By week 25 of pregnancy baby development, symptoms and conditions may become more aggravated due to the rapid changes within your body.
You may experience hemorrhoids, caused by increased blood flow, indigestion, constipation, and heartburn. Along with the latter two, you may become more sensitive to unpleasant odors or flavors.
Bouts of snoring are also likely because of increased blood flow to mucous membranes that will cause congestion.
Because of the increased blood flow and volume, it is also likely that you will experience a tingling sensation in your hands, akin to carpal tunnel, and your legs called restless leg syndrome (RLS). RLS may be present for the most part of this last trimester. The increased blood volume causes swelling in your veins that put pressure on your nerves, causing these sensations.
Due to the pregnancy hormones, it is also likely for your hair to grow longer and thicker because hair loss is suppressed by the pregnancy hormones that allow your baby to grow in-waiting hairs.
On top of this, your body is being stretched to make way for your growing child. Because of this, you may have symphysis pubis dysfunction or pain in the pelvic area due to ligaments being stretched.
