Fetal Fact of the Day

29 weeks - My baby now weighs around 2.5 pounds/1.1 kilograms and measures about 15 inches/38 centimetres from head to toe.

In boys, testicles descend from near the kidneys through the groin en route to the scrotum. In girls, the clitoris is relatively prominent because it's not yet covered by the still-small labia. These will grow to cover it in the last few weeks before birth.

My baby's head is getting bigger, and brain growth is very rapid at this time. Nearly all babies react to sound by 30 weeks.
