Week 24

Here is the latest news about week 24:

Your baby is almost completely formed, and is beginning to deposit brown fat on his or her body. The purpose of the brown fat is to retain body heat. Newborns are notoriously bad at regulating body temperature at first. This is particularly a problem for a baby born early. S/he weighs in at 1 lb 5 ounces (595 grams) and 30 cms or 11.8 inches total length!
