Baby development

I am working hard on developing key functions such as blinking, coughing, sucking, hiccuping and perhaps most importantly - breathing.

At this time, I have also begun to assume the position in preparation for delivery - that is, with my head down. However, don’t be alarmed if that isn’t the case; it simply means I’m taking advantage of the space I have to move about. There is still time.

If I'm a girl, my labia is still small and doesn’t yet cover the clitoris, but in the coming weeks, that is likely to change. If I'm a boy, the testicles will begin descending into the scrotum. My lungs are so far developed that should a premature birth occur now, I would be able to breathe air with some assistance.
