Week 24

Every week your baby is getting closer to being ready to survive and thrive in the outside world.
While your little one has eyelashes, eyebrows and hair now, they don’t have any pigment yet, so regardless of whether she’ll wind up being a blonde, brunette or a stunning Irish red, her hair is currently white.

You may now also notice something completely different when glancing at your tummy- the linea nigra. The linea nigra is a dark vertical line down your tummy and is considered a pregnancy trademark. And your belly button will probably be really popping out too, which is also perfectly normal.

If you are experiencing some of the discomforts of the later months of pregnancy such as leg cramps, backaches or swollen feet – hang in there mum-to-be! It’ll all be worth it when your have your bundle of joy in your arms.
