Weeks 9-12 - Gestational Age / Weeks 7-10 - Fetal Age

Posted : Monday, January 01, 1900

** Gestational age is the age of the pregnancy from the last normal menstrual period (LMP) and fetal age is the actual age of the growing baby.

The fetus has grown to about 3 inches in length and weighs about an ounce. The genitalia have clearly formed into male or female, but still could not be seen clearly on an ultrasound. The eyelids close and will not reopen until the 28th week of pregnancy. The fetus can make a fist and the buds for baby teeth appear. The head is nearly half the size of the entire fetus.
