What You’re Seeing: In this 3D image of the developing embryo, you can see a big change since previous week of the first trimester. The baby-to-be curves inward, with the umbilical cord in the middle. The head appears at the upper right side of the image.
The baby is considered an embryo at this point and is 1/25 of an inch long. Image Source: Copyright © Medical RF / Phototake — All rights reserved.
Your baby moves through different stages, starting as a blastocyst, then maturing into an embryo, and then a fetus. Around the five week mark, your baby’s heart will begin to beat, at 27 weeks they’ll have regular sleep and wake cycles, and at 39 weeks your baby is physically developed.
