Embryo to Fetus: Weeks 9 to 12 of Pregnancy

You're well into your first trimester at this point, and your baby is growing bigger and bigger each day. Watch what it takes for her to become a fetus.

Your Changing Body

Chances are, this is when you'll first start to show, or at least feel a bit bloated--and your breasts are probably growing quite a bit, too. Embrace these changes! There's a lot of magic happening in there.

Your Developing Baby

Your baby can actually breathe underwater, and he or she is doing just that: Inhaling amniotic fluid to help develop strong lungs. Pretty amazing, right?

Your Pregnancy

Your little one isn't that little anymore--he or she is the size of a grapefruit now, so you've earned that tiny bit of belly pooch, mama!
