Eight weeks after conception, the embryo loses its reptilian appearance to become a fetus. It measures about 1 inch and weighs 0.07 ounce. At the end of the first quarter, the fetus is about 3.5 inches and weighs 1.6 ounces: the first hair is appearing, fingernails are present, the face becomes human but the skin is still very transparent. In most European countries, abortion is legal during the first quarter, 12 to 14 weeks (24 in the Netherlands or when the mother starts feeling the first movements of the fetus).
