When a baby is in its mother's womb, how do the lungs breathe?

Placenta supplies O2: The lungs don't breath when the baby is in the womb. Oxygen is supplied to the baby through diffusion from the oxygen in the mother's blood to the fetal blood across the placenta. The oxygen then circulates in the fetal circulations. Carbon dioxide diffuses from the fetal circulation back to the mother's blood and the carbon dioxide is then exhaled via the mother's lungs. ...Read more

For pregnant lady, is it normal if the baby inside a mother's womb, frequently kick mother's belly last few days but today there's no kicking at all at this has been happening for almost 2 days. Should I be worried?

Probably: Very early in pregnancy movements may vary. However, later on, especially in the third trimester movements should occur daily. In the last few weeks of pregnancy i recommend kick counts (6-10 movements the hour after you eat). In your case since i don't know her gestational age, have her call her OB today and see if some fetal monitoring is needed or nonstress test needed. Don't delay. ...Read more
