3 – 4 weeks (from conception)
You may have only just confirmed you are pregnant or missed your period, and already your baby has a tiny beating heart!
She (or he!) already has DNA determining their gender, hair colour, eye colour, personality and more!
Your baby’s brain is also forming. Tiny neurons and a nervous system will prompt your baby’s very first movements.
Your body has also begun preparing to help protect and grow that tiny life inside you. At this point, many women are advised to follow a healthy lifestyle and to take prenatal vitamins to help ensure their baby will be as healthy as possible.
