High Resolution Fetal Development Photos at 7, 8, 11,12,14, 16, and 20 Weeks from Conception

PROBLEMS: If you experience problems with this page, try the Alternate High Resolution Page or the Lower Resolution Page. (Problems have been reported when using some versions of the Netscape browser, but the alternate pages should work in all browsers.)

Click on the link next to the desired picture (below) to load  a Java applet which will allow you to zoom in and out, and pan on a high resolution version of that picture using your mouse buttons and mouse pointer.

Two alternative text links are provided. The first will load the same Java applet with a one mouse button zoom function for those who only have one button. (or if the second button doesn't function properly) The second alternate link is provided for those who don't have a Java plug-in on their browser or can't use Java due to security policies on their system. This link will load the image directly into the browser window without using Java. In this version there is no zooming function, but you can use the browsers scroll bars to pan around the picture. AOL users may see a lower quality image due to AOL's image compression. You can turn this compression off within AOL  ( Settings>Preferences>Internet Properties>Web Graphics) or use an external browser such as Netscape Navigator to avoid AOL's image compression.

Please note that all images will be displayed in a new browser window which can be closed when finished viewing the image. (rather than using the BACK button on your browser) Please be patient. These images are large and may take up to 30 seconds to load if you have a slow (dial-up) Internet connection.
