Big changes this last week.
1. Sleeping has become much harder, I find sleeping with a body pillow that supports the belly is very helpful.
2. My stomach seems to be growing weekly. REALLY.
WHAT'S NEW WITH THE BABY:
The baby can hear loud noises now so it's a great time to start playing comfort music for the baby. They say that if you play a certain song to them when they come out of the womb they remember that song which brings them comfort.
Also by now, the face is almost fully formed, complete with eyelashes, eyebrows, and hair.
She weighs 1.5 pounds and is almost a foot long.
I just started my Week 23 and I officially entered 6 months!
I just cant believe how fast time has passed. It feels like just yesterday that I was wondering when my belly would just start growing. Now I'm 3 short months away from seeing our little girl.
WHY I CHOOSE TO HAVE A HOME BIRTH:
1. I believe birth to be natural thing, its not a disease or an illness therefore I believe medical intervention is unnecessary unless there are complications and by complications I mean real complications not the make belief ones the doctors come up with.
HOW I FEEL:
I’m feeling Heavy and it’s a bit harder to move around. If I lay down and get up I find myself having to just sit there for a while and let my body slowly adapt to the change.
Bending down and sitting are sometimes uncomfortable I have to make sure if I’m sitting I’m at an angel rather then straight up.
This is because she sits really low even though she looks like she is sitting high. She kicks me really low. There are some workouts I can do even though they are supposed to be pregnancy safe like lunges because of how low she sits. That’s why it’s important to listen to your body.
I read a couple articles online that really angered me because of misleading information.
Some articles said stay away from juicing fresh fruits and veggies because it could have bacteria but shelf juice that's been possessed, chemically altered even artificially colored it okay.
THAT'S A BIG RED FLAG & YOU SHOULD STOP READING THAT ARTICLE.
KEEP IN MIND JUST BECAUSE ITS FDA APPROVED DOES NOT MEAN ITS GOOD OR SAFE FOR YOU!
