whatver they call it…Husib is big and purple and oh so kicky. Just like that dreaded dinosaur- Barney
Let your spouse put an ear to your belly — he might be able to pick up baby’s heartbeat (no stethoscope required). Inside the womb, the formation of tiny capillaries is giving baby a healthy pink glow. Baby’s also soaking up your antibodies, getting the immune system ready for life outside the womb. Eyes are forming, and baby will soon perfect the blink — perfect for batting those freshly grown lashes.
So I’ve been a bit of a workaholic lately, hence no posts. Pregnancy is going well for the most part, except the husib’s kicks get more and more intense and sometimes not very pleasant. Its like he finds a vital organ I would like to keep and pummels it out. I like the wiggles though they are like little tickles. I’ve actually been so work obsessed that I’ve not had too much time to think of the baby the past few weeks, but I did manage to do some research on strollers Travel systems and find few cheap, fun modern ones. Also signed up for childbirth and a myriad of other classes, yaaay!
