Stages of Pregnancy Week by Week
Pregnancy Week 25
You've made it to your third trimester! Learn how your baby is developing as well as how to deal with rib pain, spider veins, the risks of preterm labor, and more.
Watch Your Baby's Growth
Your baby's ability to see, hear, smell, taste, and feel are developing stronger each day. Learn which of her senses are already working.
Your Changing Body
Get ready to kiss your petite little belly goodbye soon (if you haven't already) -- your uterus is growing big-time! It is now about the size of a soccer ball. As your uterus continues to expand upward -- the top is nearly midway between your breasts and belly button now -- your middle will grow longer and wider.
Your Developing Baby
Your baby's first bowel movement has been forming in the large intestine. The thick, dark poop is called meconium and it's typically excreted shortly after he's born.
Tip of the Week
Ease heartburn symptoms by tweaking the foods you eat and how you eat them. Stick to five or six smaller meals instead of three large ones -- less food in your tummy makes it easier to digest. Avoid fatty, fried foods, which take longer to break down, as well as things that are spicy, citrusy, or carbonated.
