A baby’s heart begins pumping after about 22 days from fertilization. If a woman has an ultrasound at 6 weeks, the heart rhythm can be measured at that time. By 9-10 weeks from the first day of your Last Monthly Period (LMP), the “little one,” i.e. embryo, has already developed fingers. Rather amazingly, such a tiny being can actually hiccup. At 12-13 weeks LMP, unborn babies are forming unique fingerprints … those that are unique to that person for life. Nearly 54% of abortions occur from 7-12 weeks when a baby has a developing nose, mouth, ears, intestines, brain waves, touch response, etc.
