Your Body at Week 14

Lots of changings are happening in your body this week. You have welcomed a new organ into your body. The placenta. Your baby is attached to this by its umbilical cord. This is what pumps blood, oxygen, nutrients and hormones to your baby. It is firmly attached to the womb and it will leave your body after birth.
