Size of baby: honeydew melon. She could be as tall as 20 inches and could weigh in at about 51/2 pounds.
What baby is up to: She is gaining about a half a pound weekly. Now, her hearing is fully developed, and she responds best to high-pitched noises. Her brain development continues at a mind-boggling pace, making her a little on the top-heavy side. She has turned to be in a head-down, bottoms-up position in my pelvis by now. Her head is still soft and will remain that way throughout labor to make it an easier decent for birth.
