Ops... I meant week 20

This week marks the halfway point in your baby's development. And right around now, nature gives him a spa treatment--a white, cream-cheesy moisturizer called vernix coats every inch of his skin, keeping it smooth and wrinkle-free for the next 20 weeks as he floats in a warm bath of amniotic fluid. He'll still be covered in vernix when he's born; your doctor or midwife will wipe it off a few moments after birth, revealing skin that's (you guessed it) baby soft.
