Fetus

A fetus is the scientific term for your baby after he has completed the embryonic stage and before he is born. In other words your baby is considered a fetus between week 10 and week 40.

Unlike the zygotic and embryonic stages of your baby’s development, your fetus actually looks human. Congrats mum and dad you’re having a human!

As a fetus your baby undergoes rapid growth and development, all of which you can trace using our weekly development pages.
