Fetal Development Week 40: See Your Baby Grow

Take a look at your full term baby. About 60 –75 percent of his body is water and another 15% is fat. The vernix and lanugo (the white, cheese-like skin covering and downy hair we mentioned in week 18) have disappeared (although you may still find traces of it after baby’s born).
