Week 24

Size: Papaya or size of a standard letter.
What baby is up to: Her see-through skin is gradually becoming more opaque, and it's got a new pink glow, due to the small capillaries that have recently formed.  Her weekly weight gain is now about 6 ounces.  Much of that weight is coming from accumulating baby fat, as well as from growing organs, bones, and muscle.  By now, her tiny face is almost fully formed, with a complete with a full set of eyelashes and eyebrows and a good sprinkling of hair on her head, (which I think she will have a full head of hair and rather curly when it all grows out). Her hair is snow white right now since there is no pigment in her hair just yet.
