Your Growing Body & Baby: Pictures


weeks pregnant picturesThe week by week development of your baby inside of your body during pregnancy is an amazing process. View the development of your pregnancy at milestone weeks to see how your baby is developing. Adapted from our childbirth education tool, The Growing Uterus Charts, eight finely illustrated drawings show the baby's development at various weeks of your pregnancy. Childbirth educators have used The Growing Uterus Charts and the accompanying explanations to illustrate the baby's development during different weeks of pregnancy since 1942.
