04.11.09 8 weeks: raspberries!

Your babies are developing at an amazing rate during these early weeks. Eyelid folds and ears are forming. Your babies’ eyes are still very wide apart on the sides of his/her head, but will eventually center themselves out. The tip of the nose is actually present at this time as well. On ultrasound you can see that the aortic and pulmonary valves of the heart are present. The tubes that lead from the throat to lungs are branching and your babies’ torsos are getting longer and beginning to straighten out. Just a few weeks ago, your babies’ arms were tiny buds. Now the elbows are actually present and the arms and legs extend forward and have grown longer. Fingers and toes are becoming visible also.
