Weeks 16 - 17

In this section, you can read about the development of your baby during pregnancy and the processes going on inside your body. Generally, pregnancy lasts for a period of 40 weeks, counting from the first day of your last menstruation. In other words, fertilisation does not take place until the third week of pregnancy (depending on the time of ovulation).

Baby is able to form facial expressions, play with the umbilical cord and can hear the sound of your heart and voice.
