What the baby looks like this week: H
e is as big as a teddy bear :) Eyelids (which have been fused since 11 or 12 weeks) can now open and close.This week, he weighs almost 2 pounds and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. He's sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, his brain is very active now. While his lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if he were to be born now. —baby's brain tissue and neurons are all developing at a rapid pace. His brain waves are now firing away just like those of a newborn baby.
