Baby Growth During Pregnancy

The fetus turns out has a few lessons while in the fetus every stages in womb. Stage get skills before being born into the world.

Here are the skills they have babies in the womb, according to Fred J. Schwartz, MD, an anesthesiologist from Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta, was launched from detikheatlh:

1. Thumb Sucking

Naturally, if most babies love to suck your thumb, because it turns out this habit has been started in the womb. This helps baby's sucking reflex when it comes to feeding, the mother no longer need to force for thrusting nipples. Expertise is starting to suck his thumb since the 19 th week because the baby's brain has reached millions of motor nerves, so he was able to make conscious movements such as thumb sucking.

2. Swim

Since the baby in the womb he was already used to being in the water for 9 months, the amniotic fluid. Babies are happy-happy to swim in at 20 weeks gestation. Today, children are making active movements that can be felt mother, possibly because of the length of new long-half of new born and weighed about 340 grams so that he still had plenty of room to swim.

3. Hiccup

When pregnant, women sometimes feel the continu movement in one part of his stomach. Could be the time the fetus is a hiccup. This is usually felt since the content of stepping into the 25th week. This indicates that the fetus was practicing breathing. Currently, fetal breathing and release the amniotic fluid, when amniotic fluid is ingested too much then he will be hiccups. This is something natural.

4. Listen

Many have suggested that pregnant women often communicate with the fetus in her womb. This is true, because although still in the womb, the fetus is able to hear her own voice and the voices of others around him. When performing ultrasound 4 dimensions, in addition to checking the completeness of the organs, the doctor also will ask for the fetus to do something and see the response of the fetus. For example, when the fetus is head down, when the doctor asked him to uphold the head, the fetus was able to follow commands. So pregnant women should be careful in speaking because the fetus can hear if her mother was angry. This was proved by the direct reaction of stomach tightening.

5. Distinguishing the Light and Dark

Several studies have shown that babies in the womb 27-28 weeks to open his eyes, so was able to distinguish between dark and light. Can be seen when the doctor put a flashlight in the stomach, he could see light coming through the wall of the uterus. Even if the fetus could wink he too was dazzled.

6. Expressing Yourself

Since the fetus in the womb was already able to express themselves in accordance with his mother was feeling. If the mother is in a state of happy, sit back while listening to music, then the fetus will also feel the happiness so that he would smile.

7. Learning Two Languages

Apparently, the baby in the womb can learn to understand the language he often heard, even up to two languages ​​at once. And this ability to carry over until they are born. In a study published in Psychological Science, infants who are accustomed to hearing two languages ​​during the mother's womb will be easier to learn two languages. This is also consistent with the research psychologist at the University of British Columbia and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development in France.

Sex the Days of Pregnancy

This will happen when you are entering a period of pregnancy and after childbirth. Typically, most couples experience the intensity of which tend to decline to have sex. But psychologist Stephanie Buehler, PsyD, CST, a certified sex therapist in Orange County, California said, sex during pregnancy and after childbirth is a subject that inspires a variety of reactions and behaviors, depending on the woman.

As a sex therapist, mostly womenfolk always ask him about the intimate relationship during and after pregnancy. As quoted from page, the following important questions are commonly asked questions about sex mothers:

1. Sexual desire as what many women want during pregnancy?Desire women during pregnancy is really varied, some of them there who desperately wanted an intense sexual relationship, but some are feeling too tired and very little desire an intimate relationship with her husband.

In general, she feels her body is not sexy, especially in the first trimester, when they try to cope with morning sickness. In the second trimester, they may feel better and have more energy for sex. Some women feel like having sex when the age of third trimester abortion, but many are beginning to feel tired. Finding a comfortable position for sex also can be a problem. As a suggestion, you can try other positions, such as "spooning" or rear position, to make intercourse easier.

2. Husband does not want sex during pregnancy, what is wrong?Honestly, some men do not find passion and sexiness to the pregnant woman's body. They may only see the bodies of their wives as baby-making machines rather than for sexual pleasure.

The average man feared to have sex for fear of hurting the baby. "More funny again, some couples fear that if they knew that the baby's father and mother having sex," said Buehler.Buehler also suggest it is better to speak frankly with your partner to understand the feelings or fears and think about how you can both be happier.

3. Is having sex during pregnancy harm the baby?If you are in good health and has no risk of harm, such as previous miscarriage or related to age, sex will not interfere with pregnancy. There was some concern when reaching orgasm. Many assumptions can lead to contraction and causes fatigue. You should consult with your obstetrician if you have any complaints.

4. What happens to babies when pregnant women have an orgasm?Every relationship has reached orgasm, according to sex therapist, will produce endorphins or 'happy chemicals "for the prospective mother. "What's felt the mother, can make the baby feel the same, but it would not hurt and no effect for the baby," said Buehler. You may feel contractions, but if the relationship is conducted berlangusng old, this is normal. So just enjoy!

5. The general rule to have sex is to wait six weeks after giving birth. Is this suitable for everyone?No! "Six week rule" generally refers to the time it takes for the uterus return to its original size, before the baby is born and to restore conditions in the womb.

Every woman has a different healing process. You must be feeling tired baby care. So, maybe you're not too tasteful intercourse with her husband. If you need one or two more weeks to get in touch, live alone. Make sure that you and your husband take the time to stay connected physically by hugging, holding hands, massaging each other or shared bath.

6. The husband felt the sadness of a sudden after a baby. What can soothe her mood?Apparently, men also may experience post-partum depression. A recent study showed that as many as 10 percent of American men become depressed after a baby.

This may be triggered by fatigue, difficulties faced greater responsibility or mixed feelings at being a father. Recognizing this possibility, do not hesitate to seek help if you see your husband became depressed. Signs of depression in men is interesting themselves, so easily offended, poor appetite, consuming alcohol or other habit changes.

Care During Pregnancy

Research Dr. Tiffany Field from the University of Miami School of Medicine in the United States, proving the cause of massage can decrease stress hormones in the body of pregnant women. The touch itself, is very important not only for their physical, but also to emotional pregnant women, the benefits of other massage:

  1. Improves blood circulation, helping delivery of oxygen and nutrients to body cells of pregnant women and her fetus. This means that increase vitality and reduce fatigue experienced by mothers and provide better nutrition to the fetus.Reduce stress on the heart because the blood circulation more smoothly thanks to the massages.

  6. Helps relax nervous tension, thus helping pregnant women to be easy to sleep soundly.

However, it must be remembered that not all pregnant women can follow this massage program, such as mothers with difficult pregnancies and mothers womb is still 1-5 months of age. Another thing, massage for pregnant women should not be made by any masseur, but must be by a trained therapist. It deals with certain body parts in pregnant women that if massage will cause uterine contractions early. However, massage in the area of ​​the uterus (abdominal) should be avoided because it can lead to stimulation of contractions, sometimes even painful. Massage the wrong way it makes women need other treatments to relieve pain and contraction.

Music therapy

Music can be defined as a blend of sound stimuli that make up regular vibrations that can provide the sensory stimuli, organs, and also emotional. This means that individuals who listen to music will respond, both physically and psychologically, that will arouse the body's systems, including the activity of glands in it. In pregnant women, the activity of various glands in the body will affect the development of the baby. Okay just because it does not lead to physical stimuli, would also create an atmosphere to relax when the music is the music played a quiet, gentle, and remedy.

Color therapy

In the medical field, color therapy were classified as electromagnetic medicine or treatment with electromagnetic waves. The body has an automatic default response to the color and light without realizing it and have been genetically programmed. This can happen because it basically is an element of light color and light is one form of energy. Energizing the fitting on the body will cause a positive effect.

The energy given to pregnant women to help achieve desired conditions. For example, the color orange to give pleasure or joy. Green is a natural color that refers to the purity and harmony. The color green is considered an extraordinary remedy because it is used to balance and stabilize the body's energy. Also stimulate the process of thinking and learning, in addition to stimulating growth. May be followed, especially since this activity does not cause physical stimulation in pregnant women.


Aromatherapy for healing the so-called medical aromatherapy (aromatologi) is done with reference to the health sciences. For this purpose also aromatologi use essential oils or essential oils are the essence of plants. This therapy can be carried by pregnant women since the early trimester to overcome the typical problems of early trimester, morning sickness.Okay, because aromatherapy does not cause physical stimuli, would also create an atmosphere to relax and reduce stress. It should be remembered, usually young pregnant women are very sensitive to smells. So the selection should be individualized aroma and not be forced.

Spa Therapy

Spa for pregnant women is somewhat different from ordinary spa. No wonder, if not all of the spa have this program. Spa treatments provide comfort and relaxation for pregnant women, one pregnant woman footbath for foot clean and free from tension due to hold an increased body weight.

There is also a treatment with a warming-up or the mother's body covered with warm blankets and then gently massaged. If all the muscles are loose then began the massage stage of your upper back until your lower back and towards the neck and shoulder and center chest area. The goal is to relieve breathing. Done all that, the mother's body will be wiped with a warm towel.

Before joining the program make sure you visit the spa has a special therapist for pregnant women. Generally, the therapist is already getting special training and provided insight into the psychological condition of the mother who is pregnant. Noteworthy is the pregnant woman's body electrolyte balance. Therefore, avoid the spa program that causes excessive sweat out (sauna, for example) so the body can not quickly dehydrated and electrolyte balance disorder. In addition, warmer temperatures can increase the production of prostaglandin hormones that can stimulate uterine contractions.


HypnoBirthing is a welcome relaxation techniques for childbirth. Performed with a variety of relaxation techniques and suggestions via the sweep.Good if followed by pregnant women because it causes a pleasant atmosphere.


Principle tantamount to pregnancy exercise, only exercise was conducted in the water. The goal for fitness, train breathing and blood circulation. The surplus, the movement in the water is free from pressure on joints, making it very safe. Mom can immediately feel the benefits. Water sports are good, but should be supported with good water conditions and the conditions are good also pregnant. Feared contaminated water will actually cause infection in the womb.

First Sign of Pregnancy

In most pregnancy test that uses a color indicator, whether in the form of lines, change the plus sign, or dots of color, the color that will arise if the mother is pregnant. Even if the color was not too sharp. Generally, the more hormone hCG in urine, a color indicator that arises is getting stronger.

The Risk of Stress on the Fetus and How to Solve it!

Pregnant women who are stress will give birth to babies who are at high risk of allergy. This is expressed by Dr. Rosalinda Wright of Harvard Medical School in Boston. Wright and colleagues studied 1,000 women pregnant in New Zealand for a certain period of time. As a result, they found the woman that stress during pregnancy will give birth to babies with higher levels of immunoglobulin E (IgE) high. IgE plays an important role in the development of an allergic response.  

However, if levels are excessive, can damage the body. Overreaction occurs if the amount of IgE antibodies in the body beyond normal limits. In normal conditions, the amount of IgE 200. However, the stress in pregnant women, babies born to IgE levels of more than 200, even closer to 1,000.  

With the amount of excess, IgE binds easily with each other, causing cell rupture, and chemical substances including histamine, a substance that causes allergy, will come out. Stress is the accumulation of body's reaction to the situation or environment that looks dangerous or difficult. Symptoms - symptoms of stress:  

  1. become irritable and angry with friends, family or colleagues
