I am officially in my second trimester. At fourteen weeks my baby is now the size of a lemon. It is so much more human that a piece of fruit, obviously, but perhaps even more human than many of you would ever imagine. Reaching this pregnancy land mark has me thinking about a very intense and life altering experience I had last year during my OB clinical rotation. Some of you may remember that experience, because I wrote about it on here.
Lets just say that this week I can't think about the baby inside me without thinking of the another, who's hand I held. I can't think of the happiness and hormones pumping through my blood without thinking of the mother, silently crying and barricaded in her hospital room.
A baby's hand just like my baby's, only this little hand would never reach for it's mothers.
That's what I will be thinking of this week....
