24 weeks pregnant: your baby

week 24

Your baby at 24 weeks of pregnancy

In the twenty-fourth week of pregnancy your baby weighs approximately 1 ¼ lbs./455 g. and measures 8 ½ in./21 cm.

Your baby’s hearing is getting quite good and his little face is almost fully formed to what it will look like at birth. Also, he is starting to plump up a bit and grow those chubby cheeks that will probably get pinched more than he will appreciate.

Did you know…right now your baby’s hair is actually white, because there is no pigmentation in it yet. Don’t worry he won’t come out looking like Benjamin Button?

This week is about the time when women with gestational diabetes are diagnosed. It is important to get checked for this, as left untreated it can cause difficulty at birth.

What’s happening to your body this week?
