Hey Beautiful Mummies-to-be!!!
"O young thing,
your mother's lovely armful!
How sweet the fragrance of your body."
The baby's heart beats at 140 to 160 beats per minute (bpm), compared with the adult rate of approximately 70 bpm. The heart will continue at this faster rate until after your baby turns two years old.
I have subscribed to a daily newsletter, and this is what my mail said today. I just thought sharing it with you all.
Sorry for being absent for such a long time. In fact I had nothing new to write about. M/s has subsided beautifully but certain smells still bothers me especially the smell of garlic. My next appointment with doc is on Oct 1 and the wait seems for eternity. I will also have a test for down's syndrome that day.
While reading the doctor's report of my last u/s, it said posterior placenta for me. I googled abt it and understood why the doc advised me to continue with more rest and minimum activity. And that its common with IVF cases and early pregnancy. Anyone else have anything to say abt it?! Also ladies, thanks for clearing my doubts regarding Folic Acid. I later found out that my iron tablets are coupled with Folic acid. So it was nt overlooked by the doc as I was doubting.
Annie - Thanks for inquiring abt me. Hope your cold is getting better. All my family members are sick with flu and cold and I am just praying to God that my immunity succeeds. But I know I am hoping against hope. Elders in the family say that sipping lukewarm water with honey after every hour may give relief in a day or two.
Babylove - So glad to know that you are doing great and your family is so excited abt your pregnancy!! Your sis has two sons from IVF? and tht too so many years back...so carrying twins runs in your blood.
Lit - I am so sorry abt the laid back attitude at your clinic, these people can be really heartless at times. I am also an avid reader, besides some spiritual books, I regularly refer 'Your week by week pregnancy by Dr Glade Curtis' and various Chicken soups editions.
alreadyblessed - I am so sorry abt the bleeding that is continuing, hope it subsides soon. But at the same time baby is doing great and that is what matters the most. You should rest to the max and let everyone around pamper you.
Jenny - Great to hear that you are doing well.
A big hello to all I have missed, it was nt intentional.
