My Baby - Week by Week Pregnancy

Week 9 - All the Major Organs are Formed

Your baby is about one inch from crown to rump - or roughly the size of a strawberry. Weighing in at two grams, your baby is very active, although it is too tiny for you to feel its movements yet. He or she now has all the major organs, muscles, and nerves; and a Doppler may be able to find its heartbeat.

While his or her testes or ovaries are formed, the external genitalia still appear sexless, which is why it is too early for an ultrasound to reveal its gender. Eyelids are beginning to form and the trunk is straightening and elongating, cartilage and bones are forming, the basic structures of the eyes are in place, and the tongue is beginning to develop. The fingers and thumb are visible, albeit short and webbed.
