Week 4 of Your Pregnancy
During this week, the majority of pregnant women discover they are 4 weeks pregnant. Now, if you want to know about most of your pregnancy then, you can read this article week by week.
Baby of 4 Weeks Pregnant
Your fertilised egg, known as a zygote, which is more like a ball of 32 cells, is about the size of a poppy seed. The baby is approximately 0.01 inches long and weighs approximately 0.04 oz.
Now, there are three layers in your baby’s body: ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm. These layers will be converted into organs and tissues.
The inner layer (ectoderm) will form the nervous system, skin, hair, nails, mammary glands, sweat glands, and enamel for the teeth.
The middle layer (mesoderm) will develop into the heart, circulatory system, skeleton, connective tissues, blood system, and muscles.
The outer layer (endoderm) will give shelter to the lungs and convert into the lining of the gastrointestinal tract, pancreas, thyroid, and liver.
Arm and leg buds will start developing during this week, even though they are not exactly clear.
Other necessary things that will develop are the amnion and the yolk sac. The amnion is filled with amniotic fluid, which collects around and shields the growing embryo.
4 Weeks Pregnant Mother
This time will probably be the week of your period. If it doesn’t happen, then it may be the first sign of your pregnancy.
What happening in the body
During this time, the embryo itself implants itself in your uterus. Some women may feel cramping and spotting, while some may not feel anything. The amniotic cavity and the placenta start forming in the body.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Hormone
After the implantation of the embryo, a hormone known as HCG begins to form which maintains the lining of the uterus.
This hormone also gives the signal to the ovary to stop releasing an egg per month, which happens normally.
This is the hormone that creates the symptoms of pregnancy. Tiredness, aching breasts and nausea can occur with premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
