25th week of pregnancy
What you need to know about the 25th week
During this time you may experience a slight swelling of the face, hands or feet with water. This is very normal during pregnancy, so there is usually no reason to panic. When the feet are watery, relax by placing your feet on a pedestal or high place. Try to get enough rest. However, do not forget to inform your doctor about this matter. This is because a complex pregnancy problem called ‘ pre-eclampsia ‘ can cause watery hands and feet.
As the size of the fetus increases, so does the pressure in the stomach, which can lead to digestive problems. At this time, many people get heartburn after eating every time.
Other symptoms may include:
- Feeling more tired,
- Stretch Marks
- Sleep problems
- Swelling or bleeding gums,
- Abdominal pain,
- In some cases, mild bleeding from the nose,
- Flatulence and constipation,
- Indigestion and heartburn,
- Chest pain when pressed,
- Leg pain,
- Feeling uncomfortable or short of breath in mild or slightly hot weather,
- Dizziness or headache,
- Watery or swollen limbs,
- Inflammation or infection of the urinary tract,
- Vaginal infections
- Spots on the skin of the face or other parts of the body
- In many cases, the hair on the head becomes thicker and blacker than before.
Things to look out for
- The risk of various infections increases during pregnancy and after delivery. Try to be aware of this.
- Decide in advance where you want to deliver your baby at a hospital or clinic according to your needs. In this case, you should choose a good service provider that is close to your home. If you want to have a baby at home, keep in touch with a trained, skilled and experienced midwife.
- Working mothers can apply for maternity leave three months before childbirth. Try to find out in advance what kind of rules you have in your office or workplace.
How the fetus is growing
This week your baby is about 34.8 centimeters or about 13 inches tall. At this time his weight is about 60 grams
At this time she became quite active inside the womb. She is constantly moving, and when she hears a loud noise or the sound of her mother’s voice, she may react by throwing her arms and legs. You can now clearly see all his movements, even the occasional hiccup of a child.
The baby now urinates regularly inside its amniotic sac, meaning that a large part of the amniotic fluid that surrounds the baby inside the amniotic sac is its own urine. This fluid helps maintain a stable temperature around the baby.
