Belly Shot:

What the baby looks like this week: Is a tad bigger than last week! The pancreas is kicking into gear sometime around this week, and blood vessels continue to develop in the lungs. Lung development is a Big Thing right now, since babies born around 24 weeks gestation can often survive outside the womb. Her sense of movement well developed by now, your baby can feel you dance.
