Congratulations! You're pregnant and you're expecting your kid in the next couple of months! To fuel your excitement even further, here are some images showing you what goes on inside your womb. Check it out:
At just 4 days after fertilization:

4. At about 10 weeks:
All of her major body functions are up and running. The kidneys, intestines, brain, and liver are all working. She will start to flex her tiny arms and legs now.
5. At 12 weeks:
She's busy stretching and kicking, and if you put your hand on your tummy, you might just get a response from her as her reflexes are starting to develop,
6. At 16 weeks gestation:
7. Sucking her thumb at about 18-20 weeks gestation:

9. Around 6-7 months gestation:
10. At around 8 months gestation:
Your baby is almost at full term, and by this stage she's pretty much ready to come out.
