One month

Two months

Your baby is now about the size of a kidney
bean and is constantly moving. He has
distinct, slightly webbed fingers.

Three months

By now your baby is about 3 inches long and
weighs nearly an ounce. Her tiny, unique
fingerprints are now in place.

Four months

Your baby is now about 5 inches long and
weighs 5 ounces. His skeleton is starting to
harden from rubbery cartilage to bone.

Five months

Eyebrows and eyelids are now in place.
Your baby would now be more than 10
inches long if you stretched out her legs.

Six months

Your baby weighs about a pound and a
half. His wrinkled skin is starting to
smooth out as he puts on baby fat.

Seven months

By now, your baby weighs about 3 pounds
and is more than 15 inches long. She can
open and close her eyes and follow a light.

Eight months

Your baby now weighs about 4 3/4 pounds. His
layers of fat are filling him out, making him
rounder, and his lungs are well developed.

Nine months

The average baby is more than 19 inches long and
weighs nearly 7 pounds now, but babies vary widely in
size at this stage

The fifth week of pregnancy, or
the third week after
conception, marks the
beginning of the embryonic
period. This is when the baby's
brain, spinal cord, heart and
other organs begin to form.

Growth is rapid this week. Just
four weeks after conception, the
neural tube along your baby's back
is closing and your baby's heart is
pumping blood.
Basic facial features will begin to
appear, Your baby's body begins
to take on a c-shaped curvature.
Small buds will soon become arms
and legs.

Seven weeks into your
pregnancy, or five weeks after
conception, your baby's brain
and face are rapidly developing.
Tiny nostrils become visible, and
the eye lenses begin to form.
The arm buds that sprouted last
week now take on the shape of
paddles.

By the end of this week
your baby may be 1/4 to
1/3 inch (7 to 9
millimeters) long — a
little bigger than the top
of a pencil eraser.

It takes 49 days from
conception to form all the
organs a baby will have during
its lifetime. The rest of the
pregnancy, the organs are
learning how to do their job and
the baby is increasing in size.

First stage: Begins from
the onset of true labor and
lasts until the cervix is
completely dilated to 10
cm.

Second stage: Continues
after the cervix is dilated to
10 cm until the delivery of
your baby.

Third stage: Delivery of
your placenta.
