Update on Baby Ramey’s Progress
Baby's now the size of a lime!
Your little one's heart has been beating furiously for weeks, but it's only just become loud enough for your health care provider to hear with a special listening device called a Doppler. You'll be able to hear it too! A fetus's heart beats twice as fast as yours, anywhere between 120 to 140 beats per minute. (Don't worry if your provider can't pick up the beat yet. Your fetus may be lying in a position that muffles the sound.) If you're like many women, hearing the rapid thump-thump of your little one's heart will be your favorite part of the prenatal visits. In addition to perfecting its beat, the heart has become a proper four-chambered structure over the past month, although some of the dividing walls won't be complete until after birth.
Skin is in. A fine layer of skin has been forming over the fetus's body during the past few weeks. Now, a specialized layer develops into what will become the fingernails and toenails.
Measuring up. Your little one has grown quite a bit since last week—the crown-to-rump length is just over 2 inches. The fetus's head alone is nearly half the length of the body, which shows you how rapidly the brain is growing. Genius in the making!
