The delicate skin of your baby needs to be protected from the amniotic fluid that will now continue to envelop her for the rest of your pregnancy. This is best done by the sticky white and cream like substance which began to be secreted in the earlier week and is now completely formed.

The recent development of brain centres which control the five senses have already developed so it is scarcely surprising that your baby is more aware of the surrounding environment and begins to respond to senses like touch and light.



As your baby continues to grow, so does your uterus. When you visit your doctor this week, she will measure the height of your uterus which will be at the level of your belly button. The rate of growth of your uterus in the weeks to come will be quick. Statistics indicate that from this week onwards, the uterus grows at the rate of one centimetre per week.
