If you’ve ever wanted to see just how your insides cope when growing a new life, just grab the interactive dial on this video and watch in awe.

Make room for baby

Chicago’s Museum of Science and Technology has just release this ‘interactive’  – which can be used as a hands-on way to view pregnancy, or can be watched as a YouTube clip.

By using the dial, you can progress through a typical pregnancy, and watch how a woman’s organs are pushed and moved to make way for their bundle of joy.

There are also a series of fascinating facts that accompany the progressions through pregnancy.

For instance, did you know that when you’re between five and eight weeks pregnant your estrogen increases one thousand fold? And between 25 and 28 weeks your bub is moving 30 times an hour.

The video also features quotes from mums explaining how they felt or what they thought during each stage of pregnancy. It’s a great glimpse into how different pregnancy is for each woman.
