Pregnancy Life & Style - - YOUR BABY -

YOUR BABY

Feel him kick­ing? He’s likely to be more en­er­getic than ear­lier, al­though he may make fewer move­ments due to the lim­ited space. As more fat is laid down, your baby slowly loses his red and wrinkly ap­pear­ance. Your baby will nearly dou­ble in weight dur­ing this time, from around 900g to 1.8kg.

YOUR BODY

To pre­pare for breast­feed­ing, your breasts may start leak­ing colostrum (pre-milk). Swelling in your lower legs and an­kles is com­mon, but if your hands or face swell, con­tact your GP or mid­wife im­me­di­ately – it could be a sign of preeclamp­sia, which is a dan­ger­ous con­di­tion that re­quires at­ten­tion.

YOUR BABY’S HANDS ARE FULLY FORMED AND FINGERNAILS ARE GROW­ING LONGER YOUR BABY’S EYE­LIDS ARE OPEN AND HE CAN SEE AND FO­CUS FAT IS BUILD­ING UP UN­DER HIS SKIN
