At 8 weeks pregnant, your baby now has webbed fingers and toes, and is about the size of a pumpkin seed. Additional developments in your baby include the formation of eyelids, the tongue, and intestines. When you are 8 weeks pregnant, you will most likely have your first prenatal doctor's visit. Symptoms that may occur during the eighth week of pregnancy include acne, fatigue, and an expanding waistline.

8 Weeks Pregnant: An Overview

When you are 8 weeks pregnant, you will most likely have your first prenatal doctor's visit. At this time, the doctor can confirm your pregnancy and make sure that there are no potential problems. Your blood pressure, urine, and blood will also be tested.
 
Your baby is now approximately 0.56 to 0.8 inches long, from crown to rump. That is equivalent to the size of a pumpkin seed. He or she weighs about 0.1 ounces.
