Week 24: A breath of fresh . . . amniotic fluid

As the lungs continue to develop, our amphibian is beginning to practice breathing by inhaling amniotic fluid. Its ability to enjoy a deep breath was timed perfectly as Amanda will begin a prenatal yoga class next week.

It is still quite thin (weighing approximately 1 ¼ lbs.) and its (approximately 8 ½” long) body is still covered in fine hairs.
