*All weeks stated by Life are from fertilisation. Other resources use LMP (last menstrual period) or gestational age to measure pregnancy development. This counts the start of pregnancy from the mother’s last period, (which is typically two weeks before fertilisation and so adds two weeks to the stages of development.)
