Week 14 for Parents

Week 12 for Parents
Tiny fingernails and toenails start to form this week, which is the last of your first trimester.
Week 3 for Parents
During this week, the rapidly dividing fertilized egg will implant itself in the uterus, at the site that eventually will become the placenta.
Week 21 for Parents
Your baby's intestines are developed enough that small amounts of sugars are absorbed from the fluid your baby swallows and passed through the digestive system to the large bowel.
Week 29 for Parents
Your active baby's first few flutters of movement have given way to hard jabs and kicks that may take your breath away.
Week 2 for Parents
Week 2 is the midpoint of a typical menstrual cycle, when ovulation occurs and conditions are most favorable for fertilization of an egg by sperm.
Week 1 for Parents
Week 1 is actually your menstrual period, but because your due date is calculated from the first day of your last period, it counts as part of your 40-week pregnancy.
Week 6 for Parents
Your baby's heart will begin to beat around this time, and the beginnings of the digestive and respiratory systems are forming, as are small buds that will grow into arms and legs.
