Baby Natural is looking at you... literally. Your little gal can now open and close her pretty peepers! And while her eyesight is still fairly poor, she can sense bright lights. (You may even see her react if you shine a flashlight on your belly. ?)
Speaking of eyes, did you know that eye pigment doesn't fully bloom until at least 9 months, and sometimes up to two years? Yes, most brown-eyed people will begin life with darker blue, almost grey eyes. Whereas true blue-eyed individuals will have brighter, lighter blue eyes.
So yeah, your brown-eyed girl will likely start out blue!
Now that Baby Natural is getting bigger, she'll likely start to settle into her more “permanent” position. Now, more than ever, you want to be sure you’re doing belly mapping and your pregnancy exercises to do everything you can to make sure your pelvis (and baby) are in excellent placement for a natural delivery. ??
Speaking of great births, have you been drinking your red raspberry leaf tea daily? Studies show that this uterine tonic tea can help with labor!
Also, if you haven’t done so yet, it’s time to get going with a childbirth education class. Check out our article on which childbirth education class is right for you.

You're constantly on the move, buzzing around all day getting things done. So you’d think by bedtime, you’d sleep like a baby. (BTW, if you want a refresher on how to sleep safely while pregnant, check it here.)
But, not so fast. You toss. You turn. You add even more pillows. And instead of sleeping, you find yourself staring at the ceiling or counting sheep.
Truth is, you’re bigger than before, and getting comfortable just isn’t as easy. You can also thank all of your surging hormones, which can mess with sleep cycles.
But know that there are some natural remedies and lifestyle changes (don’t worry, they aren’t too drastic) that can help you sleep better and deeper—and remedy your pregnancy insomnia.
