Baby’s growth:
In this period a rapid growth of the baby is noticed. This speedy growth is experienced till the 20th week. In this week your baby grows from a length of 1 inch to approximately 2 inches, and the head of your baby is approximately half the size. To have room for all this growth, blood vessels inside the placenta increases in size and in number providing your baby with additional nutrients.

Your baby’s eyelids are shut wherein the irises start developing. May be this week or in the next week, blood would start circulating between the uterus and the baby wherein the placenta starts functioning.

The facial development of your baby continues with the ears moving towards their concluding location on the head sides. Though the reproductive organs of your baby are experiencing rapid development, the exterior genitals of either sex appear to be similar. Clear differentiation of the same is possible around 14th week.
