Anencepahlic babies can cry as well as eat and breathe but they cannot speak or think or know.

And in biological terms an anencephailc baby is a living organism but not a live human being.

The longest a baby has lived with anencephaly is 28 months although some babies may die during birth or in the womb.

A baby cannot live in the womb without a brain as it's fatal condition and most babies who have no brain in the womb will die before birth and the pregnancy will end with a miscarriage.

When a baby has no brain it's called Anencephaly which is a fatal condition.

The amount of babies that are born without a brain or parts of their brain are 1 in every 4,600 babies.

When a baby is born without a brain or parts of it's brain it's called Anencephaly which is a serious birth defect in which a baby is born without parts of their brain and skull and it's a type of neural tube defect.

You can be born with half a brain although it's a rare birth defect.

When you're born with half a brain it's called Anencephaly which is a serious birth defect in which a baby is born without parts of their brain and skull and it's a type of neural tube defect.

The longest time a woman has been pregnant was 375 days which is a bit over a year.

Most normal pregnancy times are 9 months.

If a baby poops in the mothers womb during labor and during the birthing process the baby could develop a serious and dangerous lung condition which is called meconium aspiration.

Babies cannot and do not fart in the womb because they don't ingest air in the womb.

However once a baby is out of the womb then they can fart.

A single drop of sperm can cause pregnancy if that sperm reaches the egg and fertilizes the egg.

You can get pregnant if you put sperm inside your vagina and the sperm gets far enough into your vagina.

Some people artificially inseminate at home by using a turkey baster or artificial insemination kt to get pregnant which inserts sperm into the woman's vagina.

Fruit that is good for pregnancy are citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons which are full of vitamin C which helps the baby's bones grow properly and also help with your digestion and also deter any morning sickness during pregnancy.

Fruits that cannot be eaten during pregnancy are grapes, pineapples and Papaya.

However grapes are considered safe during pregnancy as long as you don't eat too many of them.

You can eat grapes while pregnant but you should not eat too many of the grapes as they can cause complications with pregnancy.

Grapes are not good during pregnancy due to the fact that grapes contain resveratrol which is a toxic compound that could cause poisoning or other pregnancy complications.

Drinks you should avoid while pregnant are sugary and diet sodas, caffeine such as coffee, alcohol, unpasteurized juices, unpasteurized milk.

Foods that should not be eaten during your first trimester of pregnancy include raw or undercooked seafood and meat.

You should also avoid eating Unpasteurized cheeses or other shellfish during your first trimester of pregnancy.

During pregnancy you should also avoid.

Soft Cheese. Soft cheese is made from unpasteurized milk and contains bacteria that can cause food poisoning.

Packaged and Processed Foods.
Raw/Undercooked Eggs and Meats.
Alcoholic Beverages.

When your belly gets hard during pregnancy it's most often caused by excessive stretching of your abdominal muscles which generally happens around weeks 7 and 8 of the pregnancy, and it is normal for the lower abdomen to appear more swollen and harder than when you were not pregnancy.

When a fetus dies inside you it's known as a miscarriage and most often your doctor will give you some medicine that helps induce labor to help expel the dead fetus from your body.

Or surgery may be performed to remove the dead fetus.

It is possible to sometimes miscarry and still be pregnant.

The symptoms of miscarriage are usually vaginal bleeding and lower tummy pain.

It is important to see your doctor or go to the emergency room if you have signs of a miscarriage.

The most common sign of a miscarriage is vaginal bleeding, which can vary from light red or brown spotting to heavy bleeding.

Miscarriage is the spontaneous loss of a pregnancy before the 20th week. About 10 to 20 percent of known pregnancies end in miscarriage.

But the actual number is likely higher because many miscarriages occur very early in pregnancy before you might even know about a pregnancy.

It's thought most miscarriages are caused by abnormal chromosomes in the baby.

Chromosomes are genetic "building blocks" that guide the development of a baby.

If a baby has too many or not enough chromosomes, it will not develop properly.

During a miscarriage, an embryo or fetus is spontaneously expelled from the uterus but can't yet live in the outside world.

After 20 weeks, the loss of a fetus is called a stillbirth instead of a miscarriage.

Vaginal Bleeding is the most common sign of a miscarriage along with other signs which include.

Cramping and pain in your lower tummy.
A discharge of fluid from your vagina.
A discharge of tissue from your vagina.
And no longer experiencing the symptoms of pregnancy, such as feeling sick and breast tenderness.

Yes a fetus can die inside the womb and not be a miscarriage.

When a fetus does die in the womb suddenly without you knowing it the term for the baby dying in the womb without knowing it is called intra-uterine fetal death.

So it can also be considered miscarriage when the baby dies in your womb but does not discharge from the women's uterus.

However the baby can die before it develops fully and not discharge but not miscarry.

It's rare that a baby dies in the womb and doesn't develop fully but it can and does happen from time to time.

But when you do miscarry a baby you're usually more fertile and can easily get pregnant again afterwards.
