Your baby is the size of a medium sized onion, nine inches in length and passing the pound and a half mark approx 0.7kg. Later this Week, blood vessels will also develop in your baby’s lungs, bringing them one step closer to full maturity. But at 25 Weeks pregnant, those lungs are still working to mature. Though they are already beginning to develop surfactant, a substance that will help them expand with oxygen after the baby is born, the lungs are still too undeveloped to sufficiently send oxygen to the bloodstream and release carbon dioxide when baby exhales.
