Their brain is designating specialized areas for smell, taste, hearing, vision, and touch and he or she may be able to hear my voice now, which makes me wonder what they think about their future mother whose most common dialog … Continue reading Bump Report: Week Nineteen: Now With Extra Bumpy Gender-Like Details
