Your Baby At Week 4
This week, or 5 days after fertilization the cells within the blastocyst start to take on different roles. Your placenta has started to develop, and the three distinct layers of cells form in the embryo. The first layer is the digestive system, liver and lungs. The second layer will form the heart, muscles, kidneys, reproductive organs and bones. The third layer is your baby's nervous system, hair, skin and eyes.
