Answer: In the seventh month of gestation, the baby is about 38-41 cm long and weighs up to one and a half kilograms by the end of the month. All organs and systems are practically formed, but are improving and getting ready to function independently from the mom’s body.
The stomach, intestines, kidneys are almost ready, while the lungs making first respiratory movements, still need time to get ready to function in the outside world. At this term, a premature newborn has big chances for survival. The nervous system and the cerebral cortex are developing. The baby can react to pain, distinguish the sounds of the outside world, hear the mom’s voice, react to her intonations and express emotions.
During this month, the baby gains weight and occupies practically the whole uterus. He can hardly find enough room in the mom’s tummy to feel comfortable, that’s why he cuddles crossing the legs and arms. The baby is moving actively, while the moves become more frequent and stronger. He is the most active at night, because during the day time he’s lulled by the mom’s voice and movements. You can not only feel, but also see your baby pushing. The baby's skin is still dry and wrinkled. During this month, it intensively accumulates subcutaneous fat and is getting flat – by the time of the birth it will be smooth, though thin and red.
