FOETUS

A developing unborn offspring of an animal that gives birth to its young (as opposed to laying eggs). From approximately three months after conception the offspring take on a recognisable form (all parts in seat, etc.). In human development, the period after the seventh or eighth week of pregnancy is the foetal period.
