The baby's body is already formed at ten weeks gestation and resembles that of humans. It is 3 to 4 cm long, has a large head, and the arms and legs have already lengthened. It is also possible to intuit its facial features: the eyes have formed, although they are closed by the eyelids, the nose is more prominent and the ears and mouth have also formed. Finally, the baby can now move its limbs and open and close its hands.
