Right now, Bebo is very tiny, the size of an apple seed. Its heart, spinal cord, muscle, and bones are beginning to develop. The placenta, which nourishes Bebo, and the amniotic sac, which provides a warm and save environment where Bebo can move easily, are forming too. The umbilical cord forms and connects him/her to my blood supply.
It is so weird to think that all of this is happening inside me right now. So far the only pregnancy symptoms I have had up to now are: fatigue, frequent urination (kind of annoying), bloating, sore (and growing) breasts, and heightened sense of smell. I know it is really early in the pregnancy (most people don't even know they are pregnant yet), but I have not felt queasy at all. The heightened sense of smell relates to everything I smell, smells like a baby. It is so odd, almost like my body is trying to send some kind of subliminal message to take a pregnancy test if I hadn't already.
Andrew turned on a song the other day that brought tears to my eyes. He said that all day (the day we found out) he kept thinking about the lyrics to this song. So today, baby Bebo, your daddy and I dedicate this song to you. We love you more than words can explain and cannot wait to see and feel you grow.
