YES this is a BABY – Not a Fetus
Call a Baby what you may, BUT, these images will never leave your mind.
"My Humble Opinion

Weeks - One Through Four


• Ovulation occurs - The time is right; now you just need this egg to be fertilized!
• Conception occurs - Did you know that during your pregnancy that your uterus will increase its capacity by 1000 times?!
• Gender is determined - Immediately upon fertilization your little one is set as a boy or a girl. Ladies, this is one that you can't take credit for since it is up to the sperm to determine the sex of your baby. Sperm carries either a "X" (girl) chromosome or a "Y" (boy) chromosome. (*Hint:* You will have to hold off on picking out the pink or blue until at least the second trimester when the gender will be visible via ultrasound.)
• Implantation - Some spotting (also known as implantation bleeding) may occur about 10 - 14 days after conception. You may believe you are starting your period but generally this bleeding is extremely light and lasts only a day or so.
• Neural tube forms - It will develop into the nervous system (Brain, spinal cord, hair, and skin). Already your baby has the foundation for thought, senses, feeling, and more!
• Heart and primitive circulatory system rapidly form - While still in its beginning stages, this is the very life support system that will carry your child throughout his or her life.

1st Week of Pregnancy From Conception

After the fertilization, the cell begins to divide.  It takes about 4 days for the impregnated egg to reach the uterus.
At present, your baby is what is known as a blastocyte (or Blastula), a mass of about 100 cells.  The external part of this
blastocyte will become the placenta.  The internal part will become the embryo.

2nd Week of Pregnancy From Conception
Baby's Development:

The embryo is now composed of about 150 cells.  They are divided in three layers that will each develop in an independent manner.

The internal layer is called the endoderm (or endoblast).  This will become the respiratory and digestive system as well as certain glands including the liver, pancreas, thyroid and thymus.

The middle layer (the mesoderm) will be busy!  It will become bones and cartilage, the circulatory system (heart & blood vessels), the inner skin layer (dermis), muscles, excretory system, loins & genitalia and also the outer covering of the internal organs.

The outer layer (ectoderm or ectoblast) will provide the brain & nervous system along with the epidermis (skin, hair, nails).

During this second week, the embryo floats freely in the uterus and survives thanks to the secretions of the uterine lining.

3rd Week of Pregnancy From Conception

Baby's Development:

At the end of the third week, the embryo is well fixed in the wall of the uterus.  Your future baby is no longer a fertilized egg, it has become an embryo.

The brain and the backbone begin to form.

The external covering changes also and begins to start the process of creating the placenta and the amniotic cavity (which will surround the placenta).

The heart is still being formed, but it already beats!

4th Week of Pregnancy From Conception
Baby's Development:

At the end of the first month, the embryo looks like a small prehistoric creature (or something out of 'Alien').  

Little buds that will become the arms appear on the 26th day.  At the 28th day, buds appear that will become the legs.

On average, the baby is about 3mm from coccyx to the tip of the head (the size of a large grain of rice).  In fact, on the 21st day the embryo is 1.5mm and by the 28th day it will be 5mm.

Baby's Profile:        Size:       -  5 mm

5th Week of Pregnancy From Conception

• First heartbeats begin - If you have an early ultrasound you may not be able to recognize this tiny being as a baby, but there is no mistaking what it feels like seeing your child's heartbeat on that screen. That rhythmic beat is echoed in your own heart.

• Umbilical cord develops - This is your baby's lifeline in utero. It bears the responsibility of pumping in oxygen, removing waste, and supplying the necessary nutrients for the remainder of your pregnancy.

• Blood is now pumping - All four heart chambers are now functioning, insuring your baby's body will receive all it needs over not only the remainder of your pregnancy but throughout life.

• Most other organs begin to develop - Your infant's lungs start to appear, along with her brain. Already your little one is preparing for a quest for lifelong learning!

• Arm and leg buds appear - While they may not appear to be much at this stage it is ok to dream of the future. Just imagine your ballerina twirling and jumping around your kitchen floor. Or perhaps you will have the precocious boy that throws the perfect pitch -- right through the neighbor's window.

6th Week of Pregnancy From Conception

The arms and legs continue to develop - These limbs are stretching out more and more. Later on you will be feeling those feet and elbows up close and personal right in your bladder!

·        Brain is growing well - Did you know that over the course of the remaining months that your baby's brain will develop over 100 billion neurons? This is just the beginning!

·        Lenses of the eyes appear - If you could catch a glimpse inside, you would notice your baby's appearance becoming increasing like a newborn's.

·        Nostrils are formed - The position of the nose seems to shift into its proper place as well. Soon, the nerves running from the nose to the brain appear.

·        Intestines grow - Initially these are actually located outside the baby's body within the umbilical cord.

·        Pancreas - Your baby is now equipped to deal with digestive enzymes and take on processing the insulin and glucagons the body needs to function.

7th Week of Pregnancy From Conception


·        Elbows form - Again, taking a peek inside you could see your baby's fascination with bending and flexing. Later you will swear you can enlist your child as the star of the next "Karate Kid" movie!

·        Fingers start to develop - These digits often become your baby's first toy!

·        Feet start to appear with tiny notches for the toes - It is fascinating that at less than a half inch, your little guy (or gal) already is leaving "footprints" on your heart!

·        Ears eyes and nose start to appear - Although they may resemble an alien life form, these all "shift" soon enough into a more normal appearance.

·        Intestines start to form in the umbilical cord - Did you know that initially the intestines are not formed inside your baby's body?

·        Teeth begin to develop under the gums - Thankfully, right now you won't be dealing with teething pain!

8th Week of Pregnancy From Conception


·        Cartilage and bones begin to form - At the end of this week your baby will have already completed 1/5th of the journey 'til his birthday!

·        The basic structure of the eye is well underway - The position is more "newborn" like already!

·        The tongue begins to develop

·        Intestines move out of the umbilical cord into the abdomen.

·        Body grows and makes room - Two months along and this little one is growing inside and out by leaps and bounds!

·        The fingers and toes have appeared but are webbed and short

·        Baby's length (crown to rump) is 0.61 inch (1.6cm) and weight is 0.04 ounce (1gm)

9th Week of Pregnancy From Conception

Baby has begun movement - While still too small for you to feel, your little one is wriggling, shifting, and dancing already! Makes you almost wish for a window to peek in whenever you want!

·        Most joints are formed now - and trust that your little one is practicing bending and flexing.

·        Fetus will curve its fingers around an object placed in the palm of its hand - This is amazing to see! At only nine weeks, if you happen to have an ultrasound, you may observe your infant fascinated by everything he or she can lay their fingers on (mainly other fingers, toes, ears and nose!

·        Fingerprints are already evident in the skin

·        Average size this week -- length 0.9 inch (2.3cm), weight 0.07 ounce (2gm)

10th Week of Pregnancy From Conception

Baby is now called a fetus in "medical terms". You, however, may have chosen the name "peanut," "angel," "jumping bean" or simply "miracle."

·        The most critical part of your infant's development is complete. Now you are headed into a period of rapid growth.

·        While a bit strange to envision, your baby's head is now about half its length - Soon the rest of the body's growth will catch up but this area is prepared to keep up with the rapid brain development!

·        Eyelids fuse shut and irises begin to develop - Eye color is also determined by this point.

·        Placenta begins to function this week or next - The placenta is the organ responsible for both the provision of nutrients along with the removal of waste to keep your baby growing strong!

·        Your baby will be about 1.22 inch long (3.1cm) and weigh 0.14 ounce (4gm) at the end of this week

11th Week of Pregnancy From Conception

Nearly all structures and organs are formed and beginning to function.

·        Fingers and toes have separated - Take a glimpse at how incredibly precious your child's tiny feet are at this point.

·        Hair and nails begin to grow

·        The genitals begin to take on the proper gender characteristics - It will be just a few more weeks before your ultrasound can show if you are having a boy or a girl! Have you been dreaming of pink or blue?

·        Amniotic fluid begins to accumulate as the kidneys begin to function - This fluid, consisting primarily of water, helps provide a cushion for your baby while she's nestled within your womb.

·        The muscles in the intestinal walls begin to practice contractions that digest food.

·        Your baby is about 1.61 inches (4.1 cm) long and weighs 0.25 ounce (7gm).

12th Week of Pregnancy From Conception

Vocal cords begin to form - While perhaps not quite ready to be introduced to the nearest opera stage, your infant will use these immediately following the moment of birth. Bet you can't wait to hear that first cry!

·        Those precious eyes begin to move closer together - Are you wondering if he will have mommy's crystal green eyes, daddy's laughing brown ones, or maybe out of the gene pool will emerge grandma's clear blue!

·        Ears shift to their normal place on the side of the head

·        Intestines move farther in to your child's body

·        His or her liver begins to function - Responsible for cleansing the blood, storing nutrients, and providing needed chemicals, this is an important event!

·        The pancreas begins to produce insulin

·        Guess what? Your baby's average size is now at a whopping length: 2.13 inches (5.4cm) and weight: 0.49 ounce (14gm)

13th Week of Pregnancy From Conception

Your infant is about 2.91 inches (7.4cm) and weighs around 0.81 ounce (23gm) - This is about the same weight as 4 quarters.

·        If you could peek in again you may spot your baby as he begins to practice inhaling and exhaling movements

·        Eyes and ears continue to move and develop

·        Baby's neck is getting longer, and the chin no longer is resting on his chest

·        Her hands are becoming more functional - Your baby may find it comforting to start playing with her fist.

·        At this point all nourishment is received from the placenta

·        On your next doctor visit you should be able to hear heartbeat with a Doppler by now - (Don't worry though if you can't, the heartbeat can be confirmed through U/S). Your baby's heartbeat is much rapider than your own and may remind you of the race towards birth that he is running!

14th Week of Pregnancy From Conception

Thyroid gland has matured and your baby begins producing hormones which will be used throughout his or her life.

·        In boys, the prostate gland develops

·        In girls, the ovaries move from the abdomen to the pelvis

·        Your little one may have learned to suck his thumb by this point!

·        Your child's bones are getting harder and stronger by the day!

·        Your baby's skin is very transparent still

·        Lanugo (very fine hair) covers the baby's body and will continue to grow until 26 weeks gestational age - Generally this will be shed prior to birth. Its purpose is to help protect baby's skin while in all that water!

·        Your baby is 3.42 inches (8.7cm) long and weighs about 1.52 ounces (43 grams) - approximately the weight of a letter!

15th Week of Pregnancy From Conception

You may begin to feel some fluttering movements as baby kicks, flails, twists and turns (but don't panic if you don't yet). She can also grasp, squint, frown, grimace and maybe suck her thumb!

·        Your baby's legs have grown longer than the arms and the body is now longer than the head.

·        And you'll be happy to note that he is moving those arms and legs often!

·        His skin is very thin -- so thin blood vessel are visible. It's covered by a fine, soft layer of hair called lanugo. Lanugo comes from a Latin word meaning "down." This hair is thought to help insulate your little boy.

·        The three tiny bones in his middle ear have begun to harden. The auditory centers in your baby's brain haven't developed yet, so she might not really understand what you say but her hearing capacity is in the process of developing.

·        Fingernails and toenails are growing.

·        Eyebrows are beginning to grow and even the hair his head is sprouting. It will probably change color and texture after birth.

·        All this and your little one is an amazing 3.98 inches (10.1cm) long and may weigh 2.47 ounces (70gm).

16th Week of Pregnancy From Conception

Fat begins to form underneath skin, providing your baby with insulation for the coming months.

·        Did you know that both baby and placenta are now about the same size?

·        Your little one has reached 4.57 inches (11.6cm) and approximately 3.53 ounces (100gm).

·        His head and neck are held straighter now.

·        This is a week of "mights!" You might hear the tiny thumps of his heartbeat with an external monitor now. The genitals are developed sufficiently that an experienced sonographer might be able to determine if your baby is a boy or a girl.

·        Her heart is pumping as much as 6 gallons of blood a day and beats at a rate about double your heart rate.

·        If you could take a peek inside, you would witness your child's reflexes in action! (Sucking, swallowing and blinking are now evident.) She is probably even hiccuping even though you don't feel it yet!

·        Your baby has learned to breathe! This is apparent from the regular movements of his chest. Isn't it amazing that he is able to breathe "underwater," inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid? These actions help the lungs to develop and grow.

17th Week of Pregnancy From Conception

By week 17, your baby weighs about 4.97 ounces (140gm) and is 5.12 inches (13cm) long.

·        He or she has a much more normal "human" appearance now. She holds her head more erect and her body and limbs are longer in proportion to her head.

·        Pads are forming on his tiny fingertips and toes. Soon those individual swirls and whorls will be apparent.

·        Her eyes are looking forward now, but they are still firmly closed.

·        Meconium (composed of products of cell loss, digestive secretion and swallowed amniotic fluid), is accumulating in the bowel. This black gooey substance will become your baby's first poop!

·        The umbilical cord is growing thicker and stronger and continues to rush blood and nutrients to your growing baby.

·        If your child is male the prostate begins to develop.

·        Her skeleton is transforming from cartilage to bone. The bones remain flexible to make the journey through the birth canal easier.

18th Week of Pregnancy From Conception

Vernix (a white cheese-like protective material) forms on baby's skin with the lanugo (soft, lightly pigmented hair covering the body and limbs); both serving to protect your baby's skin during the months in water.

·        Your placenta continues to grow and nourish the baby. Don't forget those prenatal vitamins!

·        Tiny air sacs called alveoli begin to form in lungs. He'll be putting these lungs to good use in just a few months!

·        Her vocal chords are formed. She goes through the motions of crying but without air she doesn't make a sound.

·        Features of your baby's heart, including ventricles and chambers, should be visible during an ultrasound.

·        Your baby measures about 5.59 inches (14.2cm) this week and weighs about 6.7 ounces (190gm).

19th Week of Pregnancy From Conception

Your baby has the same awake and sleep patterns of a newborn. He has a favorite position for sleep and recognizable active and rest periods.

·        Throughout baby's body, nerves are being coated with a fatty substance called myelin, which insulates the nerves so that impulses can flow smoothly.

·        Scalp hair becomes apparent this week. It has sprouted and continues to grow.

·        The milk teeth buds have already developed and over the next few days the buds for the permanent teeth will begin to form behind the milk teeth.

·        If baby is female the uterus starts to develop. If you're having a girl, the vagina, uterus, and fallopian tubes are in place.

·        If it's a boy, the genitals are distinct and recognizable.

·        Your baby is swallowing amniotic fluid and his or her kidneys are making urine.

·        Your little one's size is around 6.02 inches (15.3cm) and 8.47 ounces (240gm).

20th Week of Pregnancy From Conception

You're half way there!

·        The rapid growth stage is about over. While things have slowed down, this next stage is vital to survival.

·        The baby's heart grows stronger. Find a quiet place, lay flat on your back. Locate your own heartbeat by finding your pulse. Next lay your hand on your belly. You may be able to distinguish the two heartbeats!

·        His legs are reaching their relative size. With the increase muscle develop occurring as well, you will start feeling much more than tiny flutter kicks soon!

·        Immunities are being transferred from you to your baby now. These immune cells will protect her from viruses you've already had for up to six months after birth!

·        The nerve cells for taste, smell, hearing, seeing, and touch are now developing in specialized areas of the brain. Production slows down as existing nerve cells grow larger and make more complex connections.

·        Your baby may startle in reaction to loud sounds. Amazingly, she can actually hear noises outside of the womb. Familiar voices, music, and sounds that baby becomes accustomed to during her development stages often are calming after birth.

·        If your baby is a girl, her uterus is starting to develop. She has approximately six million eggs in her ovaries. About one million will remain at birth.

·        Baby is about 6.46 inches (16.4cm) and weighs around 10.58 ounces (300g).

21st Week of Pregnancy From Conception

White blood cells are under production. Leukocytes (or white blood cells) form our body's defense system. They help fight infections and diseases.

·        Your little one's skin has changed from translucent to become more opaque.

·        Your infant's tongue is fully formed. If you were able to peek you might catch your son or daughter practicing giving you a raspberry!

·        If your baby is a girl, her womb and vagina are formed. Unlike males, females have a limited supply of eggs in their lifetime. At this point your daughter will have 6 million eggs. This amount decreases to approximately one million by birth.

·        Baby swallows more this week. After your baby takes in amniotic fluid, his body absorbs the water in the liquid and moves the rest into the large bowel. This is good practice for his digestive system!

·        Wake and sleep periods become more consistent. Some research suggests that baby sets her internal clock to match the outside world's even before birth! Your eating and sleeping habits as well levels of light and noise serve as her signals.

·        Length is now measured crown to heel.

·        Baby measures about 10.51 inches (26.7cm) and weighs nearly 12.7 ounces (360g).
