Thyroid gland has matured and your baby begins producing hormones which will be used throughout his or her life.
In boys, the prostate gland develops
In girls, the ovaries move from the abdomen to the pelvis
Your little one may have learned to suck his thumb by this point!
Your child’s bones are getting harder and stronger by the day!
Your baby’s skin is very transparent still
Lanugo (very fine hair) covers the baby’s body and will continue to grow until 26 weeks gestational age – Generally this will be shed prior to birth. Its purpose is to help protect baby’s skin while in all that water!
Your baby is 3.42 inches (8.7cm) long and weighs about 1.52 ounces (43 grams) – approximately the weight of a letter!
My name is Lisa, I am a 30 something fun loving girl, living in Baltimore, MD. I’m married to a fantastic guy named Pete who is the best husband ever. I work for a Travel Agency focusing on Disney Trips. I have a wonderful niece named Alyssa and a sweet nephew names Austin who I just adore. I enjoy traveling, spending time with friends and family, taking pictures, cooking, being online, movies, planning and anything pink or purple. I’ve been blogging since January 2002.
