Pregnancy Week 24: Development of the baby and Change to Mother


Development of the baby

1. Baby now has a body length of 22cm and a weight of 500g.

2. Baby now occupies a large proportion of the entire womb.

3. Baby's skin is thin with a lot of wrinkles.

4. At this time, the fetal movement has become more frequent.

Change to the expectant mother

1. Due to the hormone level change, expectant mothers may experience swollen gum, and bleeding becomes common when they brush teeth.

2. Expectant mothers may also experience nasal congestion and runny nose.

3. The substantial increase in weight puts pressure on the leg which causes some mothers to suffer from phlebangioma.

4. Expectant mothers can feel the fetal movement.
