6th Month of Pregnancy

Om Sai Raam
Eye brows are forming now and the lanugo darkens in color. Your baby is moving and practicing breathing for when he or she will be born. The practice contractions that you may or may not notice don’t bother your baby one bit. Your baby may or may not be head down, because of the amniotic fluid your baby can move all around still.

Your baby is also depositing brown fat. The brown fat will help him or her regulate body temperature at birth. This brown fat will continue to be laid down until birth.

S/he weighs in at 1 lb 5 ounces (595 grams) and 30 cms or 11.8 inches total length. A few babies are born this early. They do have some chance of survival depending on many factors..

6th month of pregnancy:
Weeks 21, 22, 23, 24

21th week of pregnancy

Week 21, Mum’s health: You continue to get bigger and the top of your uterus reaches your belly button. Continue to control your weight; weight gain is often fairly slow during the first months of pregnancy. It increases towards the end of the fourth month onwards…

Week 21, baby: The fetus’ five senses are developing more and more and already beginning to function, in some cases. Taste and smell develop quite early on, which is why the olfactory nerves begin to form from the 10th week of the fetus’s development…

Week 21, advice: Pregnancy causes significant hormonal changes that can lead to anxiety and stress. It’s important to remain vigilant. Stress has in-utero consequences and significantly increases the risk of premature birth…

22th week of pregnancy

Week 22, Mum’s health: You’ll be offered a routine scan around the 20th week of pregnancy. This will allow the doctor to look in detail at the baby’s organs. If you wish, and if it’s possible, you may find out baby’s sex at this point…

Week 22, baby: During the fifth month, the fetus grows a lot. It’s now 23cm long and weighs over 400g. Its sensory functions become more refined, particularly its sense of taste. The taste buds that correspond to specific sensory receptors become more mature…

Week 22, advice: Looking after your skin Looking after your breasts Under the effect of hormones, your bust will get bigger as your breasts prepare themselves for breastfeeding. You might go up by one or two cup sizes…

23th week of pregnancy

Week 23, Mum’s health: To help with some of the symptoms associated with pregnancy, some women turn to alternative medicine. If you decide to try out homeopathy, watch out for preparations with alcohol-based mother tinctures (extracts of the original substances)…

Week 23, baby: The fetus’ five senses are gradually developing. During the 5th month, it’s highly likely that your baby is already aware of noises. The ears start to take shape at around 8 weeks. Next to the brain, a small bud will isolate itself and grow to make up the neurological elements of the inner ear…

Week 23, advice: Be careful not to gain too much weight! You may be having cravings, which are perfectly normal (even though doctors struggle to understand them), but pregnancy brings new emotions, which can sometimes lead to new eating habits…

24th week of pregnancy

Week 24, Mum’s health: As pregnancy advances and your belly becomes rounder and heavier, many women complain of backache from the 6th month onwards, or even sooner. The pain generally occurs in the lower part of the back (near the kidneys) and is often due to poor posture…

Week 24, baby: The fetus weighs around 500g and is about 25cm long. By birth, its weight will have increased six-fold and its length two-fold. It will therefore put on another 2.5kg, or more, which shows how much bigger it will get in the space of just a few weeks…

Week 24, advice: Stay upright! – When standing, keep your feet parallel, relax your shoulders, lengthen your neck and tip your pelvis backwards so that your lower back is as straight as possible. – When sitting, place your legs parallel to the floor…

Indigestion, heartburn and other gastrointestinal problems can start earlier when there is more than one baby. This caused by both the greater expanse in the uterus at this point as well as an increase in hormones from a single pregnancy.

അഭിമന്യു ഇഫക്ട് ” Abhimanyu Effect”

കേരളത്തില്‍ നടന്നൊരു സംഭവം. പണ്ട് തമിഴകത്ത് നിന്ന് ഉദ്ദണ്ഡ ശാസ്ത്രികള്‍ എന്നൊരു മഹാപണ്ഡിതന്‍ കേരളക്കരയില്‍ വെല്ലുവിളിയുമായി വന്നത്രേ! പാണ്ഡിത്യത്തില്‍ അദ്ദേഹത്തെ തോല്പ്പിക്കാന്‍ ഒരു കേരളീയനും സാധിച്ചില്ല. ഓരോ വര്‍ഷവും അദ്ദേഹം വരും, വെല്ലുവിളിക്കും. എതിരിടാന്‍ ആരുമില്ല. അദ്ദേഹം രാജാവിന്റെ കൈയില്‍ നിന്നും സമ്മാനവും വാങ്ങി തിരിച്ചു പോകും.

ഈ നാണക്കേടകറ്റാന്‍ പണ്ഡിതന്‍ന്മാര്‍ ഒരു മാര്‍ഗ്ഗം കണ്ടെത്തി. അതനുസരിച്ച് ഗര്‍ഭിണിയായ ഒരു യുവതിയ്ക്ക് ബാലമന്ത്രം (സരസ്വതീമന്ത്രം) ജപിച്ച നെയ് സേവിക്കാന്‍ കൊടുക്കുകയും മന്ത്രം ഉപാസിക്കാന്‍ ഉപദേശിക്കുകയും ചെയ്തു. അങ്ങനെ ആ അമ്മയുടെ തപസ്സിനാല്‍ ജനിച്ച കുട്ടിയാണ് കാക്കശ്ശേരി ഭട്ടതിരിപ്പാട്.

ഒന്നാം വയസ്സിലെ വീട്ടിലെത്തുന്ന കാക്കകളെ തമ്മില്‍ തിരിച്ചറിയാന്‍ കുഞ്ഞിന് കഴിഞ്ഞിരുന്നു. അങ്ങനെയാണ് കാക്കശ്ശേരി എന്ന പേരുണ്ടായതത്രേ. എന്തായാലും അഞ്ചാം വയസ്സില്‍ കുട്ടി മഹാപണ്ടിതനായ ഉദ്ദണ്ഡശാസ്ത്രികളെ തോല്പിച്ച്, നാണം കെടുത്തി, എന്ന് ചരിത്രം.

ഗര്‍ഭിണിയുടെ ചിന്തയും പ്രവൃ‍ത്തിയും ഗര്‍ഭസ്ഥ ശിശുവിനെ സ്വാധീനിക്കുന്നു എന്ന സത്യം മനസ്സിലാക്കുക. ആധുനിക ശാസ്ത്രവും ഇതിപ്പോള്‍ അഗീകരിക്കുന്നു .

‘അഭിമന്യു ഇഫക്ട് എന്ന് ഇപ്പോള്‍ ആധുനിക ശാസ്ത്രം ഇതിന് പേരിട്ടിരിക്കുന്നു. അഭിമന്യു, സുഭദ്രാഗര്‍ഭത്തില്‍ കിടക്കുമ്പോഴാണല്ലോ ശ്രീ കൃഷ്ണന്‍ പറഞ്ഞതു കേട്ട് പത്മവ്യുഹരഹസ്യം മനസ്സിലാക്കിയത്. അതിനായി നല്ല മക്കളുണ്ടാകാനായി നല്ല അമ്മായായിത്തീരുക.

തപസ്വികളായ സ്ത്രീകള്‍ മാത്രമേ ഉത്തമരായ മക്കള്‍ക്ക് ജന്മം കൊടുത്തിട്ടുള്ളു.’

Legend has it that uddanDa was undefeated in debate in Calicut for years. Once
day a boy of short stature walked into the annual scholarly gathering Revathi
BhaTTadAnaM (pattathaanam in Malayalam). uddanDa remarked contemptuously

AkAro hrasvaH

“short stature”

implying the boy was too young to be a serious competitor, to which, the boy
responded, punning on the possible alternate meaning of AkAraH,

AkAro dIrghaH | akAro hrasvaH

” the letter A is long, a is short”

loose translation, “I may be young, but you’ve probably forgotten most of
grammar at your advanced age” 🙂

according to legend, the debate ended in the first defeat for uddanDa, and the
boy, kAkkasseri bhaTTatiri (named after his ability to identify individual
crows as a child) eventually succeeded him as the top scholar of the Zamorin’s

Notes : Kakkassery is about 6 kms from Guruvayur. Kakkassery Bhattathiripad’s mana is said to have been situated near one Mr. Unnipanikar’s present house. Though he was a scholar, still many people in Kakkasery are not aware of this.

Uddanda Shastri (15th century) was born in Tamil Nadu, but
migrated to Kerala after attaining a mastery of Sanskrit grammar
and literature. Once in Kerala, he wrote some great poetic
masterpieces like the “Kokilasandesha” and the “Mallikamaruta” .
