Computer graphics image of a human foetus after 14 weeks, surrounded 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. Sexual differentiation has occurred; external male genitalia may be seen. The umbilical cord, connecting the foetus to the maternal circulation through the placenta, appears as a fine pink thread.
