What Happens in Your Body 25 Weeks From Today?
When we look at the date 25 weeks from today, we can see that Your baby will have an open nose and its lungs will function properly. We will also see that Your reflexes are developing. Read on to learn more about Your body during this week. There are many other changes you’ll notice during this week. Listed below are some of the most significant ones. 25 weeks from today will also be a milestone week for You and your baby.
Your baby’s nose will be open
At 25 weeks of pregnancy, your baby’s nose starts to function! At this stage, the capillaries in your baby’s skin begin to form, enhancing blood flow beneath the skin. He or she also has vision cells, which enable him or her to sense light and dark. The lungs of your baby are still immature, but they are producing surfactant, which will help it breathe after birth.
Your reflexes will be developed
Your reflexes will be fully developed 25 weeks from today! You will notice a big change in your body during this stage of pregnancy, and this is perfectly normal! Your body is rapidly changing and maturing, and you may have new feelings and discomforts during this time. Your reflexes have begun to develop, such as hand and startle reflexes. Testicles have moved from the abdomen to the scrotum.
Your baby’s lungs will function
At twenty-five weeks of pregnancy, your baby’s lungs are still undeveloped, meaning they cannot yet send oxygen into her bloodstream or release carbon dioxide when she exhales. At this point, however, she will develop her nose and nostrils, and her sense of smell and taste will start to mature. In addition, her vision is still developing, and she will start to develop a sense of smell and taste in her hands.
Your body changes during week 25 of pregnancy
Your body changes during week twenty-five of pregnancy: Your baby is now growing and getting ready for its arrival! Your baby’s brain and nervous system are both developing and beginning to mature. It can distinguish up from down in the uterus and is already grasping its umbilical cord. Your baby is also gaining weight quickly and becoming chubbier. Be sure to eat a balanced diet to ensure that you maintain a normal pregnancy weight. It is natural for you to crave certain foods, but avoid eating too much.
Your baby’s weight will be 1.7 pounds
Your baby is growing rapidly. You’re about two-thirds through pregnancy, weighing 0.7 kilograms (2.2 pounds). Your baby’s heart beats at 140 beats per minute, and its eyelids will open for the first time. His or her lungs and digestive system are still not fully developed, but he or she is still growing and developing rapidly. Without your help, if you were to give birth to a premature baby at this stage, your baby would probably be in intensive care for some time.
Your uterus will be the size of a soccer ball
By this time, your uterus is the size of a soccer ball and continues to expand upward. By 25 weeks, its top is near midway between your belly button and your breasts, making it wider in the middle. This makes sense, since your baby is growing! During this time, you may experience constipation, heartburn, and hemorrhoids, which are caused by increased blood flow. This is usually harmless and goes away once the baby is born and the swelling of pregnancy subsides.
