{What's Going On With Reegan This Week}

Your Baby: Week 24

During week 24, your baby is now more than one pound {1.3 pounds} and is about 11.8 inches long! As you track your pregnancy week by week, from this point out, your baby will resemble a tiny albeit complete little human being! Your baby continues to grow more proportional each and every day. During week 24 her organ systems continue to mature as do the central nervous system and even reproductive and circulatory systems. Your baby's lungs are also starting to form little branches and will eventually start producing a substance called surfactant, which prevents her lungs from sticking together and helps the baby to breathe after birth.

The amniotic fluid surrounding your baby begins to increase in volume after about pregnancy 24 weeks. This continues until delivery when your uterus will hold up to 2 pints of amniotic fluid.
