Baby is the size of a large plum! Bigger than a lime and growing more every day!
All that baby’s been up to this week:
– Baby’s ears are migrating towards their final position at the side of her head.
– Baby is already building up the waste that will help make up her first poop.
– The placenta has developed and is supplying baby with oxygen.
– Baby is soon going to start developing lanugo, hair that will cover her during much of pregnancy.
– Baby’s lower body continues to grow, helping her catch up with her very large head.
– Baby’s bones are developing, though most of the development and hardening will take place later.
– Baby is probably developing fingerprints right now.
All that’s been going on with me:
