The seventh month of pregnancy is coming to an end. During this period, there is a significant growth of the fetus due to the build-up of fatty fiber. The size of the baby reaches 34 cm, and the weight is 1000-1200 grams.
The baby’s skin is still red and thin. He reacts to light, opens his eyes. The exploration of its own capabilities continues unabated. The baby boldly moves, somersaults, sucks his finger, hiccups, plays with the umbilical cord. More and more recognizable becomes the voice of the mother and other loved ones. And conversations with the baby help to establish psychological contact. Include in such “conversations” and the father of the child. This will have a beneficial effect on the calm course of pregnancy in the mother.
The baby’s internal organs continue to improve as the body grows rapidly.
The mother now regularly feels the baby’s movements. The baby is trying to communicate by showing positive or negative emotions. For example, he may be uncomfortable with the position the mother is in. Try changing your position until the baby calms down.
If you periodically feel uterine muscle contractions, these are most likely training contractions that prepare your body for the upcoming labor. They should not cause discomfort and should not last very long (usually not more than 2 minutes).
If you notice that the smell of discharge has become pungent and unpleasant, as well as a change in color and consistency – this is a reason to immediately consult a doctor. Normally, your discharge should be light in color, uniform in consistency and without a pungent odor.
If the discharge has become watery, it may indicate a leakage of amniotic fluid. It is better to see your gynecologist immediately.
Avoid stressful situations, do not overwork. During this period, physical exertion is undesirable. Have more rest, spend time in the fresh air and enjoy your position. After all, the moral attitude is no less important than physical readiness.
