is now nearly 6 inches long. Her body
has filled immeasurably. It has begun
to crowd its living quarters. Her head,
neck and spine curve to follow the circular
uterine cavity. She now occupies all the

thin transparent layer of skin begins
to replace the temporary protective membrane.
The eyes are still closed and her nose,
eyes and lips and ears are shaping up.
