What Your Baby Looks Like Each Month

The news of a pregnancy confirmation usually gives us butterflies in the stomach (and much more)! The adventure of pregnancy keeps popping up one surprise after another, from the first baby steps (pun intended) to the arrival of D-Day. And a pregnant mother keeps track of the months, weeks, and days until the big reveal. As a result, a 9-month wait is understandably long and unsettling. A mother would want to know how her kid is doing, what developmental milestones he or she is reaching within the ᴡᴏᴍʙ, and if everything is progressing as it should. So, to calm your restless spirits here’s a month-by-month ʙʀᴇᴀᴋdown of what’s probably going on in your pregnant tummy right now:


You’ve completed the task! Instead, the sᴘᴇʀᴍ has made it to the ᴏᴠᴀʀʏ, which is why you’ve probably missed your period this month.

Month 1 Development (At 4 Weeks)

When your home pregnancy test comes back positive, here is what you should do. Your kid has now developed into an ᴇᴍʙʀʏᴏ. When the ᴇᴍʙʀʏᴏ connects to the ᴜᴛᴇʀᴜs, it might cause implantation ʙʟᴇᴇᴅɪɴɢ, which is a little amount of ʙʟᴇᴇᴅɪɴɢ. The baby’s face and neck structures begin to form from this point forward. The development of vital organs like the heart, liver, lungs, stomach, and ʙʟᴏᴏᴅ arteries begins.

Month 2 Development (At 8 Weeks)

The ᴇᴍʙʀʏᴏ has grown to the size of a half-inch fetus. The eyelids, ears, and nose begin to develop. The fingers and toes on the arms and legs are noticeably longer.

Month 3 Development (At 12 Weeks)

Your baby is now 2 inches long and starting to move about. Using sophisticated tools, the doctor may be able to detect the baby’s heartbeat. The baby’s s.e.xorgans begin to grow as well.

Month 4 Development (At 16 Weeks)

Your baby is currently around 4.3 inches tall. The heart and ʙʟᴏᴏᴅ vessels have completed their development. Fingerprints can be seen on the fingers and toes. The baby’s eyes begin to blink as well.

Month 5 Development (At 20 Weeks)

Your baby is now around 6 inches long and up to 10 ounces in weight. The infant can now yawn and stretch, as well as make faces and thumbsuck. Quickening is a term for the small fluttery motions you’ll experience presently. This is when an ultrasound is performed to see the beating heart and movements of the baby. The gender is now visible as well.


Month 6 Development (At 24 Weeks)

The baby’s inner ear is fully formed, and he or she is now responding to noises. Hiccups occur in the infant, which can be felt by the mother. This is linked to the development of the lungs. Your kid should now be weighing around 1.4 pounds.

Month 7 Development (At 28 Weeks)

Your baby is now around 2.6 pounds and keeps changing his/her position frequently. If a baby was to deliver ᴘʀᴇᴍᴀᴛᴜʀᴇly now, there are high chances of survival. So, do speak to your doctor in this regard.

Month 8 Development (At 34 Weeks)

Your kid is currently approximately 2.6 pounds and is constantly changing positions. If a baby were to be born preterm today, it would have a good chance of surviving. As a result, talk to your doctor about it.

Month 9 Development (At 36 Weeks)

Your baby’s brain is now quickly growing. The lungs will have fully grown, and the baby will begin to orient itself (in most instances) head-first towards the pelvis. Your kid will be at an early term (37 weeks to be exact) in a week. The doctor will now assess if you are birth-ready during your prenatal checkup in week 37. The game of wait-and-see has begun.

The Countdown To Birth

If everything goes according to plan, you should begin to feel labor ᴘᴀɪɴs around your due date. Don’t worry if you don’t; due dates are “estimated,” which means they don’t have to be exact. If you go more than two weeks over your due date, consult your doctor. Your doctor will most likely try to induce labor.

We wish you the best of success on your path to parenthood now that you know how your little angel is shaping up’ within you!
