Fetal Development Pictures | 25 Weeks
Fetal Development at 25 weeks:
mouthMouthThe muscles around the mouth are some of the most important, and these are maturing quickly. Now your baby can open and close her mouth, suck amniotic fluid and yawn.
umbilical cordUmbilical CordThe digestive tract is beginning to form, including the bulge of intestine that will grow into the umbilical cord to connect your baby to the placenta.
respiratory systemRespiratory SystemNow that the blood vessels in the lungs have developed enough to take in air and the nostrils have opened, your baby is much closer to breathing air on his own.
What's happening this week:
Baby measures about 8 3/4 inches from crown to rump, and his body is straightening as the components of his spine develop. The muscles are advancing, too: your baby can curl his fingers to grab things or make a fist, and together with his rapidly developing nerves, his body can react more quickly to stimuli.
