At eight weeks a fetus is about the size of a pinto bean. The ears are forming at this time. They folds are the eyelids are in the making. The eyes are still very far apart on each side of the head. The tip of the nose is even visible at this time. The baby’s torso is straightening and getting longer. You can now see fingers and toes. Instead of tiny buds, it now actually has elbows and outstretched arms.
