Pregnancy by weeks

What happens to the baby?

The baby continues exerting pressure to mommy with his/her gradually increasing weight. Now, your unborn treasure weighs about 800 g and is approximately 33 cm long.

The alveoli in the lungs develop, the nostrils are getting opened and the small person is ready for breathing exercises! However, instead of air, he/she gets amniotic liquid.

Your baby’s sucking reflex is already in full action, so when his/her hand gets enough close to his/her face, he/she sucks one of his/her fingers.

What happens to you?

You feel the dynamic moves of your baby. You think that it moves almost constantly and the reason is, as you may already know, that the periods in which you are calm, taking a rest or sleeping, coincide with the periods when the baby decides it’s time to move.

Everybody around you could notice the movements of your belly because the baby gives clear signals that there is somebody inside and you are not just gaining weight.

But this is not so unpleasant indisposition. What you are swallowing more difficultly are the calls of your bladder. Now they become so frequent that sometimes you cannot control them and the time comes when you feel like a little infant.

This week you should ...

prepare your smile – A few tags and a nice smile are enough to cope with the attacks of all those who want to enjoy your belly as if it is a public domain. Be indulgent to people around you who believe that the magic touch of your belly will bring them luck, such as a magic lamp that fulfils wishes.

make your working place cosy – In case of a normal course of your pregnancy, you can go to work at least to the end of the ninth month. However, in order to feel comfortable, you need to make your working place cosy, so that you are able to lift your legs on a soft pillow in order to stimulate the blood circulation.

go to a last trip – This is the right moment! Soon trips will become counter-indicative for the progress of your pregnancy. But not this week! Take the opportunity of this period, find a place where you and your sweetheart have always wanted to go but there has not been enough time, pack and go.
