As you read the following information, keep in mind that most people do
not realize that they are pregnant until between 4 and 8 weeks.
CONCEPTION - sperm and egg join to form one cell. The genetic information in this single cell is equal to 50 times the amount of information contained in the Encyclopedia Britannica. Everything about this new person has already been determined.
~ 7 DAYS - the new life implants itself in the lining of the uterus and begins to draw nourishment.
21 DAYS - the heart begins to beat.
40 DAYS - brain waves are detectable.
42 DAYS - the skeleton is fully formed, and the baby can reflexively respond to stimulus.
7 WEEKS - the baby moves.
8 WEEKS - the baby is about 1 inch long. All the body parts are now in place. There is a heartbeat, brainwaves, stomach juices, kidney function, nervous system function. This is NOT just a lump of tissue.
(THIS IS WHEN MANY PEOPLE ARE JUST FINDING OUT THEY ARE PREGNANT!)
9 WEEKS - the baby will bend a finger around an object placed in the hand.
12 WEEKS - the baby sleeps and has a regular exercise program.
(THIS IS THE POINT BY WHICH MOST ABORTIONS OCCUR.)
