Amazing: 8-month-old foetus moves like crazy in mother's womb

Given the way the baby is kicking and playing around in the mother's womb, it looks like he just can't wait to come out.

In the eighth month of pregnancy, the baby shows signs of maximum growth. Your baby now starts opening and closing his eyes and begins practising breathing.

A layer of fat starts forming under the baby's skin. The baby's movement reduces given the lack of space in the womb. Ultrasounds will show him all curled up with his arms and legs crossed. He rests his chin on his chest. In this month, the baby starts to settle in the head-down position.

All his organs would have formed except the lungs.
