This comprehensive calendar provides a detailed overview of each week of pregnancy, from conception to birth.

  • Week 2: The fertilized egg, now called a zygote, travels through the fallopian tube towards the uterus.
  • Week 3: The zygote implants into the lining of the uterus, initiating the development of the placenta and embryo.
  • Week 4: The embryo’s heart begins to beat, and the neural tube, which will eventually form the brain and spinal cord, starts to develop.

  • Week 5: The embryo’s major organs, including the brain, heart, and lungs, begin to form.
  • Week 6: The embryo’s limbs start to develop, and the eyes and ears become visible.
  • Week 7: The embryo’s external genitalia begin to differentiate, and the placenta is fully formed.
  • Week 8: The embryo is now referred to as a fetus, and its heartbeat can be detected with an ultrasound.

Week 9-12: Rapid Fetal Growth

  • Week 9: The fetus’s facial features become more defined, and the fingers and toes are fully formed.
