Response to sound grows more consistent toward the end of the seventh month, when the network of nerves to the ear is complete. He also continues to take small breaths, and although he's only breathing in water and not air, it's still good practice for when he's born."

Good thing I ordered more maternity clothes last night. Looks like I am going to need something to make it fun to get dressed in the morning. I also got the invitation to my baby shower next month. I am so looking forward to seeing all my friends. And I am sure they will enjoy seeing me in my condition. Would it be wrong to charge people money to touch my belly?
