25 Weeks

Facts:

It's a big week for your baby this week as the eyes finally begin to open. Until now, the eyes have been fused shut and have been busy developing, but now they're ready to see the world. Unfortunately for your baby, he or she isn't met with much of a view in your uterus! However, your baby will be able to better sense light and dark, and may react to a torch shining on your belly. Once your baby arrives, his or her eyesight will be much the same as it is now, they won't be able to see much for a while, but may react to flashing lights and bold colors.
Your baby is continuing to put on weight, and grow in length, and is likely to weigh somewhere between 1.5 and 2 lbs, and measure roughly 14 inches from head to toe. He or she will be nicely curled up in there so will actually be taking up much less space than that, but to you they might seem massive! Your baby's lungs are perfecting their processes and, with assistance, your baby should be able to breathe if born now. It's best if he or she stays put for a while longer, though.
If you're having a baby boy, he goes through some rather manly changes this week as his testicles descend into the scrotum. The process takes a few days and is the final step towards development of the genetalia. If you're having a baby girl, all her bits and pieces will already be in place - after all, girls do tend to mature quicker than boys!
