The 9-Month Journey

7 Months

Things are getting a bit cramped in there, so your unborn baby needs to stay in the fetal position. Even though there's not a lot of space, his kicks and pushes don't let up. By now you probably notice he has a regular, daily pattern of activity and rest.

This month the eyelids open for the first time (his pupils even grow larger or smaller in response to brightness), and the lanugo is beginning to disappear. Eyelashes and the hair on his head are growing, though some babies are born bald. Now and until birth the fetus is also fattening up, which makes his skin smoother and pinker.
