For sure, your baby grows more at length than at width. Imagine his/her small head – its diameter is about 6 cm, while the length of his/her whole body is about 26 cm.
His/her delicate skin becomes thicker and is not so transparent. It now can completely cover the veins below. The sweat glands that start to generate transparent adipose substance come into existence. This adipose substance will come to the surface and will cover the skin.
Even closed with the eyelids, the baby’s eyes continue their development. The iris pigmentation is completed and a few weeks after the delivery you will be able to see what the colour of his/her eyes has been in your womb!
