As women stroke their round bellies and ponder the mystery unfolding inside them, and as their partners feel that first ripple of life under their curious fingertips, it is natural to wonder how their baby is changing throughout the pregnancy week by week.

It explains how your baby is developing, what symptoms you may experience and the tests and appointments that may be needed.
