Chapter 3 – Independent Questions I. Conception A. The Process of Conception – (optional reading – not on the midterm) II. Pregnancy and Prenatal Development A. The Mother’s Experience 1. The mother’s experience of pregnancy is divided into 3 trimesters: (a) first trimester 0-12 weeks, (b) second trimester 13-24 weeks, (c) third trimester 25-38 weeks. Summarize the information in the text under each trimester to identify the main events, discomforts and serious problems that may occur. Include the information under the columns titled “events” and “discomforts” in Table 3.1 in your notes. B. Prenatal Development 2. There are 2 patterns of physical growth in the developing fetus: cephalocaudal and proximodistal patterns. Define each of these patterns of physical development. 3. There are 3 stages of prenatal development, which are defined by specific developmental milestones. Unlike the mother’s experience, the three stages of prenatal development are not equal in length. The first two weeks are referred to as the germinal stage; weeks three to eight are referred to as the embryonic stage; weeks eight to thirty-eight are referred to as the fetal stage. Identify the developmental milestones in each of the three stages, which are summarized in Table 3.2. Next, familiarize yourself with the italicized and bold words in the text under each stage to add further details to your notes for each stage of prenatal development. C.
