The baby’s cells divide continuously. Even if you do not feel it, he/she quickly develops inside you. So quickly that this week the baby will be 10-14mm and will weigh 1,5 g. His/her head has not stopped growing yet and it is quite bigger than the body and it is still in a position bent towards it. The small heart and the liver take a huge place in this small space. The remaining tiny space is occupied by the wide umbilical cord that will become thinner soon. The other organs of the baby are very small but they already take their particular places. At the end of this week, the stomach of your midget has achieved its final form and it only has to grow on. The urinary system is also available. The primary sex cells are at their places, but the sex of the baby is not clearly outlined yet. You will still have to wonder whether a small beauty or a hansom gentleman will smile to you!
The baby’s face is gradually being formed; the nasal and maxillary inceptions merge together. A small plate from which the teeth will grow later appears. And if his/her eyes have been located at the side until recently, now they become closer. The eye nerve starts its initial development.
Vertebrae are gradually arranged along the spinal cord and take a position to form the spine. Wave-shaped lines are also formed that divide five tiny heights. Even you think they are formless now, they will soon become fluffy fingers. At the same time, the baby’s legs stretch.
