Baby development

The external genitals continue their development. If I’m male, the scrotum begins to take on a recognizable form and if I'm a girl, the labia does the same.

It's too early to see what sex I am with an ultrasound. I hardly know myself. The nub that will be a penis or clitoris is now the same size as it would be for boys and girls. If you are curious about my gender, you’ll have to be patient and wait a little while longer.

All of my organs are in place but they are not fully developed. This means that the risk of congenital malformations is significantly less after this time. The most critical time of my development is now over, but please, keep in mind that I'm still very much affected by what my mother eats and drinks. Hopefully, she ensures I get what I need nutritionally and is careful about not ingesting things that might be harmful to me.
