      Your Baby

      The grasp reflex is imprinted with your baby holding his umbilical cord tightly clasped, pulling them back and forth. Do not worry about it. Taste buds will start to form in your baby’s mouth and soon it can taste. Weighing at 250 grams, it measures from crown to rump at about 25 centimetres, 30 centimetres to toe now.

      Your body

      The increased blood flow can be felt in various places in your body. For example, swelling in the nasal mucosa can cause a feeling of a constant runny nose. The nails may be brittle. Cut them regularly and wear gloves when gardening.

      Our AptaAdvantage Tip

      Have a stuffy nose? Try steam baths for your nose. For example, a salt steam bath with a level tablespoon of salt in a bowl with a litre of boiling water could be prepared. Bend forward with a towel over your head and close your eyes. Inhale slowly through your nose and out through your mouth again. After 10 minutes dry your face, then apply your facial cream and relax for 20 minutes with your placed feet high up.

      Do not forget!

      It is time for the second ultrasound examination. In contrast to the first ultrasonic examination, the second will be against your abdominal wall. A gel will be applied to your abdomen and your doctor or health care professional makes the ultrasound head slowly glide over it.
