Your baby this week
This week, your baby is now around the size of an avocado, or 4.5 inches and weighs around 100 grams. In the next three weeks he/she will go through a tremendous growth spurt by doubling his/her weight and adding centimetres to his/her length.
Your baby's facial muscles are now developed well enough to allow a variety of expressions. He or she is now most probably listening to your voice, thanks to tiny bones forming in his/her ears.
The skeletal system is continuing to develop as more calcium is deposited on the bones.
Your body this week
- Bigger busoms
