During this week your baby is about 12 cm long. With the help of the ultrasound, his/her head can be already measured. Its diameter is about 3,2 cm.
The little baby’s skeleton continues its establishment. It constantly generates bone and is in a stage of speedy growth. The fingers can already fold. Just like the other babies you have seen, your baby inside can also clench his/her fists! The toes are not late and can now spread! However, these movements are not controlled by the brain.
The mouth of your baby has acquired new skills. It may open, close and carry out sucking movements. Thus, your baby swallows a little amount of the amniotic liquid it swims in. Do not worry about this, it is absolutely normal. These liquids are released from the small organism in the form of urine through the already functioning kidneys.
