Your Baby:


Your babys skin will continue to mature. Your babys digestive system is also undergoing unique changes . Her intestines will slowly start to contract and relax from this week onwards and your baby can swallow and absorb fluids via the amniotic fluid. Your amniotic fluid changes day to day, based on what you’ve eaten. Since your baby is swallowing the fluid, she gets a “taste” of what you are eating! Your babys reproductive system continues to develop. In a boy, his testes begin to descend. In a girl, her ovaries and uterus are now in place and her vagina develops. She already has all of eggs she will need for her own reproductive life.
