25 Weeks Pregnant: What's Happening

Baby’s growing more fat and more hair too!

When you’re 25 weeks pregnant, weight gain can be a source of anxiety. As long as your doctor says that the amount of weight you are gaining is normal, don't stress yourself out - you are growing a human inside of you!

Pregnancy calendar - 25 weeks

Your baby is now the size of a...

Cauliflower!

Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half …. isn't much more than an average cauliflower, but she's beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she'll start to look more and more like a newborn. She's also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you'd now be able to discern its colour and texture.

Pregnancy symptoms at 25 weeks

Trouble sleeping, frequent urination, gas and bloating, constipation, haemorrhoids, heartburn and Braxton Hicks contractions.

Tips and advice for pregnancy at 25 weeks

Some pregnancy symptoms are a pain in the butt, especially haemorrhoids! More than half of all pregnant women experience swollen, itchy veins in the rectum due to the weight of the uterus pressing down and the increased blood flow to the area. Although not dangerous, the are at best really painful — so try your best to avoid them by eating right (and avoiding constipation if at all possible.), they should go away after your baby’s birth.

If it wasn’t enough, you may find you begin to snore…. It's quite common during pregnancy since increased blood flow to mucous membranes in your nose can cause congestion, nothing much to be done about it, let's hope your partner can sleep through it.
