Pregnancy Week by Week: What to Expect Week 25-28

Pregnancy Week by Week: What to Expect Week 25-28

Week 25 to week 28 is a period of pregnancy that’s characterized by rapid weight gain. The extra pounds result from the baby's rapid growth combined with the development of the uterus, placenta, and amniotic fluid. Your body is also producing a lot more blood and retaining more water, which also plays a part in all the weight gain.

Your breasts also account for some of the added weight. The breast size is determined by the amount of fat tissue in the breasts. This milk-producing fat tissue is constantly increasing and growing in size to prepare for your little one’s arrival.

This installment of our Pregnancy Week by Week series will cover weeks 25 to 28. Over these 4 weeks, all the extra weight especially around your chest area will quickly start to get to you because your body is not accustomed to it.

Pregnancy Week by Week: What to Expect Week 5-8

Pregnancy Week by Week: What to Expect Week 5-8

Weeks 5 to 8 bring with them the first pregnancy symptoms. They can be a little confusing, especially if it is your first time going through this wondrous experience. Brace yourself because these symptoms will only become more intense over the first trimester. However, the good news is that by the second trimester, the worst ones will largely fade away and you’ll feel like yourself again. 

Some of these early symptoms include; nausea and vomiting, fatigue, frequent urination, feeling bloated, and a little weight gain. Your breasts may also start to feel sore and enlarge. Your usual bras probably won’t fit you anymore. It is a good idea at this point to invest in a nursing bra that’s been designed for sensitive breasts for that extra bit of comfort. What’s more, you’ll also get good breast support that will also help prevent sagging in the future.

Your baby is still very small at 5-8 weeks. Their brain, heart, and spinal cord are just starting to develop. Formation of the amniotic sac, which is the bubble surrounding the embryo that provides it with warmth and protection, along with the placenta, which provides the baby with nourishment, will also take place within this period.

Additionally, the blood vessels that eventually form the umbilical cord will start to develop over these weeks. The umbilical cord will connect the embryo to your blood supply. Chromosomes also begin to determine the baby's phenotype as their facial features and organs develop.
