So much is happening so fast during these important weeks. By the end of the second month, your baby’s arms and legs have begun to form. All the major internal organs, including the kidneys, heart and liver, are developing. Your baby’s circulatory system is functioning, and digestive and respiratory systems are beginning to form. Your baby’s facial features are becoming more defined. Overall, your baby is still only about one-half inch long.
