Your baby is continuing to gain weight at a fairly rapid rate, putting on about a half-pound a week. In fact, the next four weeks will be a period of extraordinary growth. As your pregnancy approaches term next month, your baby will begin to gain weight a bit more slowly.

The pupils of your baby's eyes are now well developed enough to constrict, dilate and detect light. Your baby's lungs are much more completely developed, which allows for some optimism if he or she is born this week. Babies born at this stage need extra care, but almost all will be healthy.
