i’m quite excited about today’s fact for a couple of reasons 😁
firstly, it’s interesting 😂 but secondly, the info is super new … which is cool! 😎
#tdil the reasons why babies kick whilst they’re in the womb 👶🏻
seeing a baby kicking whilst inside someone is super weird and like something out of alien 👽 (there, i said it 😅) but have you ever wondered why it happens? 🤔
i have … and some recent research at imperial college london may finally have the answer! which is darn good timing 😏
it turns out that kicking is a fundamental part of the foetus’ skeletal and joint development 😊
it starts at 10 weeks when the foetus begins to bend its head and neck 👤 after that – at about 15 weeks – the foetus starts doing a full range of movements … such as limb movements, breathing and stretching 👍🏻
at 16 weeks, the mother-to-be generally starts feeling all of this movement (which must feel strange!) … from here the foetus tends to start moving around more and more.
as well as this, the researchers also found that the intensity and strength of the kicks gets more powerful 💪🏻.
but yeah, the general consensus is that the kicks are vital to the foetus developing strong joints and bones 😁
wondering how the clever peeps figured all of this out? well, they created computer models of baby movement by using mri scans 😊
i’ve enjoyed this fact today! 😊 now, i’m in no way a doctor/midwife/paediatrician, so please don’t just take my word for it! you can find the original study ->here<-
that’s us done for today! have a good evening beautiful people 😘
bye! 😜 #tdil
