The joy of knowing that you are the only one that has the pleasure to feel the movements of your baby from the inside – every movement, every growth – is beyond what your imagined. However, have you ever been curious as to how this life inside you goes on to become your full-grown baby? Here is the monthly progress of your baby inside your womb

10. Ninth month
