How a baby looks at the 33rd week of pregnancy

Baby begins to store various minerals such as phosphorus or calcium that are important for bone development. These are entirely developed but so soft. For their hardening, the particular calcium is mentioned. In the intestines of the fetus, there is accumulated so-called soot, the first stool.
Your baby has a vast repertoire of grimace during his development in the uterus. He smiles, frowns, tongues and yawns. It expresses satisfaction and denial of the situation. Some scientists, however, think that they are only reflective movements that will develop entirely when they are born. During this week, the brain grows with a head of about 1 cm.
