Whoot – Whoot!
Do you know how it feels to be like a whale with legs?
To state the obvious, that feeling isn’t going anywhere until I finally get down to the hard work (aka labor) of evicting our womb-squatter.
For the time being, our little genius is in the fat collection business!
Despite being a bipedal whale, this fetal fat collection stuff is serious business, and I’ve got to put up with it because it’s going to keep our little porker warm and healthy after birth, since her brain will be unable to regulate her tiny baby-body’s temperature.
Other good stuff from inside the womb: our little explorer’s eyes are doing lots of blinking this week because they’re now responding to light and dark!
And in life-critical physical developments: our champ’s tiny industrious bone marrow is now a major construction site for blood cells, while her super-cute adrenal glands are actually producing androgen and estrogen — which will stimulate MY body to begin milk production.
