You will still find yourself standing in front of the mirror and pretending to have a baby bump at the 7th week of pregnancy. You will have to wait a few more weeks before you get a pregnant belly.
Although the brain development of the baby will continue to go on long after their birth, its basic sections have been formed. As the days will progress the baby’s lungs and digestive system will also start developing. The facial features are getting sharper with time and the limbs are now shaped like small pedals.
Another important development that takes this place is the umbilical cord of the baby. This cord is very crucial as it builds a connection between the mother and the baby, throughout the pregnancy which allows the oxygen and nutrients to flow in the baby, while also eliminating the baby’s waste.
