I did a brief search and I won't post links because I hope that someone who is knowledgeble will come and post facts on the development of a fetus.
From what I could glean the skeleton of a fetus may begin to develop as early as 10 weeks gestation. (first trimester)
By week 15 the bone and marrow may develop.
As for the other question, I too wondered if there might have been some mumification due to the elements there in NM of not only the adult victims but the fetus as well.
It will be interesting to learn if someone can post that information."Three things in human life are important: The first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind." ~ Henry James
