Week-by-Week Fetal Development

Week 14

This week marks the beginning of the second trimester, which is by far the most exciting phase. The growth of the baby speeds up considerably as the internal organs mature and he increases in size. In fact, his weight has already doubled from the previous week. Your placenta is functioning to full capacity as it nourishes the fetus as well as produces hormones.

The baby's major muscles are moving in tandem with the brain as he bends and twists his arms, wrists, elbows, fingers, legs, knees and toes. His nervous system has also begun to function.
You can hear a strong heartbeat with the help of an electronic device. It is almost twice the rate of a normal adult's. What's more, your baby has begun to sprout hair. He seems to have eyebrows as well as a little hair on his head. Aren't you just dying to see him?

By the end of this week, your baby will measure around four inches or 10cm. He now weighs two and quarter ounces or 65g.which is more than double that of the previous week.
