What the baby looks like this week: She weighs about 3½ pounds and measures a little over 16 inches. From this week on, she will continue to gain around ½ pound a week until shortly before birth. She can now process information from all five senses. By now, your baby's lungs are the only system not fully mature. She can turn his head from side to side, and his arms, legs, and body are beginning to plump out as needed fat accumulates underneath his skin.
