earsEarsAuditory ability has developed enough for the baby to react to sounds. Don't be surprised if you feel a flutter after a loud, sudden noise!
heartHeartThe heart has separated into chambers, and now it beats between 155 and 195 times a minute.
What's happening this week:
Your baby is about 5 inches from crown to rump this week. The body is growing faster than the head now, so the fetus is in better proportion by the end of the week. He can now hear sounds inside and outside your body, and movements are becoming more noticeable and regular.
