About us

We are a team of gynaecologists who have been working together since our training stage. We started our working life together in hospital medicine. Pioneers in gynaecological laparoscopic surgery in our country, we grew professionally at the same time as we created the International School of Gynaecological Endoscopy (www.eideg.com).
At this moment of professional maturity we have decided to undertake a new and stimulating project by creating GinnovaBarcelona.

Pregnancy calendar

Look at the changes that will occur week by week during pregnancy.

  • 6

    6th week

    First visit of pregnancy, the embryo is like a lentil, it measures about 5 mm but we can already hear its heart beating.

    Congratulations! You have a positive pregnancy test and you may start to notice breast tension, be more tired or have some nausea.

    We will make the first pregnancy visit between the 6th and 8th week. At this visit we will assess your health by means of your medical history, an examination and an ultrasound scan to confirm the pregnancy and the estimated due date. We will give you recommendations for the proper development of your pregnancy and inform you about the visits and tests to be carried out during your pregnancy. We will request your first blood test.

  • 12

    12th week

    The foetus’s size is like a plum, measures about 6 cm and we can clearly identify its anatomy by ultrasound scan.

    The foetus can open and close its mouth and move around a lot even though you can't feel it yet, and it already has human form. Its heart beats at approximately 150 beats per minute. Nausea and vomiting, if present, begin to improve.

    At the 12th week visit, in addition to the examination of each visit, we will carry out the first trimester ultrasound scan, one of the most important of the whole pregnancy. It will help us to assess the anatomy of the foetus and measure a series of parameters that will help us to determine the risk of Down's Syndrome or other chromosomal alterations. Together with the information from the first trimester blood test it is also time to carry out the Non-Invasive Prenatal Test or a chorionic biopsy if necessary.

  • 16

    16th week

    The foetus’s size is like an avocado, already about 15 cm long, its genitalia are differentiated enough to distinguish its sex by ultrasound scan.

    It starts to make suction movements and can open and close its hands. You're past the first trimester, the period of increased risk of miscarriage is behind you, the uterus is getting bigger and you can feel your tummy swelling. If you've had typical first trimester symptoms, they've probably gone away and you're starting to feel better and more energetic.

    In this visit we continue evaluating your general condition, and according to the results of the first trimester blood test and the Non-Invasive Prenatal Test, an amniocentesis could be carried out if necessary.

First quarter

0.4kg - 2.0kg
  • 20

    20th week

    The foetus’s size is like a banana, measures about 23 cm, all its organs are formed, and you can start to notice its movements.

    LThe uterus reaches the height of the navel and the belly is already more visible. All its organs are already formed and it is increasingly active.

    In this visit, in addition to the routine pregnancy examination, a morphological ultrasound scan is performed, the most important of the entire gestation, to rule out visible malformations, as we will carry out a detailed study of all the organs, placenta and amniotic fluid.

  • 24

    24th week

    The foetus’s size is like a French melon, measures about 30 cm and is already beginning to react to stimuli such as noise or light, even to flavours. Its movements can be clearly noticed from the outside.

    The foetus sleeps for many hours, but you notice it more and more. Its muscles, skin and lungs are developing. You may start to notice back pain.

    At this visit we will request your second trimester blood test, which among other things, includes the sugar test, Glucose Challenge test, aimed at detecting the risk of diabetes during pregnancy. If this is altered, an oral glucose tolerance test should be carried out to diagnose Gestational Diabetes.

  • 28

    28th week

    The foetus’s size is like an aubergine, measures about 37 cm and weighs about one kilo. It begins the process of lung maturity and its immune system, and occasionally presents hiccups.

    The foetus accumulates more and more fat and becomes more rounded, the brain grows and can open and close its eyes. By the end of the second trimester of pregnancy, your belly is getting bigger and bigger. You notice its movements more vigorously and you may start to feel heartburn or have sleeping difficulties.

Second quarter

2.0kg - 8.0kg
  • 32

    32th week

    The foetus’s size is like a pumpkin, measures about 43 cm and weighs about 1800 g, usually already placed with its head in the maternal pelvis. Occasional contractions are beginning to be felt.

    The future newborn grows very quickly, and the maturity of its lungs advances. It's normal for your tummy to get hard from time to time, these are Braxton-Hicks contractions, you may be more tired and your ankles may start to swell if you're standing.

    In this visit we will perform an ultrasound scan to determine the position of the foetus, and estimate its weight, rule out alterations that may appear at this time and assess the placenta and amniotic fluid. We will also request a third trimester blood test.

  • 36

    36th week

    The foetus’s size is like a melon, measures about 46 cm and weighs about 2600 g, and is almost ready to be born without problems.

    The future newborn continues to gain weight, has less and less room to move and its movements are visible. You'll have gained about 12 kg and you may find difficult breathing deeply because of the volume of your abdomen and the pressure of the foetal head on your pelvis may be uncomfortable.

    In this visit, in addition to the routine examinations of each visit, a vaginal and rectal sample are taken, to rule out the presence of Beta Agalactiae Streptococcus. Between this visit and the estimated due date, we will begin to carry out a more intensive follow-up with cardiotocographic records to assess the well-being of the foetus.

  • 40

    40th week

    The foetus’s size is like a watermelon, measures about 50 cm and weighs between 3 and 4 kg, can be born at any time.

    The future newborn is fully developed and the bones of its head are slightly separated so that they can adapt to the birth canal. Your body prepares for the moment of birth. You may find it hard to sleep and you feel increasingly tired.

    Although 40th week is considered the end of the pregnancy, sometimes labor is delayed and we'll continue to check until the 41 or 42 weeks of gestation, when if the baby hasn't born spontaneously we'll have to induce labor.

Third quarter

8.0kg - 13.6kg
