Developments of your baby after 8 weeks pregnant
The sex of your baby has already been established during conception, but the genital organs are only used when you are 8 weeks pregnant. The testes now arise in young boys. If it is a girl, the ovaries will start in this week.
The start of the skeleton is created like the bones and joints. Your baby does not have a real bone, but only cartilage. Gradually, the phalanges of the fingers are also created. The fingers are not yet separate from each other but are connected to a membrane (similar to swimming membranes). Your baby already has eyes. The eyes have to be further developed, so your baby does not have iris and no eyelids. Your child can not see anything yet.
Your baby's organs are almost completely developed and the brain is starting to work now. Also the heart starts in this week with circulating blood.
Pregnancy acne at 8 weeks of pregnancy
Maybe you already had some problems in week seven, but week eight is known for many women getting pregnancy acne. This is caused by the pregnancy hormones. These hormones ensure that your skin produces more oil and is therefore fatter.
Pants are tighter
Your baby is only 2 centimeters in size, but your uterus has grown considerably in the meantime. Your intestines can also set up in this week. If you have trouble closing the top button of your pants, it is very normal! This does not mean that you have arrived, but comes through your growing uterus and swollen intestines.
