Are you pregnant and anxious to know how your baby could look like at this time?

While regular ultrasound scans give you a glimpse of the baby now and then, you might want to know more in detail. In this MomJunction post, we give you a detailed picture of how your baby grows inside the womb.

Read on until the end to learn about the size of the baby, how they are developing every week and what they can sense or feel before they enter the real world.

To give you a clear picture, the growing baby’s size is compared to a fruit or a vegetable (1). The baby’s length and weight is also mentioned for each week (2).

Week 1 to 3:

Week one of pregnancy begins on the first day of your last period, followed by ovulation in the second week. If the egg gets fertilized within 12 to 24 hours of ovulation, then the zygote (fertilized egg) travels through the fallopian tube during the third week. The zygote undergoes cell multiplication to form a blastocyst, which finally attaches to the endometrium of the uterus, leading to conception.
