Week 24

Week 23 baby bump

Week 24- last week of Month 5

Your baby is filling out this week. Part of your weight gain goes straight to helping him gain weight, too. Since he's still on the scrawny side, his skin wrinkles on his body, but he looks like a miniature version of what you'll see on delivery day. His face has formed, ears are in place, and eyes are complete (although his lids are still closed). He has eyelashes, fingernails, and may be growing hair, too. Rapid eye movements (REM) are beginning, too.

This week your baby weighs around one and one-half pounds and measures almost eight and one-half inches (crown to rump).
