Signs Of A Fetus Not Developing?
I’m 11w but my nausea and vomiting has decreased, not like early pregnancy, my appetite is like normal, I just get full easily, is this normal? I’m afraid it won’t develop because my stomach isn’t growing, it’s still like I’m not pregnant.
Thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
The increase in the size of the abdominal circumference during pregnancy is very dependent on how fast the development of the fetus and the shape of the mother's body before pregnancy. In general, at the age of 11 weeks, there is no significant change in the body of pregnant women. The stomach will enlarge in general when the gestational age enters the age of 18 months, which is when the uterus has enlarged through the pelvic cavity. The enlargement is seen below the navel slightly and not all pregnant women feel this change in abdominal enlargement, especially if the mother was already obese because of a thick layer of fat tissue.
The most important thing is the growth of the fetus in accordance with the gestational age that occurs. Entering 20 weeks of gestation or about 5 months of pregnancy, there will be significant changes again where the baby is more active and the face is clearly visible. For more details, entering the age of 16 weeks or 4 months pregnant, it is advisable to perform an ultrasound examination to assess fetal development. The appetite of each pregnant woman is different, some have an increased appetite and some even have a drastic decrease in appetite, especially in the first 3 months. If in your condition where your appetite is quite good then there is nothing to worry about. No less important is how to get enough nutrition that is balanced and in accordance with the needs of the mother and fetus.
That's all I can say, hopefully useful.
