Time: September 4th-10th
Developmental Milestones: Baby’s ears are developing so he or she is able to hear our voices! Tiny fingerprints have also formed.
Symptoms: Feeling great except my sleeping patterns have really been affected the past couple of weeks. I don’t remember the last time I’ve actually slept through the night! Lately, my lower back and tailbone have started hurting. I’ve gotten the go ahead from the doctor to see a chiropractor so hopefully I will get some information on some helpful stretches. At my prenatal check-up last week, I received a flu shot- wow, my arm is still sore from the injection. Ouch!
Cravings: Nothing new this week! Currently, loving Strawberry ice cream.
Highlights: The doctor found the Baby’s heartbeat immediately at our check-up last week! It sounds so strong! We also made THE appointment! We will be finding out whether Baby is a he or she on September 20th! J and I can’t wait. I am also really looking forward to the first signs of movement, which should be happening anytime now. Still waiting on developing that cute baby bump.
