Seven weeks

Our baby’s crown to rump measurement is about 0.56 to 0.8 inches (14 to 20mm). Our baby’s face has a recognizable shape with eyelids and the tip of a nose with formed nostrils, though his head is still very large compared to the rest of his body. All major organs are now formed and in place, though they still need to mature. A tongue has already formed. The ears are forming both internally and externally. The arms and legs extend forward and shoulders, elbows, hips and knees are detectable. Knees and elbows have begun to form on the limbs. Tiny fingers and toes are starting to appear at the tips of your baby’s developing limbs and the arms may be slightly flexed at the elbows and wrists. All major organs are in place. Our baby is moving around a lot, moving his legs and flexing his spine, but I am unable to feel it at this point. Our baby’s genitals have begun development, though they are still difficult to identify.
