Fact #19 for this week and we are almost halfway done!

by | Jan 30, 2023

Week 19: Around this time is when the pregnant mother should start to feel movement inside her womb! The little one can also start to hear voices by this time. The baby is about the size of a pomegranate.

To protect their skin from amniotic fluid, the baby will start to form a thin, waxy substance called Vernix Caseosa. The translucent look of their skin is starting to lessen now! The baby even starts to develop hair on her scalp. If the baby is a girl, her ovaries contain primitive egg cells by this point. #40weeks40facts
