Can I see my detailed tax return as i'm preparing it?

Hi there! I'm entered in all of my information. before filing I noticed that my federal exemptions and credits are lower than last year, which surprises me because we had another child this year. Before filing, I'd like to compare the detail behind the totals from 2015 to 2016 to understand what changed. Is it possible to do that?
