Pregnant Woman


Pregnancy is also known as gestation, it is the time during which usually one or more than one offspring develops inside a woman. More than one or a multiple pregnancy involves more than one offspring.

Normally pregnancy can occur by sexual intercourse, reproductive technology can also help a woman to get pregnant. 

Pregnancy is divided into 3 trimesters.

  • The first trimesters
  • The second trimesters
  • The third trimesters

The first trimesters is  from week 1 through 12 weeks which also includes conception. When the sperm fertilizes the egg, the fertilized egg at that time travels down the fallopian tube (a pair of tubes along which eggs travel form the ovaries to the uterus), and attaches to the inside of the uterus.

Where it begins to form the embryo and placenta (part of the ovary wall to which the ovules are attached). During the first trimester, the chances of miscarriage (natural death of fetus or embryo) is very high.

The second trimesters is from week 13 through 28 weeks, a woman may feel the movement of the fetus around the middle of the second trimester. You should know that, at 28 weeks, usually more than 92% of babies can survive outside of the uterus, if provided with a very highly, good medical care.

The third trimester is from 29 weeks through 40 weeks. Feelings at this stage of pregnancy tend to go from tiredness to worry and from worry to excitement about the newly unborn baby. During the third trimester your baby continues to grow, and the times comes near for the birth of the baby.

Mother and Child


 When pregnancy occurs or you can say that when a woman gets pregnant, her monthly menstrual period stops for usually 9 months. Childbirth normally occurs around 40 weeks, this is just over nine months where each month averages 30 to 31 days.

A pregnant woman and during pregnancy a woman should avoid taking drugs and alcohol. Regular exercise, blood tests and regular physical examination is needed during the time of pregnancy.

Babies born before 37 weeks are at the higher risk of developing health problems like cerebral palsy.

If you measure this from fertilization, it is nearly about 38 weeks.


A fetus is known as an unborn baby or a human more than 8 weeks after conception. A fetus is an unborn or unhatched vertebrate. A developing human from usually 2 months after conception of birth, compare to embryo sense 1b.
