As Seen on WebMD

WebMD included this prediction for this stage in my pregnancy:

As baby gets bigger and stronger this month, you may be experiencing leg cramps and mild swelling of ankles and feet, difficulty sleeping, shortness of breath, lower abdominal achiness, clumsiness or scattered Braxton Hicks contractions. You may also be urinating more frequently again as the uterus continues to push on your bladder.

Well, no Braxton Hicks so far. One no in seven choices is good news, right? But seriously, the real good news is the last sentence in this paragraph about Pomegranate:

Your baby measures about 10 inches from crown to rump, or a total length of about 15.75 inches from head to toe, and weighs about 2.4 pounds. Brain waves show rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, which means your baby may be dreaming. Eyelids are opening. Branches of lungs are developing, so there’s a good chance that baby would survive if born prematurely now.

    I never got BH contractions. I didn’t even get the leg cramps. I say the less “bad” symptoms the better! 😉
