Pregnancy BabyWhat Is Happening To Your Baby

Your baby measures about 1/6 to 1/5 inch (4.2 to 5.1 mm) long from crown to rump, or slightly smaller than a lentil.

 

The umbilical cord, which connects the baby to the placenta, will begin to form by the end of this week. The placenta provides two essential functions: delivering oxygen and nutrition from your blood supply to your baby, and transporting your baby’s waste out of the womb.
