Intrauterine growth

Intrauterine growth is composed of two stages: embryo growth and fetal growth. Your baby’s development in the womb is defined by the growth of complex structures, maturity and organ’s functionality, as well as weight gain and growth. Through a fetal ultrasound, you’re able to estimate your baby’s weight, gestational age, anatomical features and blood flow, as well as fetal movement and heart rate. An ultrasound could reveal data about fetal deformities or any other red flags.

The development of your baby depends on these factors:

• Nurturing environment
• The adequate genetic information
• Placental functioning and nutrient supply
• Mom’s health
• Hormonal secretions

Babies grow faster during the third trimester due to the organs and the body parts that are already formed. Therefore, your belly will grow a lot more during the last three months. Remember, keep a nutritious diet, take care of your body, and visit your doctor periodically. These are all very important for your baby’s healthy development!
