"A baby in your life can fill the dark emptiness in a way nothing else can."
The moment a woman realises that she is carrying a new life in her womb is the day when she is re-born. Those little feet when kick inside the womb give lifetime footprints on mother's heart. To watch the delicate moments of the whole of the nine-month timeline is loved by every expecting parent and why shouldn't they, after all, it's their lifetime achievement.
Lennart Nilsson is a Swedish photographer who spent almost 12 years of his life in capturing the incredible pictures of the foetus growing older every week inside the womb.
What a time it was when two long-lost sperms found each other. They had a date and decided to get into a single life. So, they further attacked the egg cell.
It was a winning moment when the two sperms successfully form a single life. They named it as a 'fetus' and attached it to the wall of the uterus.
The fetus that can also be called as the human embryo was able to develop the brain inside it.
The new one has grown up to 9 mm and is able to be distinguished by its facial outlining and eye holes.
After completing the eight-week cycle, the embryo converts into a foetus and it starts recognizing its own body.
The skeleton is formed that mainly consists of flexible cartilage. A web of blood vessels is clearly visible through the translucent skin of the baby.
The foetus grows approximately 20 cm long and has now, developed nails on fingers and hair on the body.
