MORE INFORMATION ON 24 WEEKS OF GESTATION

At 24 weeks of gestation, the baby weighs about 600 grams! Okay for you? This is what your baby can weigh now, a little less, a little more … It is relative, as there is a factor that determines the child’s weight and size, the genetics of mom and dad.

In addition, the situation of the placenta , and the nutrition that the baby receives. The 30 centimeters show the advanced fetal development and an ultrasound can show Mommy and Daddy, a baby now more chubby and grown up who likes to play with his hands and feet.

The old question: How many months is 24 weeks? With 24 weeks pregnant, we mark the arrival of the 6th month and your baby is getting bigger and more active every day. As a result, their movements become more evident and often painful. Pains in the back as well as in the lower part of the belly are natural at this stage, since the space for the baby inside the belly is increasingly limited and the discomfort begins to increase. The ribs can be the favorite toy and the bladder is not even mentioned!

Baby Development

Your eyes that have been able to open and close since the previous week, now get lashes and each day more, you will get the appearance of the baby that you will take in your arms soon. This week will begin the process of accumulation of fat under the baby’s skin, which will be responsible for controlling temperature after birth. This is necessary since the temperature outside the belly is totally different from the inside of the uterus. Accustomed to 36.5 to 37.5 degrees of the mother’s body, he will gain greater resistance until he gains weight.

The baby at 24 weeks of gestation, sleeps practically all day, but in the intervals that are awake it is possible to notice by its evident movements and stronger kicks. Long conversations and maybe a lullaby can mark this moment with great affection in the belly, since your little baby can already hear your voice clearly and identify it.

How is Mom Feeling …

In the 24 weeks of pregnancy, your belly is already very large, the back pain is constant especially at bedtime and bedtime. The weight of the belly no longer allows you to bend down and do activities as simple as before, but everything is a matter of way and care not to get hurt and be able to do what you need. Greater care is also taken with regard to balance, which at this stage is shaken. Avoid wearing heels to avoid accidents!

At this stage of the 24 weeks of gestation, the woman is feeling enlightened and fulfilled and a reflection of that is the shine of her hair and her eyes. Even if the use of certain beauty products is not recommended, she can not only take care of herself at this stage. There are cosmetics that do not pose a risk to pregnancy , talk to the specialist you trust!

The 24th week of pregnancy is also marked by the often weird desires of the pregnant woman, as well as the aversion to other types of foods that were so common in her food menu. The nutrient-rich diet is of extreme importance not only at this stage but throughout pregnancy and the correct intake of healthy foods not only nourishes the baby and the mother but also provides better health, in addition to the weight gain control that should be without excesses.

External factors…

How are the preparations for the layette? And the first clothes? The most anticipated day is getting closer and everything should be ready to receive your little baby. If you decide to make a baby shower , it may be the time to start preparing everything since you leave it to the end in addition to being more tired with the weight of the belly and will be more swollen for the photos you will keep as a souvenir. Count on the help of grandparents, uncles and godparents of the baby to make an unforgettable moment for you.
