Pregnancy Calendar - Week 25

Your Baby:
Baby's arms and legs are almost the length that they'll be at birth. Baby's nostrils, which have been plugged up till now, clear out as she practices breathing through the nose. Your baby's spine is now made up of 150 joints, 33 rings and 1,000 ligaments. The smallest of blood vessels (capillaries) are forming this week, as well as the blood vessels in the lungs.

Leg cramps are common during pregnancy, and can be due increased pressure on your back and legs due to weight gain, as well as because of a lack of calcium, so make sure you're taking a calcium supplement. Another handy tip to remember is when stretching your legs first thing in the morning, make sure you don't point your toes, rather flex your feet so that your toes are pointing upwards - this makes a cramp impossible and you still get your lovely morning stretch!
