Fetal Development

9 Months

During the ninth month, the baby is moving into position for birth by getting head down and tucked into the mother's pelvis.  The skin is becoming pink and smooth, and the lungs are now mature.  The baby is gaining about ½ pound each week and is developing sleeping patterns.  By the end of this month, your baby will be 19-20 inches long, weigh 6 to 9 pounds and be ready for birth!
