Not only that, but your baby now has thick skin. Your baby’s coat is now getting thick and the cheesy and waxy coating that they have will start to get away on its own in the upcoming days or months.
At this point of pregnancy, you will also notice that your baby’s feet or hands are poking through. Not literally, but you can see the print on your belly. This happens when the baby is stretching out or moving inside your belly.
