This weeks photo - 29+1!

I notice no difference in bump size this week - and my bump has also been much less itchy as well so there probably was no real big growth. But here is this weeks photo!:

What happened this week:
Blood volume has doubled by now; iron requirements are high. Baby's eyelids open and eyelashes are present. 27 weeks' gestation 29 weeks from your LMP. Foetus length: about 26cm crown to rump (35cm or 13¾ inches head to toe). Baby's lungs are developed enough to breathe air fairly efficiently but they would tire rapidly. baby has eyelashes!
