The state of the fetus in the twenty-fifth week of pregnancy

The size of the fetus in the 25th week of pregnancy from head to heel is about 34.6 cm. The weight of a 25-week-old fetus is about 660 grams.
This weight doesn’t seem like much, but he will soon gain some fat tissue and his slim and thin appearance will change, his rather wrinkled skin will smooth out and he will look more and more like a full-fledged baby.
Her hair can probably be seen now with the same color and shape, although her hair color and shape may change after birth.
The fetus in the twenty-fifth week of pregnancy has regular periods of sleep and wakefulness. She is now too thin to be ready to give birth but continues to gain weight. His weight will reach about 700 grams at the end of this week. His eyes are open now and maybe he closes them when he sleeps. The sensory receptors around his mouth are more ready to grab the nipple at birth. However, the baby is still fed through the umbilical cord, and your body delivers nutrients through the bloodstream to the umbilical cord, which has one vein and two arteries. The umbilical cord is protected from twisting by a sticky and jelly-like substance called Wharton’s gel.
As the fetus continues to grow, its brain becomes more complete and deeper lines and grooves are formed in its cerebral cortex, which in the future will be the command center for many important activities, including the ability to see, hear, smell, speak and walk. Currently, the rhythm of breathing, digestion and body temperature of the child is controlled by his brain.

Since your blood volume is high during pregnancy, more oxygen goes back and forth and into the placenta as you inhale and exhale.
Breasts continue to grow during the third trimester. Your breasts may even fall on your stomach when you sit down. This is never strange. Your breasts prepare themselves to produce milk and feed the baby. Although your belly will shrink after the birth of the baby, the size of the breasts will not change and even 24 to 48 hours after giving birth, they will still get bigger. Every time milk comes out of the breasts, it causes them to shrink. And by being filled with milk, they grow again in the next turn. But after weaning your baby, your breasts will open as usual.
