thirtieth week  

She is now using the four senses: vision, hearing, taste and touch and recognises her mother's voice. There is still space enough for her to straighten up, as she puts her hand to her mouth to suck her thumb. Her eyes are open, her eyelids are fringed with lashes and she often moves her eyes as if searching for something to see. The amniotic fluid is reduced by half to allow her room to grow. She is gaining weight quickly and by the end of the seventh month may weigh 4 pounds.
