Your baby is the size of an olive: about 13 – 17mm in length. Her heart is divided into chambers and the valves start to form. The tail is completely gone. Her teeth start to form. Her eyelids are shut and won’t open till the 27th week. Her nose, mouth and ears are formed.  The internal reproductive organs are formed either testis for boys or ovaries for girls but you still cannot determine the gender.
