Your Body at Week 25

Welcome to week 25 of your pregnancy. As if you think you couldn’t get any bigger, well I’m here to tell you that your growing bump won't slow down any time soon! 

This week, your body may be feeling swollen and bloated as the day goes on because your body tends to hold more water in the afternoon. Try doing some light exercise in the morning and stretch out all them aches and pains. Being active in your pregnancy is not only good for you, but for your baby too! They love the movement.  

Your Baby At Week 25 

This week, your baby has started to develop primitive memory. They will be able to respond to loud outside noise and your physical movements. It’s even said, they can distinguish between your voice and your partners.

Week 25 TODO's

  1. If you are struggling with heartburn try cutting out your caffeine intake that week. Chewing gum can help reduce acidity in the oesophagus as it increases saliva.
  2. If you haven’t already started one now is a good time to. Thinking about what sort of pain relief you would ideally like, who you want in the room with you and any ideas that you like to help keep you calm throughout the whole experience.
  3. Treat yourself to a foot massage this week to help with those swollen feet of yours and get the blood running throughout the body.
