Until this time the surface of your baby’s developing brain has appeared smooth. Now the brain forms characteristic grooves and indentations on the surface to make room for all the nerve cells.
It is now known that the baby reacts to light. The baby actually holds its hands in front of its eyes when hit by the light.
Your baby now sleeps for longer, uninterrupted periods, sometimes even compatible with your own sleep pattern.
Its skin is changing and becoming less wrinkly, as well as thickening and becoming more opaque.
If your baby was delivered now, it would have a pretty good chance of surviving. It’s amazing. And it’s truly a relief to know.
Find out what happens next by looking forward in the timeline.
