Your baby’s eyelids begin to form, and even cover the eyes. The fingers and toes, which were formed last week, become clearer and start to open. The nerve cells in your baby’s brain begin to develop. You may be wondering at this week about gender but the external genital organs haven’t developed enough to tell whether it’s a girl or a boy. In your 8th week, your baby is now the size of a bean, but you can’t feel it yet even though there’s a lot of activity in terms of growth.
The world outside can’t see this exciting development inside you. You should avoid alcohol during your pregnancy. This is because the extent to which alcohol will harm an unborn baby is still not known precisely. In these weeks, your breasts will feel full. It’s time to get a new bra! Also, you will probably feel like urinating more often.
