One of the questions that you are sure to ask now in the fourteenth week of pregnancy and you will do in the coming weeks is how your baby will be, who he will look like or what his eyes will look like.
Everything was decided at the time of fertilization,
when the 23 chromosomes of the ovum joined the 23 chromosomes of the sperm. Therefore, the chromosomes always go in pairs, one inherited from the mother and the other from the father. In this way half of your child will be yours and the other half of your father. The laws of genetics are complicated but, for example if your eyes are blue and those of the father brown, there is more chance that your son has brown eyes since it is a dominant character, even so there can always be surprises.
