Therefore, the countdown of fetal development begins at week three after the beginning of the woman's last menstrual period. When counted this way, pregnancy will last a total of 40 weeks.</p> <figure class="swf-asset-c-80"><span class="asset-image-title">Pregnancy Timeline</span> <div class="asset-animation"> src="https://akhpub.aboutkidshealth.ca/Style%20Library/akh/swfanimations/swf.html?swffile=Pregnancy_timeline_MED_ANI_EN.swf" </div></figure>Fetal development
