By week 10 the beginnings of all of your baby's vital organs have formed. The embryonic tail has disappeared completely, and fully separated fingers and
toes have formed. The bones of the skeleton are now forming. Your baby's eyelids are more developed, and the eyes look closed. The outer ears are starting to assume their final form. Your baby is also starting to develop buds for teeth.
Your baby's brain is now starting to grow more quickly. This week almost 250,000 new neurons are being produced in his or her brain every minute.
If your baby is a boy, his testes will start producing the male hormone testosterone this week.
