Baby development

I can now perform rhythmic movements with my lungs, about 35-45 breaths per minute.

My heart and liver load up with nutrition that I can use during labour, especially in the event of any oxygen deficiency. This should also serve as a reserve for the first few days before the production of breast milk begins properly. Breast milk production usually happens about the third day after delivery. Some babies start eating immediately when they are born, but not to worry if I don’t appear hungry in the first few days - I’ve got my nutritional and energy reserves.

My brain continues its development but won’t be fully developed in the womb. Did you know that it continues its development until I'm two years old!?
