Pregnancy Week 24: Baby Growth

Your little one is now about a foot long and weighs more than 500 grams. Most of her/ his vital organs are almost developed but the lungs are not fully mature yet.

Your baby’s brain is starting to grow rapidly now and the neurons are making thousands of connections. These will contribute to your baby’s thoughts, feelings, emotions and memories. Imagine, so much is going on in such a tiny little brain!

Those little taste buds are continuing to develop and so are the lungs. Those tiny lungs are growing "branches" of the respiratory "tree" as well as cells that produce surfactant, a substance that will help those air sacs inflate once in the outside world. Your baby’s skin is still thin and translucent, but that will change soon too.
