Week 15 update: The invisible man

This week the fetus is around 4 ½”. Its skin is translucent so you see its ribs, retinas, and blood vessels. Its body is covered in hair that grows in a pattern like fingerprints, and hair is growing on its head. The mechanisms that will eventually allow it to hear are starting to develop. In a couple of weeks the little monkey will be able to hear us.
