The human foetus after 14 weeks, suspended in the fluid-filled amniotic sac. The foetus is recognisable as the ultimate infant, although the head is still proportionally large. Facial features are evident, the eyes have migrated from the sides of the head & the nose, mouth and ears formed. The upper limbs are further developed than the lower ones: the wrist, forearm & fingers are obvious. The ribs are visible. The umbilical cord (bottom) connects the foetal bloodstream with its mother's through the placenta, a large organ embedded into the uterine wall in which nourisment (eg oxygen) & waste products are exchanged.
