WEEK OF MAY 20 (Ninth week of development)
TWEETS
On Monday, May 20th, Baby Chris is 8 weeks old, and, in embryological terms, now begins to be called a “fetus” rather than an “embryo.” Whether embryo, fetus, infant, toddler, teen, in all stages he is a human person. See more at babychris.org #facts #prolife
At 8 weeks: Baby Chris is now the size of a cherry tomato, has more than 4000 body parts routinely found in newborns and adults, and possesses about 1 billion specialized cells, forming nearly all components of all body systems! See more at babychris.org #facts #prolife
At 8 weeks: Baby Chris is beginning to perform occasional breathing motions. Also his eyelids begin to fuse together and completely cover his eyes. See more at babychris.org #prolife #facts

WEEK OF MAY 13 (Eighth week of development)
TWEETS
In a developing pre-born baby tendons attach leg muscles to bones, and knee joints appear around 7 to 7½ weeks. See more at babychris.org #lifedevelopment #prolife #facts
The development of a preborn human is amazing, by 7½ weeks, the hands can be brought together, as can the feet. See more at babychris.org #facts #prolife #life
Some say that a growing, developing embryo is not sentient yet the embryo kicks, and will jump if startled. See more at babychris.org #embryo #facts #prolife
When a baby is growing in her mothers womb at 7 to 7½ weeks, nephrons, the basic filtration units in the kidneys, begin to form. Life begins at conception! See more at babychris.org #embryo #facts #prolife


WEEK OF MAY 6 (Seventh week of development)
TWEETS
The hands and feet change dramatically between 6 and 7 weeks as separate fingers and toes begin to emerge. At 6 weeks the hand plates develop a subtle flattening between the digital rays. By 6 weeks, 2 days the hand takes on a polygon shape... see more at babychris.org Baby Chris Week 7
Did you know that by 7 weeks, the ovaries appear in the female embryo. In the male embryo, a gene on the Y-chromosome produces a substance causing the testes to begin to differentiate see more life development facts at babychris.org
By 7 weeks of development the immune system is maturing, as evidenced by the presence of B-lymphocytes in the liver. After birth and relocation away from the protection of the womb, they will produce antibodies to fight infection... see more at babychris.org

WEEK OF APRIL 29 (Sixth week of development)
TWEETS
In a developing #human person the diaphragm (di’a-fram), the primary muscle used in breathing, is largely formed by 6 weeks. This growing person is so much more than a clump of cells. See more at babychris.org
diaphragm
By 6 weeks of development in a pre-born #human person a portion of the brain called the cerebral cortex appears. Nerve cells, or neurons, in the spinal cord now begin to develop specialized connections. So much more than a clump if cells. Learn more babychris.org
The development of a pre-born #human person is so fascinating. Did you know that by 6 weeks the external ear begins to take shape, and the opening of the ear canal becomes visible. Salivary glands also appear inside the mouth. Learn more babychris.org
A 6 week embryo is not a "product of conception". Blood formation is actively underway in the liver & contributes to the liver’s bright red color. The rapidly growing liver also begins producing lymphocytes, a key part of the immune system - see more babychris.org


WEEK OF APRIL 22 (Fifth week of development)
TWEETS
By 4 weeks the clear amnion surrounds the #embryo in a fluid-filled sac. This sterile liquid, called amniotic (am-nē-ot'ik) fluid, provides the embryo with protection from injury. If an embryo is not human why is there a natural protection from injury? See more at babychris.org
With #heartbeatbill being passed in many states think about this fact: The heart beats about 113 times per minute. The heart changes color as blood enters & leaves its chambers with each beat. The heart will beat 54 million times before birth. See more @babychris.org
In the developing embryo rapid brain growth is evidenced by the changing appearance of the forebrain, midbrain, and hindbrain. It doesn’t take a scientist to know if the embryo has a brain it’s more than a blob of tissues. See more at babychris.org
At 4-5 weeks cerebral hemispheres appear, gradually becoming the largest parts of the brain. Functions controlled by the cerebral hemispheres include thought, learning, memory, speech, vision, hearing, voluntary movement, & problem-solving. See more at babychris.org


WEEK OF APRIL 15 (Fourth week of development)
