Your pregnancy week by week
Pregnancy goes on for nine months and there’s lots happening every week. If you’re curious to find out more about how your baby is growing read on …….
WEEK NINE: Your baby now has toes and hair follicles are also beginning to appear. They are now officially a fetus rather than an embryo and have entered a new phase of development. Their face looks more human and their eyes are distinguishable. Unbelievably, although your baby is still so tiny, it now has all the organs that an adult has. In a healthy pregnancy a strong heartbeat will usually be detectable by this stage. By the end of this week the embryo will weigh around 0.028kg and measure around 7.6 cm in length.
