Week 25 of Your Pregnancy


Days to go



Pregnancy Symptoms

Few of the symptoms which you may notice at 25 weeks are:


Sciatica is technically the nerve that runs from your lower back, through your buttocks, to the lower part of of your legs. All the changes in your pregnancy such as increasing baby weight, increasing uterus size, shifting gravity, loosening ligaments, and pressure on nerves results in pressure on the sciatica nerve too. This pressure can create pain radiating though your lower back , buttocks, and ending towards the back part of the lower part of your legs.'


Heartburns continuing to bother you? You may have to put up with this condition for some more time. As difficult as this may sound, acidity indicates continuing surge of hormones which means your pregnant body is continuing to do what it is supposed to be doing.


Hemorrhoids are something most pregnant women have to put up with. But why do they occur? The increased blood flow causes swelling in various blood vessels. Swelling of veins present in your rectum leads to hemorrhoids.

Blurred Vision

Blurry vision worrying you? Blame the pregnancy hormones once again. Fluid retention around the cornea along with fluid pressure build up on the eye balls is responsible for blurry vision. Your vision will be back to normal once you have delivered your baby.

Your baby is now the size of a Cauliflower. Baby is accumulating more fat and those wrinkles are slowly disappearing as the fat increases. Following are the development of your baby this week.

This week the baby’s lungs will develop air sacs lined with blood vessels or capillaries. These blood vessels will aid the lungs get ready to performing their main function – to help the baby breathe once it’s born.

Along with the lungs, another important member of the respiratory system is registering good progress this week. The nostrils open up this week! This will allow the baby to inhale and exhale. Now since there is no air inside the womb, all that the baby can ‘breathe’ now is amniotic fluid. But this will give them good practice and prepare them for inhaling air once they are born.

The skin is turning pinkish due to the development of capillaries under it.
