In the Womb: Witness the Journey from Conception to Birth through Astonishing 3D Images
Imagine being able to observe with astonishing clarity a child's delicate features as they evolve over the course of a pregnancy, or witness the complex behavior of new human life in utero. Now we can, thanks to the advent of innovative 3D and 4D imaging technologies that provide a powerful diagnostic tool for doctors and cast vivid light on our earliest development—and a profound new way for parents to bond with their babies on a deeper emotional level.89% (15)
Combining more than 140 images of life-like models based on the latest science, computer-generated illustrations, and 3D ultrasound images with an uplifting, informative text, In the Womb is a week-by-week chronicle of the mysterious, magical progress from embryo to fetus to full-term infant.
Each spread features a central image and information about that particular stage as well as brief commentary explaining what we know and how we know it. For example, at 24 weeks we watch a fetus open and close her eyes, display facial expressions resembling a grimace and a frown, and stick out her tongue (no one has yet established exactly why). And during the last trimester, we learn, she experiences REM sleep and can hear loud noises through the fluids of her mother's body—a first hint of the world that awaits outside the womb.
Based on National Geographic's acclaimed television program, originally aired in 2005 and soon to be supplemented with two more 2-hour segments, In the Womb is the perfect gift for expectant parents and a fascinating perspective for anyone captivated by the miracle of life.

0/365 June 4, 2009 Hello World, My name is Benjamin Davis Smith, but you can call me Ben. I’m named after my Great Grandfather, Benjamin George Smith. I was born five days ago, Sunday, May 31, 2009, and this is my story… Around 4:45 that morning, I decided I’d been in the womb long enough, and stated my independence by breaking my mother’s water and heading for the exit. I think Mom and Dad were a little freaked out, but composed themselves nicely after the initial shock, and Dad drove us to the Hospital around 6:00. I was not in the mood to wait, and the Doctor told us at 6:30 that I was going to have to come out. Not knowing what the outside world had in store for me, I had decided several weeks before that a feet first approach was prudent. My Doctor’s disagreed of course, and performed a caesarean in order to extract me. I came out at 7:32, kicking and screaming, which was music to my parent’s ears. At a fighting weight of 4lbs 15ozs and standing 17.5 inches tall, I’m a good size for my age, but there were still concerns. You see, I was born 7 weeks premature. Aside from being totally unprepared for my arrival, my parents and the Doctors were worried about my lung development, and for good reason. My first night in the NICU, one of my lungs collapsed, I had a chest tube inserted, and was given surfactant to speed my development. It was scary at first, but after about 38 hours, x-rays showed that my lung had healed and the tube was removed. Since then I’ve been doing well, still spending all of my time in the NICU under the watchful eyes of my nurses. I’m hooked to a countless number of machines and monitoring devices, but my parents come to see me often. I’ve even been able to spend time with them outside of my isolette at feeding times. I’m progressing rapidly, decreasing my dependence on the oxygen and eating milk through a feeding tube. I’ll be in the hospital for several weeks until I can eat on my own and am able to breathe room air, but I’m looking forward to the days ahead and time at home. I wanted to thank everyone for the well wishes and prayers that I’ve received over the past several days, they are much appreciated. I’m happy to report that my Mom is doing very well after her surgery, with no complications. I know my Dad plans to keep everyone updated on my progress. I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of me, since I’ve seen as much of his camera as I have of him. So, I’m off to sleep again, but it’s been a pleasure to meet you all. Take care, BenWeek 20
Week Twenty You're half way there! The rapid growth stage is about over. While things have slowed down, this next stage is vital to survival. The baby's heart grows stronger. Find a quiet place, lay flat on your back. Locate your own heartbeat by finding your pulse. Next lay your hand on your belly. You may be able to distinguish the two heartbeats! Her legs are reaching their relative size. With the increase muscle develop occurring as well, you will start feeling much more than tiny flutter kicks soon! Immunities are being transferred from you to your baby now. These immune cells will protect her from viruses you've already had for up to six months after birth! The nerve cells for taste, smell, hearing, seeing, and touch are now developing in specialized areas of the brain. Production slows down as existing nerve cells grow larger and make more complex connections. Your baby may startle in reaction to loud sounds. Amazingly, she can actually hear noises outside of the womb. Familiar voices, music, and sounds that baby becomes accustomed to during her development stages often are calming after birth. If your baby is a girl, her uterus is starting to develop. She has approximately six million eggs in her ovaries. About one million will remain at birth. Baby is about 6.46 inches (16.4cm) and weighs around 10.58 ounces (300g).
Your baby is yet to be born . . . but she's listening, learning, and aware of the outside world!Related topics:
Traditionally, the world of an as-yet-unborn baby was thought to be an isolated and silent one. It was assumed that, asleep and growing in its mother's womb, the developing baby was incapable of experiencing sight, sound, thought, or emotion. In fact, the truth is very different, as bestselling author Nikki Bradford reveals here. Drawing on the latest research by leading authorities in the field, the author explains how the unborn baby's awareness of the outside world develops rapidly from very early in pregnancy.
Did you know that unborn babies respond to sound, and duck away from strong light, as early as 16 weeks? That they have been observed shying away from--and even attacking--an amniocentesis needle at around the same time? That babies follow moving light sources with their hands by 20 weeks? Or that they recognize music and nursery rhymes from 33 weeks?

Nikki Bradford has written The Miraculous World of Your Unborn Baby in consultation with leading experts in the field: San Diego-based Dr. David B. Chamberlain, President of the International Association for Pre- and Perinatal Psychology and Health, and arguably the world authority on prenatal psychology; Professor Geoffrey Chamberlain, past President of the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in the United Kingdom; and Dr. Sammy Lee, an acclaimed London-based consultant embryologist.
