This week of your pregnancy will surely not be as “quiet” as the last two weeks. The reason is that, even though you still do not hear or feel it, the heart of your baby has been already formed and beats. It is rather a rudiment. It represents two tubes that become alive in rhythmic heart beats. Your little one is still so fragile! But after a time, its heart will become stronger in order to be ready for mom’s love.
The first blood vessels appear during this period. They still do not contain red blood cells, but only primary cells from which all types of blood cells will be formed later. As a result of the accelerated cell division, the little baby grows fast and unnoticeably – from 0,2 mm it reaches 1,5 mm! A creature yearning for life grows inside you!
