Fetal baby in early first trimester

Week 6:

By six weeks, the egg and sperm have developed into an embryo about the size of a raspberry that has a tiny beating heart.

Week 7:

The preborn baby begins to move spontaneously. The jaw forms, including teeth buds in the gums.  Just look at those perfect fingers and toes! The little heart has been beating for a month now… Photographs have been taken of baby sucking thumb at just 7 weeks after conception.

Week 8:

The preborn baby is a little more than an inch long. Everything is now present that will be found in a fully developed adult.  Baby just needs time…
