Pregnancy by weeks

What happens to the baby?

During this week your baby does not gain too much weight. The reason is that the energy you supply with the food is used for the development of the brain.

The eyes of the growing person, if he/she is awakened, are already wide open. The nails of his/her toes and fingers have finished their development. The entire body of the baby is covered with the so called lanugo – delicate hairs that fall out at the end of the pregnancy or after birth.

Some other good news! The bone marrow is fully activated to generate the required amount of red blood cells.

What happens to you?

Among all indispositions you suffer this week of your pregnancy, there is a great news that might erase everything. And the news is that your baby has taken the right position before birth.

Even if we try to focus on the positive aspects, we cannot miss what your body passes through. The head of the little baby presses the sciatic nerve that passes through the lower part of the back, the thighs and the legs. As a result you feel pins and needles or formication of the legs. Usually, the pain starts from the lower part of the back and goes down to the legs.

This week you should ...

Rely on herbs – If you want to avoid medicines when you feel numb with pains in the waist or the legs, rely on harmless herbs.

Strengthen your bones – In order to avoid the pressure of the increased heaviness your bones overtake during this period of the pregnancy, you’d better strengthen them. By providing them with the required doses of vitamin D, you can take care for this. For example, drink orange fresh juice or homemade lemonade.
