Pregnancy Week 25

Your baby this week

This week your baby weighs almost 660g and is about 35cm long from crown to heel. Your baby’s hearing is continuing to develop and he/she will be able to hear loud noises which may cause him/her to jump. If you do an ultrasound this week, you may notice that your little one is sucking their thumb, yawning or even rubbing their eyes. How cute.

Your body this week

You may find it hard to sleep well as your belly grows. Try lying on your side with a pillow under your upper leg, to take the weight off your stomach. All that stretching may be causing your skin to itch, some women find relief from using cocoa butter or other oil based creams. Other notable symptoms this week include:

  • Heartburn or indigestion
  • Snoring
  • Varicose veins
  • Restless legs syndrome (RLS)
  • Skin, hair, and nail changes
