Fetal Size: Length, 10 1/2 inches, crown to rump; total length 16 3/4 inches. Weight, 2 3/4 pounds.
Fetal Development Milestones: Your little one's muscles are maturing. She'll continue to gain weight over the coming weeks.
What You're Seeing: This week, your baby-to-be's bones are hardening, and her muscles strengthening. In fact, you may have noticed from her kicks and jabs that she's growing stronger each week. Bones appear bright white on a sonogram. Although you can't see it in this image, your baby has probably been practicing his breathing movements this week, though his lungs still need more time to mature.
