Height: 7.4 cmWeight: 45 g
My body is covered in thin, translucent skin with little tufts of hair called lanugo.
The hair protects the fragile skin and helps keep me warm. My joints are developed and I can bend and stretch my legs, arms, fingers and toes. My eyebrows emerge and the hair on my head is on the up.
I can make swallowing gestures and I am practising the movements of breathing; my nervous system has also started to work. I'm getting stronger with every day that passes and my movements are less jerky. In the intestines, I now produce meconium, which is waste that will be my first stool after birth. The placenta has now completely taken over and the yolk sac has disappeared.
