I’m in Week 23 of pregnancy! Let’s see how Yoda bear is doing!
According to babygaga.com:
Your little womb hi-jacker is starting to kick their break-dance party up a notch now that his/her ears are registering sounds from the outside world!
The sound of a phone ringing (or that catchy ring tone), a thunder clap, or a car honking will actually jar their little ears enough to elicit a kick or violent bout of squirming.
More importantly, this means that their little ears are picking up the sounds of your voice and others around you.
So, if you’ve been yelling a lot (and really, who doesn’t get cranky when they’re pregnant?) it’s time to reign that in and practice a little self restraint for the sake of your little eavesdropper, who is becoming more exquisitely sensitive to all of your behaviors every day.
The equation is simple: happy healthy mama = happy healthy baby.
Stress during pregnancy is quite literally BAD for your baby’s developing brain. It’s time to clean out the toxic relationships and situations in your life for your sake and your child’s sake.
Take the time to center and be quiet – to reflect on the growing life inside of you and the future you will share together. Read up on infant development and attachment to start preparing yourself for the first time you meet your child.
So pretty much, I need to keep zen and drink water. Is there a t-shirt that says that?
Now how big is Yoda this week?
Yoda is the size of a grapefruit!
