    I den här artikeln kommer du kunna läsa om allt som rör att vara gravid i vecka 24. Här får du information om bebisens utveckling, hur mammans kropp förändras och tipsen du kan behöva på resans gång. I gravid vecka 24 är fostret lika stor som en majskolv.

    Bebis: Nu väger fostret 600 gram

    Fostret är cirka 30 cm långt och väger omkring 600 gram, nu har det alltså passerat ett halvt kilo och är lika långt som en linjal! I vecka 24 kan fostret redan känna doft och smak.

    Development

    Än så länge har barnet inte så mycket kroppsfett, men de närmaste veckorna kommer bebisen att öka på rejält i både vikt och längd. Detta kommer du förmodligen märka av på takten din mage växer i!

    Huden är fortfarande ljus i färgen och lätt genomskinlig, vilket beror på att fostret växer snabbare än fettlagret hinner fyllas på. Ganska snart kommer dock dessa fettdepåer fyllas på och huden blir då mer fyllig och mer lik huden på en nyfödd bebis.

    Barnet trivs med att ligga lätt ihopkrupet och blir trygg av att känna livmoderns väggar. Kanske har du känt att barnet trycker sig mot livmodern med sina händer och fötter?

    De barn som föds i vecka 24 andas ofta på egen hand, men behöver stöd för att orka hålla igång andning från till exempel en respirator. Det gör att de flesta barn som föds i den här graviditetsveckan överlever!

    Hjärnan och hörseln

    Det här är en viktig vecka för barnets utveckling av hjärnan! De flesta nervcellerna har bildats nu, men är inte helt färdigutvecklade än, vilket är tydligt när man ser till hjärnans utveckling och mognad i den här veckan. Största delen av den energi barnet får under den här veckan går därför till just hjärnan för att den ska utvecklas.

    Från och med nu kan du verkligen börja prata eller sjunga för barnet, som nu känner den din röst och registrerar att det är just din röst – som den kommer känna igen på utsidan sen!

    Mamma: Gravid i vecka 24

    Vet du vad, din förlossning närmar sig med stormsteg! Från vecka 24+0 tillhör du förlossningen om du skulle behöva vård under graviditeten. Det betyder att du ringer till den förlossning du önskar föda på om du känner oro för fostret eller behöver vård.

    Ligamentsmärta

    Känns det som att det drar och smärtar i sidan av magen ibland? Det är en vanlig känsla som kan komma och gå, särskilt när du reser dig upp från sittande till stående eller om du har varit i samma position en längre stund. Det beror vanligen på att ligamenten som håller fast livmodern börjar töja på sig när fostret rör sig, samt att livmodern växer. Du kan föreställa dig band som hjälper livmodern att hållas på plats så att den inte kommer för nära andra organ.

    Smärta i ligamenten är vanligt under graviditeten, men även helt ofarligt. En varm vetekudde på magen brukar kunna lindra. Prata med din barnmorska om du tycker att det känns jobbigt!

    Här kan du läsa om vecka 23.

    Here you can read about week 25.
