Baby development

The intestines have matured and should now be able to receive breast milk.

My taste buds have also evolved meaning depending on what mother eats I can also get a sense of it from the amniotic fluid. My coordination skills have improved and I can hold my feet and direct my hands into my mouth.

I’ve added more subcutaneous fat, but the skin is not filled yet. My eyelashes have become long and the muscles in my arms and legs are significantly stronger. If I were born now, I would stand a good chance of survival. However, every week leads to significant development, so I'd love to stick around in my mother's belly for just a little longer.
