Your baby's lungs are continuing to develop and are now producing a substance known as surfactant; this helps his lungs work properly after birth. Around this time sweat glands begin to form. Little creases are appearing on his palms and his co-ordination is improving. Taste buds are developing and your baby may now react to changes in the taste of his amniotic fluid!
