Formation process

Do you know that, from 16th day, the embryo has two blood vessels to form heart's vessels. Although this time the shape of the fetal heart has not been formed yet, but it also beats due to contractile activity, it does the function of a real heart. By the end of the first month, the embryo is 1 cm longer, fetal heart also goes into more complete process even though the fetus has not had five organs and limbs.

To the fifth week of the pregnancy (counting from the time of conception, your baby is 3 weeks old), the length of the embryo is only about 1.25 mm. The embryo has formed a lot of cells. At the end of this 5th week, the embryo begins to have shape, the nerves run along the length of the embryo. This part will form the baby's spine and brain in future. The upper part of the nerves begins to straighten out and it will form the front part of the brain. A small bead in the middle of the embryo will develop into your child's heart.

By using the modern ultrasound equipment, sometimes we can hear the baby's heartbeat at 6th week of pregnancy.

 Development process

In the 7th week, the heart grows in fetal body and begins to divide into two parts of the heart: left and right. The fetal heart starts beating and completes faster when the fetus is at 11th week of pregnancy.

Five weeks after that, that is about 12th weeks, your baby's fetal heart is almost complete. In the 14th week of pregnancy, fetal heart beats more clearly.

After next week, that is, at around 12 weeks, your baby's fetal heart almost complete. At the 14th week of pregnancy, fetal heart beats more clearly.

Especially at the 16th week of pregnancy, the fetal heart can pump blood with the amount of about 24 liters/day and this number will continue to grow along with your baby's development. At that time, the heart is complete in structure and can undertake its functions.

From the following weeks of pregnancy until giving birth, the fetal heart continues to grow in size and volume. Normal fetal heart beats between 120-160 beats/minute. However, when the baby moves, the heart may beat at the speed of 180 beats/minute, but it is still in normal state. According to a survey of scientists, female fetal heart will beat faster than male fetal heart.
