The Pea - Week 14 - Sorry for being fruity, there's a lemon in my tummy!

A Lemon! Average size: 3.4 inches, 1.5 oz.

Your Baby: Week 14

Your adorable little fetus is busy with thumb sucking, toe wiggling, and (not so cute but equally amazing) making urine and breathing amniotic fluid as the liver, kidneys and spleen continue to develop. Lanugo (thin, downy hair) is growing all over the body for warmth. 

I remember the bit on QI where Stephen Fry talks about the baby shedding all their hair before birth and eating it, the results of this are apparent in the first poo! URGH!
