    Inside Pregnancy: Girl or Boy? | BabyCenter

    – [Narrator] Your baby’s sex is set at conception. At around seven weeks your baby’s internal sex organs such as ovaries and testes begin to form in the abdomen. Male and female sex organs and genitalia look the same at this stage because they’re derived from the same structures. At around nine weeks boys and girls begin to develop differently. In girls a tiny bud emerges between the tissue of the legs. This bud will become the clitoris. The membrane that forms a groove below the bud separates to become the labia minora and the vaginal opening. By 22 weeks the ovaries are completely formed and move from the abdomen…

    – [Narrator] Between 15 and 20 weeks, your baby will more than double in size. As his body grows, his nervous system is rapidly maturing. His nerves are connecting his brain to the rest of his body. Traveling from the brain through the brain stem and down the spine. And beginning to extend into his torso and limbs. Your baby’s skeleton is changing too. The soft cartilage is starting to harden into bone. This happens first in the arms and legs. Sensory development is picking up speed. Your baby’s brain is designating special areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch. At this stage, your baby may be able to…

    Best Pregnancy Exercises for First Trimester

    What are the best pregnancy exercises for first trimester? Not jumping jacks or hard lunges if it triggers your morning sickness. I haven’t had bad morning sickness. No matter your routine, don’t go off running or for a hard workout without getting properly hydrated. A morning run after you threw up breakfast is bad for you and the baby. Not to mention the risk of passing out from low blood sugar. I was more concerned about dehydration, but that’s a factor too. So what can I do? You can still do cardio workouts as long as your heart rate isn’t over 140 beats per minute. That’s why the doctor said…

    Inside Pregnancy: Weeks 1-9 | BabyCenter

    – [Narrator] Within a week of conception, your fertilized egg, known as a blastocyst, will make its way to your uterus. The egg is about the size of a pen tip. In days, the cells in the egg arrange themselves into groupings. The inner cell mass will become your baby. The outer cells will become the amniotic sack and placenta. The blastocyst then sheds its protective casing in a process called hatching and burrows into the lush uterine wall. Around week five, your developing baby is the size of a sesame seed. The cells that once formed the blastocyst’s inner cell mass begin organizing and arranging, giving shape to the…

    Inside Pregnancy: Weeks 10 – 14 | BabyCenter

    – [Narrator] At 10 weeks and barely the size of a kumquat, your baby is entering the fetal stage of development. His facial features are defined and his tooth buds are forming. Over the next weeks, his tissues and organs will rapidly grow and mature. The webbing is gone between his fingers and toes and his nails and fingerprints are developing. Your baby can open and close his fists and curl his toes. Thanks to his developing muscles and reflexes, he’s now moving his limbs and kicking up a storm. If this is your first baby though, you likely won’t feel his flutters until 18 to 20 weeks. Through translucent…
