Babies Learn to Recognize Words in the Womb
Be careful what you say around a pregnant woman. As a fetus grows inside a mother’s belly, it can hear sounds from the outside world—and can understand them well enough to retain memories of them after birth, according to new research.
It may seem implausible that fetuses can listen to speech within the womb, but the sound-processing parts of their brain become active in the last trimester of pregnancy, and sound carries fairly well through the mother’s abdomen. “If you put your hand over your mouth and speak, that’s very similar to the situation the fetus is in,” says cognitive neuroscientist Eino Partanen of the University of Helsinki. “You can hear the rhythm of speech, rhythm of music, and so on.”

Chart actually made sense this week.  3DPO today.  If counting the day of O and the 5 days previous, we dtd 4 times.  So far the 2ww has been less crazy than last cycle because I’m being a lot more chill about it.

either this is a short cycle (I vary between 28-32) or my body is insane

this is the first time i’ve actually tracked cm

and there were only 3 or 4 days between AF and fertile CM

if we were trying to avoid that would be very annoying

anyway, today is CD14 so O is coming soon
