I hope everyone reads my original post as 'this is neat because it's so amazing' NOT 'this is neat because they made this poor baby cry'! I realized it might seem to say that, although I didn't intend that. I think it's so sad, I just want to hug that poor little thing (girl I think I heard them say).
Anyway, very cool. I think I read that the fetus/baby was at 23 weeks gestation, did anyone else catch that? It's just so amazing they caught that, although if they did it on purpose then that's SO inhumane!
Part of the article with it had a quote by one of the researchers who said that babies in utero have all the same fuctions as a baby already born, just 'breathe' air differently-one gets it from the umbilical cord and one gets it from their lungs. So, they cry, suck thumbs, open eyes, etc which is so cool, I wish I knew these things when I had my first and was pregnant, although there's nothing I'd do differently.
Anyway, great luck on all your pregnancies and births! Congrats!
