A pregnancy is generally considered to be in the embryonic stage of development between the fifth and the eleventh weeks after fertilization, and is expressed as a fetus from the twelfth week.

A foetus begins developing fingerprints eight weeks after conception.

Twins interact with each other in the womb as early as 14 weeks into the pregnancy.

Scientists suggest that the dreams of fetuses are mostly composed of sound and touch sensations, given the lack of visual stimuli in the womb.

All human fetuses grow a mustache that spreads all over their entire body. The baby then eats the hair in utero and poops it out after birth.

When babies in the womb are seen sucking their thumb, they are sucking their right thumb 90% of the time.

An unborn baby can taste what it's mother is eating and develop a preference for the foods that she eats.

Certain mammals such as the red kangaroo or roe deer can perform Embryonic Diapause- the ability to "pause" embryo development in unfavorable environmental conditions, effectively saving the embryo and the mother's life in bad conditions.
