Trimester Time Line

We know it’s important to for you to understand the development of your baby. The staff at Sweet Pea Baby Imaging perform ultrasounds as early as six weeks into your pregnancy so that you are able to bond with your baby through every step of her or his development.

    At 8 weeks, the embryo begins to develop into a fetus: All major organs have begun to form. The baby's heart begins to beat. The arms and legs grow longer. Fingers and toes have begun to form. Sex organs begin to form. The face begins to develop features.

    At about week 12 in your baby's development: The nerves and muscles begin to work together. Your baby can make a fist. The external sex organs show if your baby is a boy or girl. Eyelids close to protect the developing eyes. They will not open again until week 28. Head growth has slowed, and your baby is about 3 inches long, and weighs almost an ounce.

    As your body changes in the second trimester, your baby continues to develop: The musculoskeletal system continues to form. Skin begins to form and is nearly translucent. Meconium develops in your baby's intestinal tract. Your baby begins sucking motions with the mouth (sucking reflex). Your baby is about 4 to 5 inches long and weighs almost 3 ounces.

    At about 20 weeks in the second trimester, your baby's developing: Your baby is more active. You might feel movement or kicking. Your baby is covered by fine, feathery hair called lanugo and a waxy protective coating called vernix. Eyebrows, eyelashes, fingernails, and toenails have formed. Your baby can even scratch itself. Your baby can hear and swallow. Your baby is now about 6 inches long and weighs about 9 ounces.

Hair begins to grow on your baby's head. The lungs are formed, but do not yet work. Your baby has a regular sleep cycle. But you know this! Your baby stores fat and weighs about 1½ pounds, and is 12 inches long.

    At 32 weeks in the third trimester, your baby's development continues: Your baby's bones are soft but fully formed. Movements and kicking increase. The eyes can open and close. Lungs are not fully formed, but practice "breathing" movements occur. Your baby's body begins to store vital minerals, such as iron and calcium. Lanugo (fine hair) begins to fall off. Your baby is gaining about ½ pound a week, weighs about 4 to 4½ pounds, and is about 15 to 17 inches long.
