So this week’s major development is baby can now pull all sorts of funny faces in practise for when he/she will be making funny faces at you! Thanks to impulses from the brain, baby can now squint, grimace, frown and maybe even smile, practising one facial expression after another. If that isn’t cool enough baby can now also pee! Already! Although no nappies are needed yet (of course) baby’s kidneys are full functioning and are producing urine every day which they will release into the amniotic fluid around them.
In other news, welcome officially to second trimester! If you’re anything like me then your breasts may feel less painful, your nausea may be entirely gone and best of all your energy may be coming back to you, finally enabling you to feel human again! Second trimester is by far my favourite as I’m not so big and whale like and I am finally able to do normal errands again, yay!
