faq fetal dev1. “It’s just a blob of tissue, right?”

Fertilization occurs the moment that the egg and the sperm meet. The development of your baby has begun. Even in the first week of your pregnancy, your baby has its own unique DNA that determines the gender, eye color, hair, height and other distinct characteristics. By the end of the eighth week, the baby’s skeleton, brain, face, arms, legs, fingers, toes, fingerprints, circulatory system, and muscular system are present.

2. “When does the heart start beating?”

A baby’s heart starts beating around 21 days (3 weeks).
