Week 21

We went to the follow-up U/S and even though it took about 30 minutes of rolling over on my side, poking and drinking sugary drinks, Baby finally, at the very last minute, turned around so that the U/S tech could get a good view of his little baby heart. She said it looked good. I was literally 2 minutes from being sent downstairs to the fetal EKG unit. That made me nervous. His estimated weight was 14 oz and his due date had been moved to 12/30/09. Maybe I'll get my 2009 baby after all...

Baby gulps down several ounces of amniotic fluid every day, both for hydration and nutrition and to practice swallowing and digesting. And, these days, those taste buds actually work! Studies show that after birth, babies are most interested in tastes they've already experienced through amniotic fluid. Meaning, think about what you want your future child to eat as you prepare your own lunch.
