Baby Project, Life Card

My new life card says that me and my partner will be moving to a big city. We chose to adopt so i believe moving to the city will help mine and my partners chances of adopting because there are a lot more adoption agencies in the city than the country. If i had not miscarriaged, my baby in my womb would be about 4 and a half inches in length and would weight about 3 and a half ounces. Also the babys legs are much more developed, its head is more erect than it has been, and its eyes have moved closer to the front of its head. Its ears are close to their final position, too. The patterning of its scalp has begun, though its locks aren't recognizable yet. It's even started growing toenails.

8 weeks-your baby's arms and legs are growing longer, and fingers have begun to form. The shell-shaped parts of your baby's ears also are forming, and your baby's eyes and nipples are visible. The upper lip and nose have formed. The trunk of your baby's body is beginning to straighten.Your baby may begin to move this week, but you won't be able to feel it yet. By the end of this week, your baby may be about 1/2 inch long.

9 weeks-your baby's arms grow, develop bones and bend at the elbows. Toes begin to form, and your baby's eyelids and ears continue developing. By the end of this week, your baby may be close to 3/4 inch long.

10 weeks-your baby's head has become more round. The neck begins to develop, and your baby's eyelids begin to close to protect his or her developing eyes.Although the genitals are developing, it's still too soon to identify your baby's sex.

11 weeks-your baby's head still makes up about half of its length. But your baby's body is about to catch up, growing rapidly in the coming weeks. Your baby is now officially described as a fetus. This week your baby's eyes are widely separated, the eyelids fused and the ears low set. Red blood cells are beginning to form in your baby's liver. By the end of this week, your baby's external genitalia will start developing into a penis or clitoris and labia majora. By now your baby may measure about 2 inches long.

12 weeks-Your baby's face now has a human profile. By now your baby may be nearly 2 1/2 inches long.

13 weeks-Your baby's eyes are starting to move closer together by pregnancy 13 weeks. Up until this point in time, they rested closely along the sides of the head. Your baby's intestines are also moving further into the body, and your baby's tiny pancreas is starting to produce insulin.

14 weeks-your baby's body is growing quite rapidly. His length is catching up with his slightly larger head. The ears have started their move to the sides of the head, and the eyes continue to get closer and closer together.
Ultrasound pregnancy week 14
During pregnancy week 14, your baby's neck will elongate, and the chin will start to rise up off the chest. Your baby's reflexes will also continue to develop this week. By now, your baby should be receiving his or her nutrition directly from the placenta. Remember that everything you put into your body can cross the placental wall and impact your baby.

15 weeks-Your baby's legs are growing longer than his arms now and all his joints and limbs can move. His genitals may be developed enough to show on an ultrasound scan.

16 weeks-Your baby is about the size of a pear this week. Some of the more advanced body systems are working now, including his circulation and urinary tract. Your baby may be playing with the umbilical cord too.
