The baby now weighs approximately 7 ounces and will increase its weight more than 15 times between now and birth!
The baby’s skin is wrinkled but (s)he is slowly losing his reddish skin color. (S)he is getting more hair on his/her head. (S)he can also observe sounds now such as my heartbeat. The baby reacts to sounds from outside – loud or sudden noises may startle him. From now on (s)he will also recognise my voice. If anyone else speaks directly to my tummy, the baby will hear and eventually recognise their voices too!
