Week-by-Week Fetal Development

Week 9

Your baby is actually beginning to look like a baby now as it takes on a more mature appearance. But the head is still at an angle as it is bent forward on to the chest. The eyes are completely developed and would look real if it were not for the membrane eyelids that still form a protective cover over them. The nose has also taken shape by this stage and the hands, feet and limbs are growing quite fast. The fingers and toes too are in the process of taking their final shape.

The next seven days will see the growth of a muscle that will serve to separate the chest cavity from the abdominal cavity. This is the baby's diaphragm, or the muscle that enables your little one to breathe.
Hey, it looks like the spine is making its first movements. Isn't this exciting? And your baby seems to be trying to test the waters of the amniotic sac as he moves around a bit and kicks a few times, as if trying out his brand new muscles. Relax, we know that you can not feel a thing as yet. Well, you are not supposed to so do not worry. Your baby is still too tiny and is floating around in the amniotic fluid.
