This week our little one is practice swallowing by swallowing amniotic fluid every day for hydration, nutrition. The amniotic fluid changes day to day depending on what I eat. That means the baby is getting a taste of - and a taste for - whatever I am eating. Our baby is definitely going to be a chocoholic!! The baby's arm and legs are now in proportion to the rest of the body and getting more coordinated. The neurons are now connected between the brain and muscles and cartilage, which is now turning to bone.
I am feeling those coordinated kicks and movements every day. I just learned today from a nurse friend that I have been having some braxton-hicks. When I lay down at night and my belly feels really tight, that a braxton-hicks. Who knew! I am still feeling great and really starting to look pregnant. Belly picture coming soon.
