During your pregnancy, you will see many changes in your body. However, the most incredible changes are occurring in your developing baby. In 9 short months, your baby grows from a few small cells into a fully grown, fully developed little being that can live on its own outside of your body. For 9 months, your body has protected, nourished and nurtured the baby as it has grown to maturity, ready to begin its life. And although you won't be able to see much more than an enlarging abdomen, incredible things are happening inside your body.
This chapter attempts to give you an idea of some of the fascinating things that occur as your baby grows and develops. After reading it, you may agree with me that the growth of your baby is truly a miracle.
