April 30, 2011 is over. My blog began on April 1st and I’ve managed to reach many health professionals in 12 blogs with parts of my new vision on the prevention of FASD. First I blog, then I tweet. And this month I may open up a Facebook account.
By far, the baby is the best, right? Yet it still begs reality to mix with, well, "reality." Technically, they are all beautiful to me. That's right. A fetus and a polliwog and a baby. So I'll pick one...hmmm...the fetus. I believe the word fetus decribes one thing only and I love that thing because that thing will indeed be a baby one day, then a toddler, then an adolescent and then a teen and then a young adult, then marriage or getting that doctorate degree, and so on. This all comes from the fetus which comes from the egg and sperm that united. My goodness, is there somemone out there calling the egg or the sperm the baby too? (Not correct yet still, OK.)
So now I have to get to some facts about your baby (fetus, sperm and egg, toddler, adolescent, teen and young adult.)
Look at the size difference between mom and fetus and imagine how large of a body it would have to be for your whole hand to grab just a finger. Then imagine that you will share an alcoholic drink the size of an olympic swimming pool:
By now there should be no debate on what a fetus is. Yet why does everyone become desensitized when they hear it. I say, "it is what it is." Here now I'll show you a more mature fetus?
Baby, Fetus, Polliwog: They are what they are!
