By now, the foetuses begin to look like babies. The lungs and the brain would, of course, continue to develop until birth. The other organs would have developed to slowly mature. By the end of the month, there would be small mops of hair on the heads. The nerve cells which help develop taste, smell, hearing, seeing and touching would be developing in the brain. Under the ultrasound, you may find their movements turning out to be coordinated.
Their growth in size takes place at a rapid rate now. This would naturally put the pressure on your abdominal region, sometimes, even causing some pain. The round ligament pain could last sometime. But, all the pain would be naturally forgotten when their movements increase and make you feel like the mother of twins. Of course, they do not know what they are up to because there is a thin membrane between them.
But, that membrane does not stop them from, possibly, waking you up in the middle of the night with their movements which are described as akin to a dance. You can always enjoy the dance even if you have lost some bit of your sleep because this aspect is always described as the most beautiful of feelings by any woman.
As you enjoy that moment, do not forget to drink your regular quantity of water that is most essential to prevent dehydration. And, do not forget to go to your doctor on a regular basis to get all your health parameters monitored because this is the most critical phase of your pregnancy.
Keep an eye on your nutritional intake as well as weight gain. The catchword here is balance – you need to eat enough to provide sufficient nourishment to your babies, but not so much that managing your weight gain becomes a challenge. You should take walks every day to keep the circulation in your legs going. Walking in open air is also a great mood lifter.
