How Big is Your Baby?

Now, your little champ can respond to external stimuli although you may not be able to sense it. For instance, if your abdomen is poked, the baby wiggles. The eyes and ears will shift to correct positions and the baby can make facial expressions such as smile, frown, squint, etc. This week, your baby’s thin skin will be covered by ultra fine soft hair called lanugo which will disappear soon after birth.
