Fetal Development   ~  ~  ~  ~  ~  ~

 Conception is the moment at which the sperm penetrates the ovum. Once fertilized it is called a zygote, until it reaches the uterus 3-4 days later. 

When fertilization occurs, the baby's features, including sex, hair and eye color, have already been determined.

9 Weeks:(7 weeks after fertilization)  At this age, the baby's heart has been beating for one month.

16 Weeks: (14 weeks after fertilization) At this age, the baby reacts to loud noises.

22 Weeks: (20 weeks after fertilization) At this age, the baby's eyelashes can be seen.
