To start tracking fetal development, choose your current trimester and week on the WebMD interactive fetal development tool. Each week on the timeline features two sets of images. The first images show the internal and external changes of the mother's body during pregnancy. The second images on the page show the uterine changes and fertilization process in the first four weeks, and the expected fetal development in week five through 40. Click on the pictures in the interactive tool for a larger, more detailed view of each image.

Underneath the images on each page of the WebMD interactive fetal development tool is a paragraph or more of text describing fetal development changes and what pregnancy symptoms and body changes to expect during that week. Each page also features a pregnancy tip to keep you ahead of the next week's challenges and a question suggestion to ask your doctor during your next visit.

The last feature on each page of WebMD's interactive fetal development tool is a link for a suggested related article. The articles are about which prenatal vitamins to take, when to call the doctor, and other pregnancy-related topics.
