Perkembangan Janin Trimester Pertama

The first trimester is a vulnerable moment for the fetal development, because in this period, the woman is not really aware of her pregnancy. Because pregnancy can only be identified after the fetus already reaches the age of one month. Therefore, Mommy needs to learn the pregnancy signs in the first month to prevent the risk of miscarriage.

Fertile period is when the fertilized ovum will attach into the uterine wall of the expectant mother, and will grow from there. This development will take a shape of a small shrimp and will be enlarged at the age of two months. The future fetal organs will continue to grow and become more perfect. When entering the third month, the fetal organs reach the perfect shape. 

Feet, hands, face, and ears have started to form, while other vital organs will be formed at the end of the third month and becomes more perfect in the fourth month. In the third month, the expectant mother and the husband are able to see the fetus through the ultrasound. 

In the first trimester of pregnancy, Mommy is likely to experience nausea and vomiting which will create discomfort. To reduce nausea and vomiting in early pregnancy, Mommy should take PRENAGEN Mommy emesis twice a day which is clinically proven to help reduce nausea and vomiting up to 90%.
