Your Pregnancy Week by Week
2st Trimester: Pregnancy Week 25

Welcome to the world of parenting!

An exciting journey is about to start and Mothercare, through this journal, is going to be by your side and advise you throughout your pregnancy weeks.

Get informed about everything that parents need to know such as pregnancy, baby growth, body and psychology changes, doctor examinations and appointments and of course parturition, breastfeeding and baby care.

Our midwife and lactation consultant IBCLC Ms Georgia Leze every week is going to show you a special path to a healthy and happy baby.

Pregnancy Week 25

Your growing belly may now be a great source of entertainment for you and an unexpected kick might make you jump. You'll be amazed at what your baby is getting up to, from having a play and a wriggle and then settling down for a little nap. Just like you, your baby sleeps in your tummy and quite often in the day with average sleep 40 minutes.

Your baby will now be filling your bump. You may even see your tummy ripple and undulate with your little one’s movements.

  • you’ll be looking blooming lovely this week
  • you will probably notice your baby settling to their own routine
  • your baby will love hearing your voice talking and singing
  • your baby also loves the sweet snacks and cold drinks you consume and can reward you with moves whenever he enjoys something related. Use this trick to confirm the existence of movements and the  good of your pregnancy in moments of doubt.

The lovely pregnancy hormones will be making your skin plump and rosy. Your hair might be thicker and glossier now too. Hair growth is more intense during pregnancy as hair loss does not occur. So in all your body and scalp you may have a different hair density. You might be starting to feel a little overheated or get swollen ankles. Keeping your feet elevated can help: try to drink plenty of water and grab a mini-fan to stay cool.

If you make your appointment with your doctor and midwife a little late this week, then your baby growth will be measured using ultrasound. Your little babe usually grows one or two centimetres a week at this stage. They will also take your blood pressure and test your urine. The test helps to spot pre-eclampsia, a pregnancy complication which means your doctors will need to carefully monitor your blood pressure.

Base on signs of severe swelling of the legs, if flies appear in your sight or you suddenly have severe headaches. Report the above to your doctor or midwife.

Υour baby at Pregnancy Week 25

Your little one is about 35cm long now and beginning to plump up with baby fat and resemble a newborn. Their brain is developing rapidly too. Your baby is beginning to breathe in a regular way and be developing proper swallowing reflexes. They may be able to open their nostrils and form a fist with their hand. They can open and close their eyes and the retinas are developing. Their spine is getting stronger and their spleen is busy making white blood cells ready to fight infection.

For the best development of your baby’s brain in the second and third trimester, enhance your diet with fatty fish. Omega-3 fatty acids are a must to eat during pregnancy for a better growth of your baby’s brain and vision. Consume at least 2 portions of fish per week or prefer multivitamins with omega-3 supplement.


Τhings to do in Pregnancy Week 25

If you haven't already done so, this is the week to tell your employer about your pregnancy, with 15 weeks before the baby is due. Discuss maternity leave and the necessary documents required before you leave. In Greece you have the privilege of maternity leave and an extra authorization from OAED.
