Fifth month of pregnancy

How the baby grows and how the mother's body looks in the fifth month of pregnancy. The baby sleeps and wakes up at regular intervals. The fetus grows very fast. At the end of the fifth month, the fetus measures 25 centimeters and weighs 245 grams. And the mother-to-be is delighted to see that her baby is becoming more active, moving from side to side, and sometimes completely flipping over.

- If it has not happened to you yet, you will begin to feel that your baby is moving inside your abdomen. And you should tell your doctor.

- Your uterus has grown to the level of the navel.

- Your heart beats faster.

- You may need 8 hours of sleep every night.

- During the day, take rest periods if you feel fatigued. Don't make excessive efforts.

During this stage of pregnancy it is important that you consider and take some care:

1- Go visit your doctor to have a prenatal care exam.

2- Your baby's growth and weight gain will tend to be affected if you still smoke, drink or take drugs.

3- It is never too late to stop or decrease the amount as much as you can.

4- Continue eating a healthy and nutritious diet and drink plenty of juices, water, and milk every day.

From the fifth month of pregnancy, the baby is almost fully formed. Until delivery, the baby does nothing but grow, its movements are noticed by the mother and its brain produces an average of one hundred neurons per second. At that stage, he is able to distinguish his mother's voice. Know the characteristics of the baby in the fifth month of pregnancy:

- The fetus measures approximately 25 cm and can weigh between 200 and 400 grams.

- The baby sleeps and wakes up at regular intervals

- The baby begins to kick

- The baby begins to move and suck his fingers

- The baby moves and turns on itself

- The baby's weight is greater than that of the placenta

- The baby's skin begins to be covered with a fat, vernix caseosa, to prevent it from becoming soft when in contact with amniotic fluid.

- Your heartbeat can be heard

- Baby's nails, eyebrows and eyelashes grow.

- The baby begins to hear outside noises and to react to them. Therefore, music is very stimulating for him.

6 pregnancy beauty dos and don'ts

Is it safe to use self-tanning lotions during pregnancy?

Yes. The ingredients in self-tanning lotions, creams, and foams are harmless.

Stay away from spray tans. If inhaled, the fumes could enter your bloodstream and affect your developing baby.

Avoid tanning beds. They increase your risk of melanoma, which can spread to the placenta and affect your baby.

Is it safe to dye my hair during pregnancy?

Yes. Researchers haven't found any causes for alarm, but most dyes are chemical substances. Be cautious.


Wait until your second trimester, after the critical stages of baby organ development, to color your hair.

Consider a process in which chemicals have little to no contact with your scalp: streaking, highlighting, painting, frosting.

Coloring your hair at home? Wear gloves and do it in a well-ventilated room.

Is it safe to wear an underwire bra during pregnancy?

Yes. The concern is that the wire could inhibit blood flow and hamper milk production. There's no evidence these are linked.

Some women opt for wire-free bras by the second or third trimester for comfort.

Is it safe to wear Spanx during pregnancy?

Wearing Lycra "shapewear" over your bottom, belly, or thighs won't hurt your baby.

Your baby is well cushioned by the amniotic fluid. Look for maternity shapewear, which will have a more comfortable fit.

Is it safe to get a manicure or pedicure while I'm pregnant?

Yes. Go to a salon that follows recommended practices for hygiene. Ask that your cuticles – which protect the nail bed from bacteria and fungus – not be cut or pushed back.

There's no evidence that the brief exposure to chemicals and fumes in the salon are harmful to your baby. But the smells may make some moms-to-be nauseous.

Is it safe to have electrolysis during pregnancy?

Yes, if you stick with thermolysis. This type of electrolysis doesn't involve an electric current, so it's the preferred process during pregnancy.

In the third trimester, avoid electrolysis (your skin will feel extra tender).
