Our Little Mango

Vernix caseosa, a greasy white substance made of lanugo, oil and dead skin cells (yum) now coats baby's skin, shielding it from the amniotic fluid. (Picture yourself after a nine-month bath, and the need for protection makes sense.) You might actually get to see the vernix at birth, especially if baby is premature.

Not much going on this week...we go in for our ultrasound tomorrow (Monday the 20th) and I am excited to see the baby move and know that everything is ok...and I told Odin about going to see the baby on TV and asked him if he wanted to sing and he very excitedly said Yes Mom I can't wait to see what he thinks especially since it doesn't look like a baby on those TV we will see...


  1. WOOHOO!!! I'm so excited!!!! Can't wait to see pictures of that little mango!!!!

  2. What a fun experience for Odin! Savy really enjoyed watching the big screen of Vivian when we did her ultrasound!
