Increased levels of HCG hormone also cause menstruation to stop, and are usually used as a sign of early pregnancy.

At the sixth week, a face with a large circle for the eyes, nose, mouth, ears and lower jaw and throat has begun to form. And the fetus has begun to look curved like the letter C.

In the seventh week, the fetus begins to form hands and feet, and the uterus has now doubled in size.
