Are you expecting? Are you curious about what your baby looks like? Then come see rare first-trimester video clips of the living human embryo and early fetus moving and growing inside the womb that have been viewed tens of millions of times.
The MyBaby™ Pregnancy Guide will show you and your loved ones what your baby looks like and describe what your baby is doing.
Prenatal ages in this app are referenced from fertilization. If you prefer prenatal age referenced from a woman's LMP, we offer the See Baby™ Pregnancy Guide in app stores everywhere.
As a pregnant mom, you will marvel as you see the beating heart in slow motion just 4½ weeks after fertilization (or 6½ weeks after your LMP)! You will also see movement of the head, jaw, tongue, hands, and feet as well as the growing brain and liver, the emerging fingers and toes, and the placenta and umbilical cord all inside the uterus!
Do you know when to expect various baby milestones during pregnancy? You can find out by watching the weekly movies and reviewing weekly summaries of normal development obtained from the past 100 years of human development research. As you will see, your baby will form thousands of permanent body parts and do amazing things at a very young age and surprisingly small size.
You can also:
• Use the due date calculator to enter or find your due date.
• Follow your due date countdown.
• Track your baby’s expected growth (typical weight and length).
• View the beating heart and listen to the prenatal heartbeat.
• Share and send rare prenatal images to your family and friends.
• Review the many benefits of breastfeeding, along with other pregnancy tips.
• Tell us your story along with any questions or comments about the app.

The video clips featured in this free app have been adapted from EHD’s award-winning science documentary, The Biology of Prenatal Development, which presents normal human prenatal development from fertilization to birth. It is distributed by National Geographic and has been endorsed by medical researchers, embryology and obstetrics experts, and high school teachers. The video excerpts have been renarrated and modified for use on mobile platforms.
