Week 12 {Development}



Dramatic enhancements are happening this week: Reflexes. Baby Suarez's fingers will soon begin to open and close, his toes will curl, his eye muscles will clench, and his mouth will make sucking movements. In fact, if Mommy prods her abdomen, Baby Suarez will squirm in response, although Mommy won't be able to feel it. His intestines, which have grown so fast that they protrude into the umbilical cord, will start to move into his abdominal cavity about now, and his kidneys will begin excreting urine into his bladder. From crown to rump, Baby Suarez is just over two inches long (about the size of a lime) and weighs half an ounce.
