By the 10. week of pregnancy all the cardinal organs of the foetus are formed and they start their coordinated operation. The brain starts to develop with extraordinary speed: 250000 nerve cells are created in the brain of the embryo! If the baby is a boy then the testicles start to produce a hormone called testosterone. Their body from the outside changes continuously, most of the joints are formed: shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees and the ankles as well as the fingers and toes. This week is a great milestone in pregnancy in many aspects: the end of the week marks the end of the embryonic phase and the foetal phase starts. This also means that inborn disorders are not likely to form after this phase.

The length of the rapidly growing foetus is appr. 8 cm and weighs appr. 28 gramms. It looks perfectly like a human. The midriff and lungs are still developing. Vocal cords for sound creation are developing in this stage. Genitals can theoretically be seen, but in practice they can probably be seen in ultrasound on week 16-18. The bowels have already migrated to the body of the foetus from the umbilical cord. Liver starts to produce bile, and the pancreas already produces insulin.
