4 When the sperm penetrates the egg, the egg immediately releases a chemical creating a hard shell around it to keep all other sperm out
5 2 cell zygote The zygote begins to develop 4 cell zygote
6 8 cell zygote 16 cell morula
7 Blastocyst When zygote divides to 32 cells it Becomes known as a Blastocyst
8 Cross Section of a Blastocyst
9 Blastocyst The Blastocyst embeds into the uterine lining, and begins to develop the placenta Uterine lining
10 The placenta is the lining of the uterus that the umbilical cord will attach to. While nutrients and oxygen move across the placental wall, the embryo s blood and the mother s blood never mix
11 The Blastocyst begins to collapse Day 15 The primitive streak can be seen on the left side of this embryo. Day 17 The primitive streak can still be seen, and the opposite end of the embryo is starting to fold up.
12 Day 19 The neural tube is seen along with somites on either side of it. Somites - zipper-like motion of the neural tube closing together, three pairs of small bumps form on either side of the closure. they will form the skeleton and the major muscles of the body. Thirty-eight pairs of somites will line the neural tube within 2 weeks.

15 5 Week Embryo 5 Week, 4 day Embryo
16 At the end of four weeks: Embryo is 1/4 inch in length Heart, digestive system, backbone and spinal cord begin to form Placenta (sometimes called "afterbirth") begins developing The single fertilized egg is now 10,000 times larger than size at conception
17 At the end of 8 weeks: Embryo is 1 1/8 inches in length Eyes, nose, lips, tongue, ears and teeth are forming Penis begins to appear in boys Embryo is moving, although the mother can not yet feel movement Heart is functioning
18 At the end of 12 weeks: Fetus is 2 1/2 to 3 inches long Weight is about 1/2 to 1 ounce Nails start to develop and earlobes are formed Fetus develops recognizable form Arms, hands, fingers, legs, feet and toes are fully formed Eyes are almost fully developed By this stage, a fetus has developed most of his/her organs and tissues Fetal heart rate can be heard at 10 weeks with a special Doppler instrument
19 At the end of 4 months: Fetus is 6 1/2 to 7 inches long Weight is about 6 to 7 ounces Fetus is developing reflexes such as sucking and swallowing. Fetus may begin sucking his/her thumb Tooth buds are developing Sweat glands are forming on palms and soles Fingers and toes are well defined Sex is identifiable Skin is bright pink, transparent and covered with soft, downy hair Although recognizably human in appearance, the baby would not be able to survive outside the mother's body
20 At the end of 5 months: Fetus is 8 to 10 inches long Weight is about 1 pound Hair begins to grow on his/her head Soft woolly hair called lanugo will cover its body (and some may remain until a week after birth when it is shed) Mother begins to feel fetal movement Internal organs are maturing Eyebrows, eyelids and eyelashes appear

22 At the end of 7 months: Fetus is 14 to 16 inches long Weight is about 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 pounds Taste buds have developed Fat layers are forming Organs are maturing Skin is still wrinkled and red If born at this time, he/she will be considered a premature baby and require special care
23 At the end of 8 months: Fetus is 16 1/2 to 18 inches long Weight is about 4 to 6 pounds Overall growth is rapid this month Tremendous brain growth occurs at this time Most body organs are now developed with the exception of the lungs Movements or "kicks" are strong enough to be visible from the outside Kidneys are mature Skin is less wrinkled Fingernails now extend beyond fingertips
24 At the end of 9 months: Fetus is 19 to 20 inches long Weight is about 7 to 7 ½ pounds The lungs are mature Baby is now fully developed and can survive outside the mother's body Skin is pink and smooth He/she settles down lower in the abdomen in preparation for birth and may seem less active

26 Conception Conception means a woman's egg has been fertilized by a man's sperm. Within a day, the egg begins to divide and develop rapidly. A few days later a cluster of cells arrives in the uterus By the eighth day after conception, this cluster has increased to hundreds of cells and attaches to the wall of the uterus where it continues its rapid growth.
27 Four Weeks After the cluster of cells attaches to the womb it is called an embryo. The embryo is between 1/100 and 4/100 inch long at this time. The embryo continues rapid growth.
28 6 Weeks The embryo is about ¼ inch long and has developed a head and a trunk. Structures that will become arms and legs, called limb buds, first appear. A blood vessel forms and begins to pump blood. This will develop into the heart and circulatory system. At this time, a ridge of tissue forms down the back of the embryo. That tissue will develop into the brain and spinal cord
29 * 8 Weeks The embryo is about ½ inch long. The heart now has four chambers. Fingers and toes begin to form. Reflex activities begin as the brain and nervous system develop. Cells begin to form the eyes, ears, jaws, lungs, stomach, intestines and liver.
30 10 Weeks The embryo, is about 1 to 1¼ inches long (the head is about half the length) and weighs less than ½ ounce. The beginnings of all key body parts are present, but they are not completed. Structures that will form eyes, ears, arms and legs can be seen. Muscles and skeleton are developing and the nervous system becomes more responsive.
31 12 Weeks The fetus is about 2½ inches long and weighs about ½ ounce. Fingers and toes are distinct and have nails. Hair begins to develop, but won't be seen until later in the pregnancy. The fetus begins small, random movements, too slight to be felt. The fetal heartbeat can be detected with a heart monitor. All major external body features have appeared. Muscles continue to develop.
32 14 Weeks The fetus is about 3½ inches long and weighs about 1½ ounces. The fetus begins to swallow, the kidneys make urine, and blood begins to form in the bone marrow. Joints and muscles allow full body movement. There are eyelids and the nose is developing a bridge. External genitals are developing.
33 16 Weeks The fetus is about 4½ inches long and weighs about 4 ounces. The head is erect and the arms and legs are developed. The skin appears transparent. A fine layer of hair has begun to grow on the head. Limb movements become more coordinated.
34 18 Weeks The fetus is about 5½ inches long and weighs about 7 ounces. The skin is pink and transparent and the ears are clearly visible. All the body and facial features are now recognizable. The fetus can grasp and move its mouth. Nails begin to grow. The fetus has begun to kick. Some women feel this movement.
35 20 Weeks The fetus is about 6¼ inches long and weighs about 11½ ounces. All organs and structures are formed Skin is wrinkled and pink to reddish in color - thin and close to the blood vessels. Protective skin coating, (vernix) begins to develop. Respiratory movements occur - lungs have not developed enough to permit survival outside the uterus. By this time, mothers usually feel the fetus moving. At this time an ultrasound can often identify the sex of the fetus.
36 22 Weeks The fetus is about 7½ inches long weighs about one pound. It has fingerprints and some head and body hair. It may suck its thumb and is more active. The brain is growing very rapidly. The fetal heartbeat can be easily heard. The kidneys start to work. At 23 weeks, approximately 31% of babies born survive. Babies born at this age require intensive care and usually have lifelong disabilities and chronic health conditions.
37 24 Weeks The fetus is about 8¼ inches long and weighs about 1¼ pounds. Bones of the ears harden making sound conduction possible. The fetus hears mother s sounds such as breathing, heartbeat and voice. The first layers of fat are beginning to form. This is the beginning of substantial weight gain for the fetus. Lungs continue developing At 25 weeks, approximately 68% of babies born survive. Babies born at this age require intensive care and usually have life-long disabilities and chronic health conditions.
38 26 Weeks The fetus is about 9 inches long and weighs about 2 pounds. The fetus can respond to sound from both inside and outside the womb. Reflex movements continue to develop and body movements are stronger. Lungs continue to develop. The fetus now wakes and sleeps. The skin is slightly wrinkled. At 27 weeks, approximately 87% of babies born survive. Babies born at this age require intensive care and have an increased risk of developmental delays and chronic health conditions.
39 28 Weeks The fetus is about 10 inches long and weighs about 2 pounds, 3 ounces. Mouth and lips show more sensitivity. The eyes are partially open and can perceive light. More than 90% of babies born at this age will survive. Some survivors have developmental delays and chronic health conditions.
40 30 Weeks The fetus is about 10½ inches long and weighs about 3 pounds. The lungs that are capable of breathing air, although medical help may be needed. The fetus can open and close its eyes, suck its thumb, cry and respond to sound. The skin is smooth. Rhythmic breathing and body temperature are now controlled by the brain. Most babies born at this age will survive.
41 32 Weeks The fetus is about 11 inches long and weighs about 3 pounds, 12 ounces. The connections between the nerve cells in the brain increase. Fetal development now centers on growth. Almost all babies born at this age will survive.
42 34 Weeks The fetus is about 12 inches long and weighs about 4½ pounds. Ears begin to hold shape. Eyes open during alert times and close during sleep. Almost all babies born at this age will survive.
43 36 Weeks The fetus is about 12 to 13 inches long and weighs about 5½ to 6 pounds. Scalp hair is silky and lies against the head. Muscle tone has developed and the fetus can turn and lift its head. Almost all babies born at this age will survive.
44 38 Weeks The fetus is about 13½ to 14 inches long and weighs about 6½ pounds. Lungs are usually mature. The fetus can grasp firmly. The fetus turns toward light sources. Almost all babies born at this age will survive.
45 40 Weeks The fetus is about 18 to 20 inches long and may weigh about 7½ pounds. At the time of birth, a baby has more than 70 reflex behaviors, which are automatic behaviors necessary for survival. The baby is full-term and ready to be born.
