Pregnancy by weeks

What happens to the baby?

The baby reaches the period during which his/her wrinkled skin gets smooth. The reason for this is the increased amount of fats accumulated under the skin surface. Such fats are his/her source of energy.

Charged with new additional forces, your baby is ready for achievements! And you feel them quite tangibly with his/her constant movements.

What happens to you?

The kicks, the fists and all other movements of the little baby inside make you feel the energy the little imp has gained. Now, it is the time when you should better start counting his/her movements. Normally, your baby makes about 10 movements within 2 hours.

Of course, it is possible that your child prefers peaceful lounges than active movements. The fact that the baby is lazier is not a reason for troubles, but if you notice rarer movements, you’d better consult your gynecologist.

The baby growing inside you takes the required space by unmercifully stretching your skin. This is the reason for the itches you feel on your belly. In order to cope with them, we recommend you to make regular massages with Maternea Anti-Stretch Marks Body Cream. Find out more about it in the section with recommended products, if you have still not tried it.

This week you should ...

Eat yoghurt – It regulates the function of your stomach as it contains natural probiotics in the form of alive bacteria. In this way you can avoid the two serious indispositions – constipation and diarrhea.

Ensure sound sleep – If you suffer insomnia, try the well-known recipe – a cup of hot milk before bed. It calms down the nerves and will help you get asleep.

Defeat acids – They continue torturing your body? You can defeat them by avoiding heavy foods, chocolate and nuts before bed.
