Your little baby is now about 3cm long and weighs 2-3g. His/her weight is always related to the big head of your otherwise delicate and fragile creature. The reason is that the brain is gradually but constantly being formed in there.
The face of your midget is also being formed. It has an external ear that is located very low and close to the mouth. The nose already forms its turned up tip. The mouth cavity and the nasal cavity come together to form the palate. Milk teeth also take their precise position into their underdeveloped buds being divided by 10 on the upper and lower jaw. The baby’s eyes are still open as they do not have eyelids during this week of their development.
If until recently the baby has been bent, now his/her neck is being gradually set up straight and the salivary glands that are in process of formation attach to the neck. The legs and the arms are finally formed. Your baby already has palms, and feet, and small fingers and toes!
At the end of the eight week of your pregnancy, the cardiovascular system of your little treasure is fully developed.
