Select Week of pregnancy

25th WEEK

Your baby

The seventh month of your pregnancy has begun. The baby starts to use her developing lungs by using the gullet and larynx, and making small breathing movements. Her wrinkled skin starts to become smoother.

You

If you have been losing your hair, that should stop this week and it may appear thicker and brighter than before. You may not feel as nimble as before and may have lower back pain. Unless your doctor says otherwise, you should continue to exercise unless you are feeling tired or feel any pain, dizziness or shortness of breath. Don’t sleep on your back, and try to sleep on your left side.

We advise you to take the tetanus vaccine this week. If you already had the vaccine within the last five years, this treatment is not necessary. This vaccine is important to help reduce the risk of bacteria and infection in your baby during birth.
