able to be born.
40th-41st week is the most emotional for the mother as it is the time of lying-in. Sometimes the birth comes later: it depends on the mother’s and baby’s state. When the baby is born, it cries, as its lungs begin to work.
2. How baby feed in the womb?
In some way baby eats with you. It can even feel the flavor of some dishes you eat. That is because food can influence on the amniotic fluid, and baby notices the changes of it. Future food preferences of baby may also depend on this process.
And the process of feeding itself is provided by the blood stream of the baby’s mother. She consumes a food, nutrients are absorbed into her blood stream and flow with it to the baby through the umbilical cord. That’s why woman should eat much – to get enough of food to support herself and the fetus.

In the end of pregnancy (ten weeks before the birth) baby starts to distinguish the sounds from outside: music, voices, especially mother’s voice.
