The baby’s eyes open and close and baby sleeps and wakes at regular intervals and may suck a finger or thumb. This week your baby’s brain is taking a wrinkled appearance because of its rapid growth. Most of the lanugo has disappeared at this point and your baby may have a full head of hair by now. The fetus is now about 46cm long and weighs about 1 – 1.2 kg. You may notice the shape of an elbow or heel through your abdomen – the fetus is too big to move around much now, but can kick strongly.
