What Demi Is Up Too:
Brain wave activity measured in a developing fetus shows different sleep cycles, including the rapid eye movement phase, the stage when dreaming occurs.
By now, Demi who weighs in at about 3 pounds and stands — or rather lies — at almost 16 inches (measured head to toe) has added blinking to her growing bag of tricks. Other impressive new talents being added to Miss Demi’s roster in the womb include coughing, more intense sucking, and, perhaps most important, better breathing. Of course, it’s still best if a baby doesn’t check out of that hotel just yet — there’s still a lot of growing and maturing to do over the next 12 weeks.
