Your Baby This Week
Your baby now weighs about a 100 grams and measures to about four and a half inches. The little heart, which is still beating twice as fast as yours, is also now pumping out a lot of blood every day. The amount of blood being pumped will steadily increase throughout the duration of your pregnancy. A few weeks prior to this, your baby had learned how to move the arms about and even learned how to clench and unclench the fist. At this very moment your baby might very well be playing with the umbilical cord and gently tugging at it too. The umbilical cord in turn is also growing stronger and thicker day by day. The placenta is also growing as it needs to house the blood vessels which are responsible for exchanging nutrients and oxygen between your baby's body and yours. As your baby's backbone is developing swiftly, he is significantly able to straighten out his back and neck more. At this stage of your pregnancy, your baby's nervous system is also taking purposeful developmental strides. Your baby's urinary and circulatory systems are also working at full gear.
