Pregnancy Life & Style - - YOUR BABY -

YOUR BABY

He’s as big as an egg­plant now. Mus­cles, or­gans and limbs grow and are ex­er­cised. He’ll open his eyes. The link be­tween the cere­bral cor­tex (the think­ing part of his brain) and the part re­spon­si­ble for emo­tion and pain is set up.

YOUR BODY

The ex­tra weight you’re car­ry­ing may be giv­ing you aches and pains. From about 27 weeks, you may start to ex­pe­ri­ence prac­tice con­trac­tions known as Brax­ton Hicks. These pre­pare your body for labour.
