What develops in the baby this week

And the famous question, how many months is 25 weeks? At the 25th week of pregnancy, the sixth gestational month begins and its main developmental milestone in this stage is the cerebral one. This will be day after day preparing for its proper functioning after birth.

Your hair is already showing and already has the color and tone that will be born and as well as each contour of your face that can be well perceived through the ultrasound exam. Yes, it is possible to check with ultrasound whether the baby has hair or not! Just be lucky to get a doctor with trained eyes to check and count on your goodwill of course. Nose, mouth contour, ears everything is well defined and your baby already has the feature that will be born in a few weeks.

Baby Movements

The baby continues to move constantly, even though the space in the uterus is increasingly tight. It is possible in ultrasound to watch the little one touching his own face, sucking his fingers and even holding his feet and this is part of his motor development and self-knowledge. He swallows the amniotic fluid and you can see the accumulation of that fluid in the small bladder.

At this stage it is also possible to stimulate your movements and taste for sounds. Many babies respond through kicks and movements when they hear some voices or recognize a sound, or even show that they are uncomfortable with a song for example. Of course, it is impossible to discover the baby’s discontent or joy over sounds, but we know that he responds promptly to these stimuli.

How is Mom Feeling …

Sixth month! Now 25 weeks pregnant, more than half of the pregnancy, mom feels really pregnant! Although ultrasounds and all tests show pregnancy, at that stage the tummy that was so small, is now much larger and very prominent. Are your breasts already coming out of colostrum? It’s more than normal! This is a sign that the body is preparing to breastfeed its greatest wealth. Be very careful with stretch marks, they are feared by many women.

Mommy Care

It is not uncommon for them to appear, but smearing the cream belly is the best way to prevent the appearance of these villains. Also apply a lot of cream on the breasts, less on the nipples, these should be prepared to breastfeed with a vegetable loofah rubbing in the intensity that it can withstand. Also prepare your breasts in the sun, the best time is in the morning. Stay indoors even to be able to strengthen your beaks with the morning light.

Take the vitamins your obstetrician prescribed religiously it helps in the nutrition of the mother and baby , leaving both strong and ready for the time of delivery. Vitamin complexes do not make you fat, they only supplement if your body lacks any vitamins.

External factors

The 25 weeks of pregnancy is a comfortable phase for pregnant women, where nausea is no longer uncomfortable, the weight of the belly is still not a bad thing and their disposition is 100%. Her only concern at the moment is in relation to her clothes, which due to the size of her belly no longer fit in her pants , blouses and dresses, which ends up forcing mom to renovate some of her wardrobe pieces (what a good obligation, huh?). Choose larger pieces such as gowns and more comfortable dresses that you can use even after giving birth. Get more beautiful every day, after all you are experiencing your moment !!

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.

Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
