In this week, your baby moves her/his eyes and open and closes the eyelids. This action can be clearly observed on an ultrasound. If your baby is a boy, the testicles begin to descend toward the scrotum, this process will take 2-3 days.
The second trimester period expires. This period is the week you need to take measures for early birth risk. If your contractions, vaginal discharge and lower back pain gives you too much trouble; you should contact your doctor and question whether these symptoms lead to premature birth risk or not.
As there’s not much time left until the birth, spending your time looking for the childbirth preparation courses will make your special day less painful. Pilates which you have started in your early pregnancy period will also reduce your labor pains. The reason for the back pain in this week is the uterus which causes the change of your body’s center of gravity by growing and which stretchess and weakens the abdominal muscles.
