One of the few noticeable differences in how I feel is that I have to get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, something I rarely used to do. Otherwise I feel normal.
I am 6 weeks along and I am told that the baby’s heart is already beating even though he/she is only the size of a lentil. So why does that little baby affect my bladder so much? Apparently there has been an increase in what I like to call its entourage; all the tissues around the baby that help it grow. Oh, and hormones. If I had a nickel for every time I read that something is caused by an increase in progesterone. Progesterone, you're a wonderful and wicked substance, aren't ya?
