24 Weeks Pregnant
When you are 24 weeks pregnant, your baby now has basic control of all of its senses -- vision, smell, touch, hearing, and taste. He or she can swallow. Your baby's head is still large compared to its body size.
He or she is getting ready for life outside of you! Other fetal development that is occurring when you are 24 weeks pregnant includes the following:
- Blood vessels in the lungs are developing
- Your baby has almost fully developed eyelashes
- Your baby is starting to produce white blood cells, which fight disease and infection
- Your baby's inner ear is now completely developed.
