What To Expect At Week 25

Pregnancy Week-25

Last Updated on

From head to heel, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Their wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out, and they are starting to look more and more like a new-born baby. Many (but not all) moms-to-be describe their hair more full and shiny than it was before. You may think that you’re growing more hair, but you’re not. Instead, thanks to the pregnancy hormones, the hair that you would usually fall, now sticks for a longer period than usual. Enjoy it while you can, the extra hair will fall out after you give birth. You may also notice darker or thicker body hair, and it’s not unheard of to grow a new hair on the chin, the lips, the jaw, the chin, the chest or the stomach, due to an increase in hormones called androgens. All will be back to normal within a period of six months after you give birth.
