On Monday, The baby is the size of a small tomato.
The face, palms of the hands, and soles of the feet now sense and respond to light touch.
The mouth opens and closes, and the tongue moves.
Swallowing amniotic fluid begins.
The baby sighs, stretches, and moves the head.
Baby girls have early reproductive cells in their ovaries.
Thumb sucking begins.
Grasping objects begins.
If touched near the mouth, the face now turns toward the side touched.
Vocal cords are developing.
