Although his head is still larger than the rest of his body, his torso starts to lengthen and straighten, and limbs are long and thin. This week also separate fingers of the hands and feet (before were United by a membrane, like the fingers of ducks or frogs).
Much remains to make it breathe on their own, but already his nose has open nostrils. Your ears will take its final form and there are hair follicles, where his hair come in the following months.
Your little mouth has a well-formed tongue and palate. The diaphragm also begins to develop, and soon your baby will have hiccups. Once you can feel its movements, in a few weeks, you can also feel when you have hiccups.
