WEEK 8: Slightly more human, slightly less tail

~length1 in | 2.5 cm
~weight0.05 oz | 1.5 g

Woohoo! You've got one whole inch of baby inside of you!

Your little embryo has finally reached the one-inch mark (30mm)!

What's more, your baby is finally starting to take on some very distinct human features. For starters, their little tail (really just the spinal cord) has disappeared completely.

It's nice to know your baby can no longer be mistaken for a sea creature! Additionally, both their toes and fingers are prominent with very little, if any, webbing. Upper and lower limbs all show recognizable joints (elbows and knees) and the lower limb bones are starting to ossify.

Still, don't expect your baby to resemble either parent quite yet - that is unless you look like a bobble-headed alien.

Right now, your tiny baby's head is disproportionately larger than the rest of their body and makes up almost half of their height and weight!
