The most severe cases are missed miscarriages, while less severe cases may continue but may lead to pathologies such as pre-eclampsia and intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) [13,17]. It becomes more and more clear that in preeclampsia increased oxidative stress is evident; and recent data point to hyperoxic changes or to the occurrence of ﬂuctuating oxygen concentrations [23,30]. Fetal membranes [1,2,33–35] Fluid accumulation within the amnionic cavity, that is, between embryo and chorionic sac leads to a complete separation of embryo and surrounding extraembryonic tissues, only leaving the developing umbilical cord as the connection between placenta and embryo.
The pancreas The size of the islets of Langerhans and the number of β-cells increase during pregnancy, as does the number of receptor sites for insulin. The functions of the pancreas in pregnancy were considered above. Conclusion This chapter attempts to outline the physiology of normal pregnancy. The changes mostly begin very early indeed, and it may be that two of the major problems of pregnancy, intrauterine growth retardation and pre-eclampsia, are initiated even before the woman knows that she is pregnant.
This increased sensitivity stimulates glycogen synthesis and storage, deposition of fat and transport of amino acids into cells. The uptake of amino acids by the mother for gluconeogenesis may also be enhanced. After mid-pregnancy, resistance to the action of insulin develops progressively and plasma glucose concentrations rise, though remaining below non-pregnant levels (Fig. 7). Glucose crosses the placenta readily and the fetus uses glucose as its primary energy substrate, so this rise is presumably beneﬁcial to the fetus.
