Your Baby’s Eyelashes and Iris Has Developed.
By the first week of your third trimester, your baby has developed its eyelashes.
The baby’s iris is beginning to develop its colour and pattern, but the final colour is yet to be determined not until the baby is born.
During this week, a process called myelination is taking place.
Myelination is the process of coating the baby’s spinal cord and nerves in order to protect the baby’s nerve and speed up impulse transfer.
This fatty substance will continue to cover the baby’s spinal cord and nerve for a year after the baby is born.
