Stages of fetal development

Fetal development: the sixth month

How does your child grow?
Now the nerve network in your child’s ears has become more sophisticated and more sensitive than before. He may now be able to hear your voice or your spouse’s voice as you talk to each other. He now inhales and exhales small amounts of amniotic fluid, which is necessary to develop his lungs. Breathing movements are also a good exercise in preparation for taking the first dose of air. Fat will increase in his body. It weighs about 750 grams and is about 14 inches long. If the baby is a boy this is the time when his testicles come down to the scrotum – a trip that will take about 2-3 days.
