The women have the precious gift of giving life and housing for 9 months a new little being. At this time, babies can perform different movements that many new parents do not know.
Thanks to science and technology are that today we can know what kind of reactions and movements can make a baby in the womb of the mother, with total normality. After seeing this, you will be convinced that the conception is a true miracle.
1. Can hiccup
At week 27 of gestation, the baby is already quite developed. However, his lungs and some internal organs are not yet fully formed. Therefore, the child may have some episodes of hiccups, this is completely normal, and even some mothers may feel the tingling caused by the baby in the womb.
The reason for the hiccups is because of the stage of development in which it is since the diaphragm is exercised by this involuntary movement, it is like preparation to be able to breathe without problems when it reaches the outside world. There is nothing to worry about; it is normal for hiccups to last from 5 minutes to half an hour.
2. Can kick and make sudden movements
Although mothers do not feel it, since week 15, the baby begins to move a lot inside the womb. He usually curls up, turns on his back and even moves his legs and arms, the most curious thing is that his toenails and hands have already begun to grow.
But, as it grows and occupies more space in the uterus, mothers can feel the kicks and movements of the baby a little abrupt, since it seeks to accommodate itself in different ways. It’s amazing, but in the womb, little as we feel when we wake up in our beds every ma ñ ana.
3. Move eyes
As of week 16, the fetus can move its eyes, although it still can not open them, because they are not fully formed. But do not worry because by week 25 your baby’s eyes are almost ready to see the world and you can even react if some light source peeks through your belly. The little one will try to cover himself with his little hands because of the discomfort caused by it.
4. Take some of the amniotic fluid
Approximately, from week 16, will begin to develop the sense of taste. Some studies at the Monell Center for Chemical Senses in Philadelphia revealed that the taste of the food the mother consumes ends up in the amniotic fluid, which allows babies to taste what their mothers consume. Other theories mention that the taste for vegetables and healthy food can be enhanced since pregnancy.
As the baby grows, he can even stick his tongue out to taste the amniotic fluid, which is extremely curious.
5. Suck his little finger
From the womb, the little one is learning to know his limbs; this act is a natural reflex that will prepare him to suck the milk of the mother. It is completely normal and is something that begins to do from week 18 when it is only 14 centimeters.
6. Listen and recognize the voice of his mother
As of week 19, the baby’s brain has developed quite a bit, and at this point, the sense of sight, smell, touch and especially the ear is much sharper. Therefore, the child is already able to recognize the voice of his mother. Many women start talking to their children at this stage, which can be relaxing for him.
7. Smile and yawn
At 18 weeks of gestation, the baby begins to have more activity, so it begins to yawn, in some ultrasound, it is possible to see the little ones with this unmistakable expression. They even begin to smile from week 28, in some ultrasound scans these baby gestures are shown.
8. Can urinate
Babies must eliminate what their small body does not need, so after feeding on what the mother provides, the small ones eliminate toxins by urinating after week 18.
This balances the amniotic fluid and changes its composition as the pregnancy progresses since the baby fills his bladder and empties it every half hour. Do not be alarmed; it is the most normal thing in the world. Even before delivery, when the source is broken, the color of the liquid may be yellowish.
