I get a weekly e-mail about how the baby is growing at this stage in the game. Here are some of the stats from this week's e-mail. At 11 inches, (the length of a spaghetti squash) and almost 1 pound, your baby is starting to look like a miniature newborn. Her lips, eyelids, and eyebrows are becoming more distinct, and she's even developing tiny tooth buds beneath her gums. Her eyes have formed, but the irises (the colored part of the eye) still lack pigment. If you could see inside, you'd be able to spot the deep wrinkles on her skin, which she'll sport until she adds a padding of fat to fill them in.
