Prenatal Development at 8 Weeks:
The unborn child now swims and moves gracefully inside the protective amniotic sac. Every organ is present. The stomach produces digestive juices and the liver makes blood cells. The kidneys are beginning to function and taste buds are forming. Brain waves can be measured. The heart beats sturdily. The baby's eyelids and palms of the hands are sensitive to the touch. The baby is about 1.5 inches long now.
