7 Amazing Things Babies Do in the Womb (PHOTOS)

baby in wombA baby inside your belly is not just sitting there waiting to be born. Every moment of womb time is taken up by growing, developing, learning, and changing and that's just BEFORE making his or her way down the birth canal and out into the world.

Crazy, right?

A baby in the womb is doing so many shocking things. Not only are they learning to move their fingers, toes and limbs (something we all feel so distinctly), they are also sometimes dreaming, sometimes yawning, sometimes sucking their thumb, and a million other truly astounding things.

Amazing. I could swear this pro-abortion group of blog writers here on the Stir were adamant that it's not really a baby while in the womb?!

I guess if it's planned and/or wanted then it's an adorable miracle of life baby, if not it's just a blob of parasitic cells fetus that is inconvenient until they can be sucked out by PP.

My daughter was always sticking her tongue out in the ultrasound.  First thing she did after being born - stick her tongue out!

Get it right! Its NOT a BABY- its a FETUS! Its a parasitic clump of mindless cells that cannot think dream or feel! Didn't you ALL know the vagina or a c-section incision is a mystical magical baby door where a parasitic fetus amazingly turns into a baby as it comes out? Seriously! Get it right. BABY. Ha! Smdh. . .

Their are so many miserable up their own fundaments around. Do they ever see the glory of a morning sunrise, the dew on a cobweb, the beauty of the frozen puddle - the unforgettable delicious smell of a baby - no, it;s just boring yawn science to them - who needs romance, joy, wonder when you can have the'black hole' beckoning to explore
