Pregnancy Week 25

3D Ultrasound 25 Weeks

Mother:

At this point in pregnancy you probably still feel really good! Soon you will begin to see your practitioner more often. When this happens, many women begin to get the feeling that they are "running out of time."

Fixing the baby's room or deciding where to let the baby sleep is one of the things you need to work out your feelings about now. Although, let me tell you from experience that you should reserve the right to change your mind once the baby gets here!

Baby:

Baby weighs 1 pound 9 ounces (709 grams). The bones are continuing their ossification process, meaning that they are becoming harder.

Dad/Partner:

Are you being heard? If you have opinions about things that relate to baby - speak up! Sometimes mom has a tendency to just give her opinion. Maybe she's asked and you've clammed up? Don't bother, just share what your opinion is on raising baby.

Readers Share:

Dads help make pregnancy a special time. But sometimes dads admit that they feel left out or confused. They aren't pregnant, so they lack the physical symptoms, unless they suffer from couvade syndrome. So how can a dad help? If you're a dad, share what you did to be a part of pregnancy. Moms, share what he did that worked or didn't work.

Twin Tips:

Starting to feel huge? If your clothes don't fit that might not make you feel any better. What do mothers of multiples do about maternity clothes? So mothers of multiples suggest skipping maternity stores after a certain point in late pregnancy and just heading to the larger sizes of clothing. There is nothing like a shirt that fits to make you feel better!
