♪ ♪ - Valentine's Day: Is It A Time For Romance Or Just A Way For Business To Sell Flowers And Cards? Look, we can't tell you whether that special person loves you or not. This is just a article asking you to watch it. It's the seven things you didn't know about Valentine's Day.
In ancient Roman times, Valentine was a very popular name and there are several stories about the martyrdom of St. Valentine. According to tradition, the Roman Emperor Claudius II declared that Roman soldiers were not allowed to marry and then made weddings illegal.
A Christian priest named Valentine found this quite exciting and continued to get married in secret. According to another story, another Valentine was jailed for helping Christians and fell in love with the prison guard's daughter. He signed his last letter to her: 'Love, your Valentine.' Apparently they were both beheaded on February 14th.
Some say the church planned the feast of Saint Valentine during the pagan festival of Lupercalia to Christianize the sexy holiday that beat goat skin women to promote fertility in the coming year. However, the most direct descendant of our modern Valentine's Day associated with love and romance comes from the English poet Geoffrey Chaucer. In 1375 he wrote 'Parliament of the Chickens' which contained the line: 'For this was on Valentine's Day when every bird comes there to choose its mate.' Inspired, the 15th century nobles began writing poetry for their love interests as Valentine's Day, a brutal practice at the time as it would take weeks to know if they were spooky. ♪ ♪ Though you might recognize them more by their eggs at Easter, gift the Cadbury Chocolate Company a rose for making Heavenly Match, V-Day and Chocolate.
The company was founded in Birmingham, England in 1824 by John Cadbury, a Quaker, and was originally a coffee and tea maker. John hoped his drinks would serve as an alternative to alcohol. Drinking chocolate was on everyone's lips back then.
And in the 1860s, Cadbury was selling 16 kinds of the stuff. The main by-product was cocoa butter, which Cadbury sold as 'food chocolate', chocolate-coated nougats, hard candies, caramel and more. In a red-hot marketing move to promote their variety of chocolates, John's son Richard sold them in heart-shaped boxes so people could keep the box even when the chocolates were gone to keep their memories and Valentine's Day.
Chocolate was already considered an indispensable pleasure, but it brought those with a sweet tooth to the world in a whole new way. We already know that Chaucer was the first to start a centuries-old tradition of students handing out cartoons notes to their entire fourth grade, inspiring those 11 magical words: 'They bought this card on the way home from CVS, not you ? ' But the oldest known Valentine as we would know it came out of romantic prison in 1415. Charles, Duke of Orleans, referred to his wife Bonne of Armagnac as his 'Valentine' in a letter he wrote to her while imprisoned in the Tower of London during the Hundred Years War.
Translated into English, Charles' poem reads ♪ ♪ So less of Valentine's Day, more of the lyrics of an emo band from 2003, but still pretty good for the Middle Ages.
In a not so happy ending, Charles was imprisoned for 25 years and Bonne died before he was released. It turns out that the practice of trolling in the comment section goes back well before the Internet, as far back as the Victorian era. In the 1800s, in addition to Valentine's Day, people would send vinegar Valentines as a declaration of love, often anonymously, to people they didn't like.
The feelings ranged from a lighthearted prick to seriously harsh. Despised lovers would proclaim liars, cheaters, and alcoholics. Others insulted their enemy's intelligence or physical characteristics.
Many of the day's suffragettes were given vinegars by the sack. Sending Valentines was so popular that UK postal workers were given special meal allowances to keep them going in the days leading up to February 14th. Card making had become much cheaper and easier during this time.
And one company in particular came into being to capitalize on the greeting card craze: Hallmark. The shape of the red heart has become a universal symbol for love, but where does the heart symbol come from? The one used for everything from playing cards to emojis to poorly thought out chest tattoos? Scientists suspect that it could have originated in ancient times with a plant, possibly a giant fennel called silphium. The Greeks and Romans used the plant as a form of birth control, and it became so popular as a contraceptive and linked to sex that it was quickly eradicated.
The ancient city of Cyrene, in modern-day Libya, became so rich from the cultivation of silphium that they used the shape of the plant for their currency, which bore a striking resemblance to our modern heart symbol. Others believe that the symbol originated in the Middle Ages when scientists tried to illustrate Aristotle's ancient writings on anatomy, in which he described the human heart as having three valves with a dent in the center. Some simply believe that the symbol has a resemblance to the chest or buttocks.
Imagine your mom sending you a 'thank you for cleaning your room' text with a peach emoji? Thank you for saving us the embarrassment, Aristotle. Valentine's Day in some Middle Eastern countries gives the phrase 'you shouldn't have done this' a whole new meaning. Celebrating the holiday in Pakistan, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Saudi Arabia could severely punish you.
The belief generally comes from Muslim officials in these countries who view Valentine's Day as a Christian holiday or who believe it is un-Islamic and encourage casual sex and drinking, which is forbidden in traditional Muslim beliefs. In the Indonesian province of Aceh, one could be publicly beaten just by selling gifts. In Malaysia, the Islamic Morale Police searched several hotels on Valentine's Day 2011 and arrested 80 Muslims for sharing rooms without being married.
In Saudi Arabia on Valentine's Day, five men were spotted dancing with six women they were not related to and were sentenced to a total of 39 years in prison in 2014. And in India groups have promoted the idea of abandoning the festival of romantic love and replacing it with a day of worship for parents. Talk about a glow down.
The cute little angel cloud baby we know as Cupid used to be a strong young guy named Eros. Eros comes from Greek mythology, which is older than the Cupid of the Romans. He was probably one of the most powerful of all gods, because he controlled the strongest feeling: love.
His quiver held two types of arrows: golden, to strike overwhelming love, and others, to provoke hatred. He brandished his weapons like a mythological cuff boy and created catastrophic battles of divine proportions. In one story, he shot a gold arrow at Apollo, who fell madly in love with the nymph Daphne, then at Daphne with a lead arrow, causing her to be repulsed by Apollo, which led to a lot of drama.
Classical Greeks. Some scholars believe that the infantilization of eros occurred at the same time as the fall of the social status of women in Athenian society. The Greeks were intimidated by this god who could control their love life, but they were not intimidated by women.
By turning Eros into a cute little baby who always obeyed its mother, Aphrodite, they felt much more comfortable. There was no need to be scared, and now we have an adorable chubby angel to smile about. Dear viewers, you are as special as the moment I saw you for the first time eight minutes ago.
No matter what day it is, I hope it's full of chocolates and golden arrows, no vinegar in sight. Thank you for being with me all these minutes. It means the world to me.
Love, article. ♪ ♪

February 14th Zodiac
Being an Aquarius born on February 14th, your personality is defined by charm, romanticism and impulsiveness. With your warmth and mystery,it may be an understatement to simply say you are charming. Throughout your life you have noticed that people cannot help but to gravitate to your personality.
Hey fish, welcome to your reading for the week of February 8th. This week we're just going to jump in here Pisces as always and look at your current energies with this mainline and then we'll finish with the little tarot here and see what's coming. Also, keep an eye out for your solar moon and sunrise for a full picture of what's going on for you this week.
I feel like something new is opening up for you here, but it's kind of like it's like the beginning of something and I'm not purposely trying to be vague here, Pisces, but we're going to find out what this new thing is ( laughs) that comes in for you? It's not immediately clear what it means that I don't I guess you don't either. I mean, you show up here as the high priestess, but in many ways I feel like this new mysterious path is opening up for your life, but it looks like it is leading to quite a bit of progress. So ri love fish right away, but you start with the antelope.
This card says, 'Think about whether you are on your current path.' So for some of you I want to say, 'Am I on the right track? “Am I making the right decisions or not?” This is not just a decision or a thing here. As I always say, I like bigger pictures.
I don't just focus on the love in my readings, I focus on pretty much anything that could go on in your life and I have the feeling that you are really tapping into here. This antelope on this card has really long antlers or horns here and I kind of like reading this while you're really tapping your intuition or I feel like you need to really use your intuition, especially with this high priestess here too. You have the six of wands, the seven of swords, and the two of goblets here.
Definitely some kind of victory in love. The Tarot of the Seven of Swords is kind of like a solitary wolf-like energy here, Pisces. So, for some of you, I feel that this might be like a bit of self-contained energy that you are dealing with in love.
But I have a feeling that a lot of success is coming in for you in this situation. The Two of Cups is like a perfect match when you get in here. I am wondering if some of you might be trying to make a decision in love.
Even though I just said this is not love reading, I feel like it might be a decision for some of you to consider whether I'm on the right side? Way in love or am i on the wrong path? I thought I saw Two Sixes here, you don't have Two Sixes, but you have Two Sevens. For me, Two Sevens is not an inner fear. So I feel like you need to let go of your fears here Pisces, but I have a feeling that there may have been some kind of run away situation here in the past.
For others, I would say that this is just you anymore. I feel like you need to push forward somehow with this Six of Wands. These seven of swords for me, seven of swords outside of love can only be your ferocity.
It can say that you tr. Are he stealing these swords, the seven of swords from this army that is back here, and he does this so that the swords cannot be used against him in battle, but possibly not against him, he is trying to protect himself from something that may never happen. Not only is he kind of, he can't pick up all of the swords, he only has two swords on this card, so you can't completely protect yourself from risk.
You cannot and cannot completely protect yourself from getting hurt in love where you cannot completely protect yourself from risk in business and things like that says Pisces, I'm just going to tell you, I have a feeling this is mostly about this one middle row speaks. I feel like this is the most important part of reading. They have this Go the Distance card and how I feel in this middle feel Rowis is really talking about it.
The overarching energy of all of your reading is, I feel like if you stop something, if you don't quite go through something you get hurt. But when you go all the way through something I feel like you're in an explosion right through. What the fuck does that mean? Well you know what's on my mind Pisces, when I was a kid I did karate right? And it's like, I've seen all these people we'd break boards in karate and the people who just hit the board and pulled their arm back at the last second, right? They didn't quite go through the board.
These people would injure their hand every time. The people who just got involved all the way through the board, these people would go all the way through the board, right? It didn't matter how big or small someone was. It didn't matter, did it? There were great people who could, 'I can't get through the blackboard.
There were little people who couldn't get through the blackboard and vice versa, right? There are people big and small who could get through this. I have a feeling and I hope that makes sense, this is like a crazy story, says, 'You have to see something through to the end.' For me this is something like energy when there is no other way.
There's no other way if your only option is you know the win is it somehow guarantees your win for some of you I get a very sassy energy and that's the best way to get it to that middle row. It's kind of like this week, I feel like you are coming to this place that you may be in evolving, you develop the energy to just recharge through things. It's like you don't hesitate anymore, there is no longer that last second hesitation where you pull back and hurt yourself, right? And I have a feeling that these are several areas of your life.
And like I said, sometimes when there's no other way, there's no other way. You have the four swords, the emperor and the high priestess are here. I feel this is the hesitation, again I feel that there are secrets.
You think what happens when i'm full? to enter a relationship? For example, will I get hurt on the other side? It's like if you head straight on, if you go past the points where you would normally give up a relationship or where you would normally stop, then you will succeed in it is perfectly okay for you to be in This middle row has to do with this type of energy because there is a collection of planets that will move through your 12th house Pisces. So you're working a lot on that kind of internal hermit energy right here with the hermit. It's like, you are kind of, there's a lot of introspection in reading this.
So again, you have the four swords, the emperor, and the high priestess here. I feel like this is the other best part of this read, the emperor energy. Because I feel like you've done a lot of introspection in the past, right? You've thought a lot, planned a lot of things that you want to do in your life, the way you want your life to be, but again I get through in those moments when it's like you might be on the verge of doing it something to burst, but it's like you don't get to the other side.
And I have the feeling that for some reason this emperor energy says Pisces to me as if I understand the word development here, but I feel like it used to mean more. Perhaps you have tried to develop talents, gifts, skills, and abilities, or you have tried to develop that type of energy that penetrates obstacles, but maybe it just hasn't fully developed. So I feel like some kind of superpower here at Pisces, I feel like you're developing superpowers. (laughs) With this reading you won't hear fish.
And I have a feeling that you are becoming unstoppable. So I definitely like that. You have that openness card again, there is some kind of secret, something that opens up to you here, could involve travel or relocation, you have this travel card.
And again, yes, I realized that there is COVID. And again, in these times, like these readings, maps, right? I always tell people just because it says travel and it stands for travel, of course some of you can travel, but the word travel could also be used by others Things mean. This could be like a journey you are taking internally with the hermit card here, you could be learning something new, like a new talent, new gifts, skill, or ability, or you could just redevelop yourself.
It's like a journey that you are going on. So that's more figurative, as I always say, I feel like I shouldn't have to sort out, but apparently I do. So take it how it vibrates, right? You have the hermit, the side of the pentacles, and the seven of the wands here, fish.
Very closed introspective energy, for some of you I feel like you are hoping for a fresh start, you are hoping for something new with this side of pentacles and you are probably learning a lot with the side of the pentacles and the hermit that shows up like that. That's a lot of learning energy. The Seven of Wands is like some kind of persuasive power again, the Seven of Wands says to me, if you know you know you will be successful.
If you know you know you are going to hack this board in karate and if you know it is you I'll get through to the other side no matter what, then you will. That says the Seven of Wands. So I feel with many of you, this is saying that if you know that you know that you will be successful at something, you will be successful at something.
I get this strange message in this row of pages too, where it's almost like saying that you are needed, I have a feeling that you need less and less detail and I think that's a good thing, so I think That means that in the past you might not have taken any chances without knowing much about that risk, and again I'm not talking about unnecessary risk. I'm just saying, maybe you may have wanted to know more about a person in the past. Maybe you want to know more before you were open to getting involved, how you are ready to get involved in people, situations, jobs with less information.
It's almost like just starting earlier. I think you are skipping steps. I have a feeling that this could lead to mistakes, but again, mistakes are not a bad thing, fish mistakes, that's how we learn.
But at the same time, I feel like it also leads to faster progress with this Go the Distance card, so it's kind of a strange message. I'm getting something about love here I have a feeling that for some of you a vague or a new person is walking in with this side of Pentacles. I'm not so sure you're open to seven-of-wands fish here.
But again, I would say this is not really, I would say this is not necessarily a love reading, but I will immediately draw an extra row instead of waiting until the end. Because again I have the feeling that a mystery is going on here, Pisces, I have a feeling that there is a new path that is opening up for you and I just want to see what that new path is The Ace of Pentacles here and you have the three of the swords here too, could be a new love for sure, and you have the three cup celebration so there might actually be a cure. I keep going here so for some of you that could be a cure, definitely a decision to make Pisces, how interesting.
For some of you, I feel like you are making a very brave decision on this final blow. For some of you, you might decide to go out and be one person and start a new relationship, so I'm definitely getting that energy here with the three of swords and three of goblets here too. I don't really see the Three of Chalices as a third party, but with the Three of Swords I definitely feel myself in the Seven of Swords as well.
Some of you might choose how to give love a chance here. I definitely feel like I'm giving love a chance comes to mind. So I feel like this is going on for some of you, others I feel like you're getting past something faster.
I'm getting strange messages for you too, Pisces. I get this strange message that the grieving process is extremely short. These are the words that come to mind right now.
The grieving process is extremely short, but I feel like that doesn't relate to love. I feel like this is referring to something that just didn't work, like a business idea, job or something. I have a feeling that in the past you may have let disappointment get you down and I have a feeling that you don't let any disappointment get you down and think that here you are between the side of the Pentacles and the Three of Swords very much heal quickly.
It's like, okay, yeah, that sucks, but let's move on to something new with that fork in the street map. You're getting past things very, very quickly here, Pisces. I like that.
So thank you for being here Pisces, I really appreciate it. I will make sure we like this article. I appreciate all of the likes and support, Pisces, but let's see you have the Queen of Pentacles.
For me, Queen of Pentacles is an indication of being at a fork in the road, of making a decision. Again, the four of wands and the three of swords, it's funny every time I bewitch myself every time I always say that these readings are not love readings and then it always becomes a love reading emperor for some of you it could be that you are trying to break free of a lying, cheating, stealing situation here and you have the three swords here too. Definitely a choice to be made here.
I am confused, I wonder if you Pisces are confused about what to do in a love situation. Some of you might just feel confused during this time. I feel like you really need to trust your intuition with this high priestess.
I feel like you just have to trust yourself, easy and simple. Let us continue. Here you have the Queen of Swords, the A ce of Cups, a kind of offer of love comes in.
Definitely like a new love offer. And then Cups Knight in Shining Armor comes for you. To some of you, I feel like myself again, I have a feeling that you could be in a relationship and you might like to have something new here for you.
For some of you, I feel like you're like a foot in a foot out there anyway. For some of you, I feel like you're just saying, 'You know what? , I am ready to embark on something new. 'Like I said, I get a lot of stories for you, Pisces for others, I feel like you're only taking one risk here to get out of a relationship.
As maybe in the past, you would stay in a relationship until something new came up. But here I feel like you're taking, it's like betting on yourself here, fish. Very nice read, I like this energy because here it is like more bold energy.
The way I feel for some of you the first week of February, which actually when you watch this early, we are in the first week of February, I feel like the beginning. It could be very difficult for you Pisces to begin this regression . I have a feeling you might feel very confused on this front row as you make decisions, but it's almost like things are changing quickly on this second week, week eight because I have a feeling to get you out of this confusion.
I have a feeling some of you might tell yourself that you are very worried, kind of as retrograde as maybe that first week, you are very confused and you think, 'Oh' no, this is going to be another that regression may be, but I feel like things are clearing up very quickly with this Queen of Swords. It's like, you have a realization, there is some kind of wake up call, some kind of energy for you here. I feel like your life is changing a lot.
You have the wheel of fortune here, the seven of the cups and twice the seven of the wands. You discovered something here, piscess, something that will change the direction of your life the wheel of happiness. For some of you, I feel like you are getting closer and closer to your destiny, like you did last year.
All of your Pisces readings were kind of about getting on your way and just being more confident and more certain that you are doing the right thing. So this is the wheel of fortune. Good luck is coming in for you.
Lots of abundance with this ace of pentacles. You have the side of the cups here. If you are moving towards love, 'boom' there you go judgment, wake up call exactly what I was talking about as if you are moving towards love.
You have the ten of swords such a strange love reading again. If you move towards love, I have a feeling that either this is someone who could re-judge that it is someone from the past, but it is As if Ten of Swordsis are saying something has to end here, Pisces. I always say I don't read myself ex feedback when you go back to an ex, it's like I've always said don don't go back to exs but you know I never want to control what you do anyway Pisces but I think if both people have worked on each other and both people get back into the relationship at their vibration rates then fine, you definitely know what I mean? Then it could actually work, but this is what it looks like here.
Again, wheel of fortune and judgment are the only two cards I look at for an ex to come back. So for some of you, there might be an ex coming back. For others I feel like there is a new love but this is where a wake up call happens and I feel like this is a bigger picture.
I almost feel what these Seven of Mugs could give you, something could give you too many ideas. I did the joint reading for February and for watermarks and there was definitely, I was talking about something in one of those collective readings about writing down your ideas, have a lot of ideas and it looks to me like one thing leads to another. As if you might be starting a business, I feel very excited and very excited about everything that's going on here, but I have a feeling that this emperor is asking you to be very disciplined and to write down your ideas at this time, Pisces because I just feel that you could have a lot of ideas and it's like, I get this energy from an ideal one to lead to another idea that leads to another I feel like things are in the This could result in loss of retrograde.
So I think you should write down your ideas, but this is very strange read. I kind of like it because I feel like it's you, I feel like you are bragging about here in a big way and I feel like you are in control. Again I feel like this week is just the one thing that is real to you, only if you do something, commit yourself to a billion percent, go right through like I said, I feel like when you stop if you hesitate, it will hurt you.
I feel like this is one of those readings where it's like a rational self-confidence. I feel like I'm not saying this, that you're going to be cocky, I'm not saying that you are making wrong decisions here, as if you need a bit of that irrational confidence and that makes it okay in my opinion high priestess. So if you want something, do it and be irrationally confident and you will simply succeed in your destiny.
Then Ace of Pentacles to the side of the cups, moving towards marriage. So this looks very good fish. So anyway, I hope this helps.
Thank you for looking at fish really appreciate it. Be sure to watch your sun, moon and rise for a full picture of what's going on for you this week, also like and appreciate any support, but thank you and definitely enjoy your week.
The February 14 zodiac people are on the Aquarius-Pisces Cusp. We refer to this as the Cusp of Sensitivity.
We talked about what happens when you die, a show that has proven very popular. We think it is only right that we now talk about how you came into this world. We don't know exactly how they came up with this number. but some scientists say the odds of you being born are one in four hundred quadrillion.
Yes, you are special and never forget that. At first, there was a chance your father would get together with your mother, and a scientist told BusinessInsider that the chance was one in twenty thousand. Then there is a chance they will stick together, get through the first date, then the second, and stay together until they decide they have you.
We're told we'll get to this point, the probability is one in forty million. Now comes the big probability, because your mother will be born with one to two million eggs (500 of which will ovulate) and your father will produce around 500 billion sperm, sperm hit an egg and made you is pretty amazing. We must also remember this, in order for your parents to exist, their ancestors also had to return to the dawn of mankind.
Your birth was nothing short of a miracle. So we know that a lot of things had to happen for you to exist. But let's just talk about the day or night that you started.
We are sure that you had enough education to know that your mother and father had to love each other in order to exist, in order to exist. Not many people like to think about it, but that's exactly what happened. You probably also know that every time people sleep without contraception, it doesn't mean a guaranteed pregnancy.
There are many factors including people's age as well as the timing of love and reproductive organs when people go to great lengths to have a child while other couples cannot miss it. A doctor from Women's College Hospital and St. Joseph's Health Center in Toronto said that women under 35 have an 85 percent chance of conceiving in a year by making love on each Menst cycle.
The average cycle lasts 28 days. The woman will ovulate after her period. Ovulation begins, on average, about 14 days after the first day of your last period.
In many cases, this part takes place about two weeks before the woman has her next period. The woman will produce an egg that will be released by the ovaries and that will be passed through the fallopian tubes where she can meet a sperm. This happy sperm can then fertilize the egg and voila, the process of having a baby is on its way.
To have a baby, you don't have to wait for ovulation and you may not know that a man's sperm inside a woman can wait for this egg cell to form. It is said that sperm can live for about 5 days in a woman, although most don't survive that long. Okay, so we know that a woman has to produce an egg and a sperm has to reach that egg and fertilize it.
But did you know that a man will produce roughly 525 billion sperm cells in his lifetime, something that led the late comedian Bill Hicks to say he had whole ci. wastes calumny by releasing sperm when you're not making love. Live Science tells us that a single shot can carry up to 40 million to 1.2 billion sperm cells.
Hmm, why on earth do we need so many of these things? The more sperm, the better the chance of getting to the egg, the highest sperm producers have a better chance of passing on their genes, and the distance the sperm has to travel to hit the magic egg is only 15 cm, but that's some of them just flow back after starting, while others are killed by acidic fluids inside the woman. These are basically not starters. But of the many millions that are launched, about two million make it to a base: the cervix.
Here some just run into walls and die, while others get trapped in mucus. It's quite a race for those sperm and always associated with dangers. However, about a million will make it to the second base: the uterus.
Unfortunately, many are reversed and blood cells taken out by whites. About 10,000 are now left and have made it to the top of the uterus. You then go to the fallopian tube, and women have two of them, but rarely make eggs in each.
That means about half of those expensive sperm pick the wrong door and nothing behind it. Those who have gone the right way must face the uterotubal junction, a place where the fallopian tube and uterus are connected. This busy transition is difficult for the sperm to get stuck in, and many get stuck in the mucus.
Of the millions we now have about 1,000 survivors en route to where the grand prize is kept in the fallopian tubes. Many don't make it to the egg and just die, one sad thing considering how far they have come, but it gets worse because there can only be one thing, in the words of the Highlander. Something happens called a cortical reaction, which is basically the woman's egg blocking multiple sperm, part of the world's toughest race but it is by no means complete as there is a risk of miscarriage.
This often happens early, and if a woman passes the 14 week mark, she has only one chance of losing the baby in the business you are on your way to giving birth. There are stages of pregnancy and we call these stages trimesters. The entire pregnancy should average about 40 weeks, but as you know, some babies are born prematurely.
From the 1st week to the 12th week we call the first trimester. During this time, the woman is likely to notice some changes, such as mood swings, swelling, nausea, cravings, or headaches, or heartburn, possibly. But what is happening? In the first few weeks you don't have much of yourself.
About a week after the sperm have won this race and hit the egg, the fertilized egg attaches to the uterine lining and now the placenta begins to form. Two weeks the embryo sees a bit like a disc on this wall, but only after about four weeks does this small embryo begin to sprout. The hearts will begin to form and small buds will develop where the legs and arms will be.
Eyes, nose, all begin to develop, as does the spine and digestive tract. By about 8 weeks we have something more human, which we call the fetus. The heart is now working properly and the fetus has all of the organs (not fully formed) that the baby-to-be will have.
Bones that are created now also begin to form. At 12 weeks we start to see a tiny human being, crammed with a bigger head, genitals, tooth buds, and even fingernails and toenails. The baby can now move around in the amniotic fluid.
This is the end of the first trimester. At the start of the second trimester, the baby will be about four inches long and weigh about an ounce. The head will stop growing so quickly and the eyelids will close as the eyes develop.
Nerves and muscles become active n and now that little fetus can even make a fist. Because the fetus is now larger, many women now have a noticeable bump. You may also feel a little better and not have terrible feelings of nausea, lots of new ailments and pains.
Under the hood, the baby's skeleton continues to develop at 16 weeks. The skin looks white, almost transparent. The fetus may have a bowel movement at this point, but it will be something called a meconium.
This is a dark green substance that is quite a bit of feces. The fetus is now about 10 to 10 inches long and weighs about 3 ounces. At twenty weeks the little bundle of joy could get restless, and then the woman could begin to feel like baby is kicking.
Many parts of the body are now fully formed, such as fingernails and toenails. We are told that at this point it can even start scratching itself. It can also swallow and hear things and make its own blood cells from bone marrow.
It's fingerprinted now. It can taste when taste buds form on the tongue and it will even get a bit of hair. The lungs are not yet properly developed, but this process is on its way.
Whether boy or girl, the fetus will now begin to develop its own reproductive organs. Another thing that starts now is a normal sleep cycle. At this point, he's about 12 inches long and could weigh about 1.5 pounds.
Welcome to the third trimester, when the woman is carrying a lot of extra weight. Sometimes there will be discomfort and that is just the body reacting to another thing growing in it. At 32 weeks we have almost the finished package.
The baby's bones are not yet fully developed, but they get there. It can now open and close its eyes. The lungs are not yet fully formed, but the baby will be practicing breathing by this time.
At this point the baby is also storing all the natural minerals that it needs to be healthy. Right now it could be up to 16 inches long. It can weigh around 4 pounds or more.
At week 36, something called vernix thickens around the baby. This is a waxy coating that will protect the baby. It now stores quite a bit of body fat and that means less room to move around.
The woman will feel less of these kicks. Usually we have a fetus that is now about 18 inches long and weighs about six pounds. After this point we have the right thing to do, which means that the fetus has organs that are fully developed for the outside world as it approaches birth, the baby may be head first.
It is only a matter of time before it comes out and takes its first breaths into the world. When it happens it can weigh around 6-9 pounds, but that can. Its length can be around 20 inches, but that can change too.
What happens then? Well, in the first few moments after it comes out, people around can cleanse the baby and assess its health. The nose and throat will be cleared very gently. The umbilical cord is clamped in two places and then cut.
In case you didn't know, this cord connects the baby to the woman's uterus. It takes oxygen and nutrients from the placenta to the baby. Anyway, after cutting it leaves behind a stump.
This will be dry and easy to settle. In about 7 days or more the belly button should be completely healed. What else happens right after birth? Well the baby will likely have an antibiotic ointment rubbed on the eyes to stop an infection It also receives a vitamin K injection to help blood clot.
As I said, the doctors will check that the baby is in good health, but another important thing is to make sure the temperature is right. If everything is okay, you can have a sponge bath after a few hours then you will probably wear a little hat to keep your head warm and get the first taste of breast milk over time. Baby and mother can usually go home in 24 to 48 hours, but more tests may need to be done to go back to the hospital in about a week just for a check-up and we are all fortunate enough to be alive.
