Mommies Carry Their Families With Them Inside

I recently read an article on BabyCenter about how a pregnant woman will carry little bits of DNA (fetal cells) inside her decades after the birth of her baby. Since half of a baby's DNA comes from Dad, she's also carrying his DNA along with her as well. This was fascinating to me. I absolutely love the idea of having a little piece of my family with me all the time. It's oddly comforting.

On another note, my doctor has been asking me if I've had any visual disturbances (seeing spots) along with my PIH. Well, today I think I saw them... twice... but they were only there for about 30 seconds both times. Little black spots moving around really fast in front on my eyes. I was in the car with my mom, but tried to relax some when I got home. I told her about them, but she didn't seem especially concerned and just told me it had a lot to do with the high blood pressure and I should call my doctor Monday morning.
