• In total, a baby's heart beats about 54 million times between conception and birth.
• Brain connections formed by 15 weeks' gestation last into adulthood.

• Eye movement can be seen during an ultrasound.
• The baby's entire body responds to touch.
• The unborn baby prefers sucking her right or left thumb.
