2 Prenatal Development From conception to birth…. the 40 week miracle!!


4 Review 1. Ovulation has occurred in the female body. The egg is transported down the fallopian tube.  Fertilization takes place in the F_____. Only one S ____ may penetrate the O____. Conception has occurred! If more than one ovum is present, they may both be Fer_____ and this will cause multiple births.  A fertilized ovum will implant itself in the U__________ and begin to develop.  Beginning of life!

6 Figuring your due date  Take the first day of your last period February 7 th  Go back 3 months November 7 th  Add 7 days November 14 th Give or take 2 weeks

7 Pre-Natal Development  Growth of the baby from conception to birth 40 weeks, 10 months, 280 days, 3 trimesters.  Very rapid: goes from the size of a pencil dot (one cell) to a 7 ½ pound (200 billion cells) in 9 months. 4 weeks = poppy seed, 5 weeks = grain of rice, 7 weeks = blueberry, 14 weeks = apple, 15 weeks = orange, 39 weeks = watermelon If this rate of growth continued past birth, the baby would weigh 160 lbs by its first birthday.

8 3 Trimesters (about 13 weeks each) 1 st Trimester – focus is on physical development – Define ovum, sperm, conception/fertilization – The greatest time of risk and vulnerability for birth defects to the developing fetus. 2 nd Trimester – Increased organ development – Define Quickening Lanugo – Physically the easiest on the Mom 3 rd Trimester – Continues to grow and practice using body and bodily functions – Define Vernix and Lightening – Physically the most demanding on Mom

9 Prenatal Terms Belly People Zygote (week 0-2) Embryo (weeks 3-8) Fetus (weeks 9-40)

10 Station 2 Pregnancy House

11  Uterus / Womb The fetus grows inside this. Pre-natal Development “House”

12 Flat pancake shaped organ with amniotic sac attached to one side and the umbilical cord attached to the other. filters nutrients and oxygen to the fetus. At 4 months completely developed By birth it is 1” thick, 8” diameter, 1lb If the woman is undernourished during her pregnancy, the placenta does not transfer essential nutrients to the fetus. Placenta (Latin for Cake)

13 Umbilical Cord 20” long and reaches from fetus’ stomach to the placenta. Carries away waste from the baby and returns the waste products back to the mother. Brings oxygen, food, and nutrient rich blood to the embryo to keep it alive.  ▪ Thick garden-like hose that will not knot due to Whartons’ Jelly substance.

14 Amniotic Sac and Amniotic Fluid Sac contains embryo and amniotic fluid A clear and transparent membrane that is very strong until broken 4 cups of amniotic fluid at birth that is replenished 9 times a day. The fluid protects baby from bumps, bruises, and jolts Prevents shock to the fetus, keeps a constant temperature, and keeps the fetus from adhering to the uterine wall.

15 Station 2 Month at a Time Use this link to help you fill in this portion of your study guide

16 Month 0 Begins 3 weeks after 1 st day of last period Ovulation occurred and the egg/ovum was released Sperm (several hundred million) deposited into female’s body and begins travel to find the egg in the fallopian tube. The sperm beats against the ovum membrane Sperm sheds its tail and burrows inside. 2 cells now become one and begin to quickly divide to form a human being. Begins to travel down the fallopian tube and 5-7 days after conception, the zygote implants itself into the endometrial lining

17 Human Egg with Coronal Cells This image is of a purple human egg sitting on a pin. The egg is coated with the zona pellicuda, a glycoprotein that protects the egg but also helps to trap and bind sperm. Two coronal cells are attached to the zona pellicuda.

18 Human Zygote and Sperm It looks like the world at war, but it is actually five days after the fertilization of an egg, with some remaining sperm cells still sticking around. The embryo and sperm cell nuclei are stained purple while sperm tails are green. The blue areas are gap junctions, which form connections between the cells.
