Fetal Size: Length, 8 inches, crown to rump; weight, almost 1 pound.
Fetal Development Milestones: Baby-to-be is adding fat tissue and gaining weight. Rapid eye movements (REM) are now beginning.

Images of the baby's entire body are difficult now that he's more than 8 inches in length. He's about to experience a dramatic weight gain in the coming weeks. For now, he's still relatively thin.
