Pregnancy by weeks

What happens to the baby?

Now your baby is about 24 cm long and weighs approximately 900 g.

Being accommodated conveniently, he/she already sees the small cosy world provided by your body. The reason is that the biggest part of the eye structure is formed and his/her sight functions.

The baby’s lungs and immune system are getting prepared for coming into the world. If he/she was born now, he/she has 85% chance to survive (with medical help), as the lungs are able to breathe in air.

What happens to you?

Your breast continues to change. The situation will remain the same after the delivery too. They grow impetuously, and the areolas (the dark areas around the nipples) change and get darker. Furthermore, their pigmentation goes outside the borders of the areolas. Can you imagine – according to some studies, this is a reaction of your body in order to make the nipple something like a target for your baby! And there are no doubts that he/she will not miss!

Without disturbing you more than necessary, we recommend you to pay more attention to your body. If you see symptoms of early birth-pains, call your gynecologist. During this period of the pregnancy you can expect a premature birth and it is important to pay attention to every signal in order to avoid it.

Constantly raging hormones play with your sleep. During this period, you can expect interesting dreams. Some of them are related to the pregnancy, your body, the baby, and others bring you to some varied adventures. Whether you will be in the role of a passionate mistress, or of an uncontrollable traveler – everything is bright and colourful in your mind.
