Mama Fact of the Day

I've been getting occasional nosebleeds and gums have been bleeding lots too.

Increased blood flow during pregnancy puts pressure on your nose's delicate veins. On top of this, pregnancy hormones can make your gums swell and become inflamed, which leads to frequent bleeding.

(it's got nothing to do with my increased sweet consumption - I swear!)

Fetal Fact of the Day

I'm 23 weeks today!

My baby has a while to go before its lungs will be ready for air but in the mean time is practising "breathing" on the amniotic fluid — sucking it in and out of its lungs.
