Fig. 46. Outline of a Foetus 22 mm long
And at the end of the 2nd month of development. (After Broman.)
At the end of the 8th week the crownrump diameter measures about 25 mm. (1 inch). The changes of this week are a continuation of those we have just described (Fig. 46) ; the nasal and maxillary processes have fused to form the upper face ; the upper lip is completed, but the palatal processes have not yet separated the buccal from the nasal cavities. The cerebral vesicles are expanding rapidly backwards ; the neck is being differentiated and the limbs are making progress. The rudiment of the external genital organs is apparent, but as yet gives no clue to sex. The intestinal loop lies within the root of the umbilical cord. Henceforward, until the end of gestation, the chief changes are those of growth.
