– Baby’s height is 3.5 inches and weighs 1.5 ounces
– Your baby’s posture is improving, his neck is becoming more distinct and head more upright
– Baby’s arms and legs are growing to the length that is proportional to the rest of the body
– As your baby’s brain cells are growing and working he/she can use his/her facial muscles in making expressions
– The baby can frown, squint and react to external stimulus
If you peek inside the womb you might see the baby sucking his thumb
– At this period, a downy, ultra-fine hair called lanugo begins to develop that covers the fetus to keep him cozy and warm
– Once your baby accumulates some insulating fat most of the lanugo will shed
– Your baby’s brain develops into two distinct halves the left and right hemisphere
