Stages of fetal development

Fetal development – 9 weeks

How does your child grow?

Your child’s length is now approximately one inch and weighs a few grams. He began to look more and more like a tiny human being. Many changes occur this week, including the completion of the heart of your child, which is divided into four rooms, and also the valves and the tail has disappeared completely. The external genitalia have been formed but we will not be able to distinguish whether they are male or female now for a few more weeks. The eye is fully formed, but it is closed and will not bloom until the 27th week. It also has a small ear lobe, and the mouth and nose are now clearer.
