Fetal development in pregnancy week 25:

Your little grower’s physical proportions are evening out at this point
and most of their remaining development will largely be weight gain and
lots and lots of nervous system development. The good news is: if your
child is born premature now they’ll be more likely to survive without
too much trauma as their lungs began to produce “surfactant” last week,
which means their tiny respiratory system is getting stronger with each
passing day. Yes, now’s a good time for a minor sigh of relief and a
quick pat on the back. All that hard work and conscientious living is
really getting your child prepared for a healthy delivery. Keep up the
fabulous work mama! This week they’ll be scootching slowly out of the
old breech position and start rotating (already!) into a better
position for exit during their birth. Their head and feet are slowly
rotating so that the head is pointed down towards the birth canal. Time
is short (or really long, depending on who you ask)—just (still!) 14
weeks left before you can go back to being a single-resident human.

And how's mom doing?

Trimester two is finally almost over,
which means you have that one final trimester of pregnancy to enjoy
(and suffer through). You could celebrate this landmark passage by
purchasing some piece of clothing designed to make your curvy body look
as gorgeous and classy as possible... and don’t let the Try to practice good posture—it will alleviate some of the back fatigue as slouching is actually harder on your back
price tag stop you, this is an act of self-love not book-keeping. But
before you max out your credit card, remember: you’re only going to get
larger, so buy smart. Speaking of larger, you’re obviously carrying
more weight now and your back is going to let you know. Don’t let this
get you down or make you feel like a weakling—it all comes with the
territory of being preggers. Try to practice good posture—it will
alleviate some of the back fatigue as slouching is actually harder on
your back. It’s also common for women to experience leg cramps during
this period. Go ahead, strong arm someone who loves you into giving you
a massage. Or if you're lucky enough to have the extra bucks, head to a
spa that specializes in pregnancy massages and get the full-treatment.You
may have already noticed that your hair seems fuller, thicker, more
plentiful and darker-- especially your body hair. There are two basic
reasons for this: 1) you're shedding much less (head) hair than you
usually do and 2) your body's hormones contribute to the way your body
hair is growing right now. Not to worry, all the hairiness will return
to normal after you've delivered your baby.
