Calendar of development of the child in the womb
The second week
In the body, women are practicallySimultaneously two important biological cycles: ovulation - the appearance of a mature egg, ready for fertilization; And during the endometric cycle, the uterine wall is prepared for the implantation of a fertilized cell. Both cycles are closely related to each other, because endometrial changes are regulated by hormones that are secreted in the ovary.
The third week
Egg and sperm met in the uterusPipe. As a result of their merger, a zygote was formed - the first and most important cell of the unborn child. All the subsequent 100 000 000 000 000 cells of his body are the daughters of the zygote! Three days after fertilization, the embryo consists of 32 cells and is similar in shape to the mulberry berry. By the end of this week, the number of cells will increase to 250, the shape will resemble a hollow ball with a diameter of 0.1 - 0.2 mm.
The fetus is at the earliest stage of developmentIts height can be from 0.36 to 1 mm. The implanted blastocyst plunged deeper into the mucous membrane of the uterus, and the amniotic cavity began to form. Here in the future will be a placenta and a vascular network containing maternal blood.

The length from the crown to the sacrum is about 25 cm. Weight - about 360-370 g. Fruit freely moves inside the uterus. The digestive tract is already able to separate water and sugar from the baby's swallowed amniotic fluid and pass its fibrous contents right up to the rectum.
The fruit weight is about 420 grams, and the length is 27.5 centimeters. The fetus continues to grow and prepare itself for life outside the uterus.
The length from the crown to the sacrum is about 30 cm. Weight - about 500-510 g. The child continues to swallow small amounts of the surrounding fluid and remove it from the body in the form of urine, the child accumulates meconium (original feces).
The twenty-fourth week
The length from the crown to the sacrum is about 29-30 cm. Weight - about 590 - 595 g. In the skin, sweat glands are formed. The baby's skin thickens.
