Your baby is now 11 inches and weighs about 1 pound. Lips, eyelids, and eyebrows can now be seen distinctly. The baby keeps his eyes closed, but he now has completely formed eyes underneath his eyelids. A baby in the womb sleeps like we do; sometimes scientists can see the baby’s eyes moving really quickly under his eyelids. This is called rapid eye movement or simply REM. REM occurs when we dream, so it looks like the babies in the womb have dreams just like we do! Also, at this point, the baby can hear some sounds!
