Baby Ramey's Progress
The growth spurt continues! Baby's weight is between .01 and .015 kg (0.33 and 0.5 ounces) and he or she is at least 2.5 inches (6 cm) long. At this point, length is a better indication of growth development than weight, so that's the measurement you need to pay attention to.
Most basic body structures are already formed, so from this point forward it's a matter of growth. By now, your baby's heart is beating and you can hear it via an ultra-sensitive Doppler ultrasound. Bones are starting to form, fingers and toes are separating, and nails are continuing to grow. Tufts of hair may even be starting to form! Your baby's brain is also at work, with the pituitary gland churning out hormones as the nervous system continues to develop. The amount of amniotic fluid is also on the rise, increasing to about 1.5 ounces. Your baby continues to move, but you still can't feel it.
