    Hi

    I have been looking at embryo/fetal development pictures on the net - like the ones that show you what baby looks like each week of pregnancy.......

    anyone else had a look? some of them are quite detailed, like on babycenter. It's amazing that at 6 weeks preg the embryo is still only the size of a grain of rice, yet it has limbs growing which it can flap about!

    Anyone found any really good ones they would like to share a link with me? Or am i the only nerd:rofl:

    Yeah, it's really helped me attach with our bubs.
    When we found out s/he was the size of a sesame seed... now a mondo Bazil nut ;D
    I love the parentsconnect calendar.

    I've also seens some awesome scans an in utero movies on youtube.

    However!!!!!!!

    WARNING

    When my best friend was pregnant last year I looked on youtube, and got linked through to some REALLY harrowing videos of abortions and all sorts of real, but scare tactic films.

    I did come away thinking all young women should know what an 8w baby is like in order to avoid having to ever face a hard decision... but it was really scary that it was so easy to stumble upon them.

    I managed not to see any linked this time when I looked, but I would HATE for someone who's pregnant to see those things.

    xx

    Seraphim, i know what you mean. I know this one girl who has had 3 .... yes 3 abortions in her life an she is only 22. She got pregnant AGAIN but decided to keep it and gave birth to a healthy baby boy. She was lucky though, and in no way shape or form should abortion be a form of birth control.

    I watched a video on YouTube called "Silent Scream" which shows on ultrasound what happens to a 12 week fetus when being aborted. I was horrified at what i saw, i wont go into detail incase i upset anyone, but it should be shown as an eye opener to kids in school. A friend of mine said it was actually shown in her school when she was younger, as the video is about 20 years old.

    Some people have no choice to have a termination i had to have a medical one as my baby had severe abnormalitys at my 1st scan this was 2 yrs ago and broke me to do it, yes i dont agree to people who use it as a form of birth control but some people have no choice. sorry for rant!
    some of them sites are really good if you want images of the bubs at weeks you are at google on images the weeks and loads pics come up xx

    Yes of course we understand for medical reasons hunni, totally agree with you on that one. The only way its unacceptable is if its like you said, just used as a form of birth control.

    Hope i didnt upset you then! :hugs:

    moomoo - its a fab site isnt it!! I check it everyday even though iv read through the whole thing like, 4 times haha!!
