Aloha Friday

Friday, March 5, 2010

Aloha Friday again? Geez, where does the time go?! Well, it is Friday, and that means I have a genetics counseling appointment so that I can be informed that I am not only old, but that this baby I'm carrying is at risk of all sorts of things because my eggs were old when I conceived. I didn't ask for this appointment, but thanks to Tricare, I'm required to go so that I can stress and worry about even more things over the next 5 months. (BTW, I've done this before...with my first child who tested positive on the 9 week triple screen...and despite the fact that my family has very few health issues other than those that come normally with age, the news was down right scary and I was only 27 then! Thankfully he turned out fine.)

So, on to my question: This week I learned that fingerprints are actually formed by a baby's movements in the amniotic fluid in utero. How cool is that? Tell me something you learned this week. Doesn't have to be astounding...anything that's new to you will do.


Thanks for stopping by and playing along. Visit An Island Life for more Aloha Friday Fun. Have a great weekend!

That is really interesting about the finger prints. Honestly I don't really have anything to share.

I've just learned that events I create in my Blackberry aren't being transferred to the calendar on my desktop - Grrrrrr. Not the best way to start a Friday !

All that stress does not sound good at all.

Very cool fact about finger prints. Me, I learned a lot about Google and organic web tracking this week. Only because at work our company website went from page one in almost all product categories to vanishing. It was a long week....TGIF!

Well, thanks to you I just learned how fingerprints are formed. But aside from that... let's see... Oh I know! I learned that the hippocratic oath game from Ancient Greece.
