Baby Gains Weight Steadily
our baby still looks wrinkly but will continue to gain weight steadily over the next 14 weeks until birth. About now she weighs a little less than 907 grams. If your baby is a boy, his testicles will start their descent into his scrotum, which takes about 2 to 3 days.
Pregnancy can cause some unpleasant side effects when it comes to digestion. The hormone progesterone slows the emptying of the stomach and also relaxes the valve at the entrance to the stomach so that it doesn’t close properly. This allows acidic stomach contents to move upward into the esophagus – resulting in indigestion or heartburn. The expanding uterus also puts additional pressure on the stomach in the last few months of pregnancy. Try eating smaller, more frequent meals, and avoid spicy and fatty foods.
