Ultrasound pictures 8 weeks pregnant

This week is vital for the brain development of the fetus as the nerve cells branch out and connect with each other to form primitive neural pathways [2].
This is the week when your baby’s facial features (eyes, nose and lips) begin to develop [4]. A hint of the upper lip, the tip of the nose and the eyelids become visible on ultrasound along with two tiny ears. All the symptoms of early pregnancy and morning sickness continue in the eighth week with nausea, vomiting, headache and dizziness being the most common.


Making sure to include plenty of healthy calories to your diet as you need 300 extra calories per day (600 if you are expecting twins) while pregnant [15]. The taste buds also start to form [3] with the spinal cord also continuing to develop during the 8th week [4]. Having the symptoms of morning sickness generally indicates a healthy pregnancy [11]; however, it is also normal to have no symptoms at this stage.
The tiny tail visible last week is almost gone along with the thin webbing of the fingers and toes [3].


Your baby has actually started moving this week, but it is still too early for you to feel it.
This is also the week when the blood type of your baby is determined and the liver takes over the job of producing the blood cells (previously done by the yolk sac) [7].
