5 Months Of Pregnancy : Everything Is Moving ! | Limiting the risks in your fifth month of pregnancy

Paraice presents you the changes which accompany this 5th month of pregnancy for you and for your baby, as well as the examinations and the essential councils to lead a pregnancy in full form.

Your body in the 5th month of pregnancy

Your body continues to change

Your belly is now rounded and becomes visible to the attentive eyes. For some, pregnancy is still discreet, it is normal. You need new clothes, bigger and more comfortable. The growth of your uterus may cause you again ligament pain, more or less brutal and fleeting.

Your breasts are swollen and sometimes secrete a yellowish liquid, colostrum. This will nourish your baby for the first few days after delivery if you decide to breastfeed. The areola is dark and bulging. It sometimes widens to half your breast. The breast veins are visible.

Your breathing changes

You need to ensure your baby's oxygenation in addition to your own. You don't breathe faster, but your breathing movements are fuller and you're sometimes out of breath when you're walking up stairs, walking fast... Also, you sometimes have difficulty breathing through your nose. These phenomena are normal, and stop after giving birth.

Your digestive tract gets lazy

Pregnancy hormones make your digestive tract lazy. Pay attention to food hygiene. Your gums and teeth are more fragile during pregnancy. Do not neglect a small visit to the dentist.

Blood flow brings energy to the baby

Your blood mass is increased and your blood vessels are dilated. Your blood pressure is lower since the beginning of your pregnancy and your heart rate is higher. Your blood rushes into the placenta where it is separated from your baby's blood by a thin membrane. Exchanges of oxygen, carbon dioxide and metabolites take place at this level. Oxygen enters the fetal bloodstream and is brought to your baby's body through his heart via the umbilical cord.

Your baby in the fifth month of pregnancy

Your baby comes and goes and kicks you from time to time... at any time of the day or night. His head is covered with fine hair and his skin is covered with "vernix caseosa", a protective paste. The second ultrasound will allow you to know the sex of your baby if you wish.
  • At 18 weeks, Baby is more and more... and you feel it! Don't hesitate to talk to him and involve the dad so that he can interact with baby.
  • At 19 weeks, Baby oscillates between very restless phases and a lot of rest: he sleeps almost 18 hours a day... but not always at night! The spine is now very straight, as you will see during the next ultrasound scan. His eyebrows are now clearly visible.
  • At 20 weeks, the first hair appears, eyelashes and eyebrows are visible, fingerprints have appeared. He senses your heartbeat and drinks more and more amniotic fluid. This can sometimes even give him hiccups. This is the magic moment of the second ultrasound, which will allow you to know your baby's sex if you wish.
  • At 21 weeks of age, Baby now often sucks his thumb, a sucking reflex that will be useful for his first feed. He perceives sounds (especially low sounds - dad's voice in particular) and he can even play with you if you put your hand on your tummy.
  • At 22 weeks of age, Baby is still growing at high speed. He measures 26 cm and weighs 500 g! His skin is getting thicker, but it is still all wrinkled, because it still doesn't contain enough fat. His immune system appears with the formation of white blood cells.
