FC: Baby's 9 months before birth Brooke rotherham
1: Month 1 Hi my name is Sophia, My parents don't really know they are having me yet, but I'm sure they will be so excited to find out the wonderful news. I'm only a couple weeks old so I'm not really looking like a baby right now. I'm very tiny right now. Everything around me is starting to shift around to get ready for me to grow. I'm hooked up to a cord though...not sure what thats all about. Ill find out soon though when my mommy goes to the doctor because shes been "getting sick" in the morning. Well not just the mornings, shes been getting sick a lot actually. Geez, sometimes i just wish i could be out of here. I have this weird fluid stuff all around me, i think its called amniotic fluid, but I'm not quiet sure about that one. So, i hope you enjoy the next 9 months of my development, because its going to be a long journey for the both of us. THE MOUNTAIN TEMPLE, WAT ARAT | November 7th
3: Month 2 I may not look like a real baby yet, but i have arms and toes, feet, fingers and hands. My urinary systems are working and so is my liver. My reproductive organs also are developing. I'm about 7.6 - 10cm long now. I'm beginning to develop toenails and my ears are starting to somewhat grow! My mommy and Daddy wont find out if I'm a girl or a boy though. They said if I'm a girl its Sophia. If I'm a boy then my name is Colby. So, Sophia it is, cause I'm a girl. Shhh, don't tell my parents yet, its a surprise. .
5: THE MOUNTAIN TEMPLE, WAT ARAT | November 8 | Month 3 My mommy is getting bigger. She's growing a bigger tummy for me to fit in as i grow a lot bigger. I'm still very little right now. About the size of a peanut! I am kind of starting to look more "real" now. I'm starting to move a lot, but my mommy can't feel it yet, cause I'm still too little for that. I am developing more of a neck though, i think its finally almost done developing, even though it will grow more as I get bigger. Everything I'm supposed to get is starting to develop! My mommy is very happy because at the end of this week there is a very very low chance for a miscarriage! My legs and arms can start to bend now. Oh and i forgot to tell you the most important news! I could hear my mommy and daddy crying today, because they got to hear my heart beat! They are so excited for me to come! I'm so excited to see my room today, mommy started painting it pink today!
7: Month 4 I am starting to grow so fast! I can't keep up with it! My eyes kind of are starting to move into its correct position. My ears are starting to shift to the side of my head too! I have this weird hair COVERING my ENTIRE body! I think It's called Lanugo, but thats just a guess. Thats not the only hair i have! I am starting to grow my eye brow hair and my hair on the top of my head! My nervous system fully working now! oh, and more good news!!! My body is starting to grow so fast! There is bad news about that though, my head is still huge, but my body will grow into it real fast, at least i hope so.
9: KRABI, SOUTH END | November 9 | Month 5 I doubled in weight on my last visit to the doctor. I am about 5 inches now too. I'm getting fat, its helping with metabolism and heat production. My hair, eye lashes, and eye browns are starting to fill in more. And my lungs are starting to exhale amniotic fluid and the urinary system, and circulatory systems are both working. I AM GROWING UP SO FAST! in less than no time i will be out of here! My taste buds are growing in too, i guess thats a good thing, cause when i come out of my mommy i can eat real things. The vernix begins to develop.
11: Month 6 Today my mommy started talking and singing to me, because i can hear and respond to sound now. My muscles are getting really strong, and they are growing every single day! I know I'm going to be a very active kid too, because my mommy likes to run and do exercises, i can feel it! I'm about 8 inches now. My skin is very wrinkled too, because the doctor said i have a lot more fat to grow! Mom is getting really big, she will get bigger as i get bigger though!! only have 3 more months to go till i can finally meet my family!

I can also cry, but i don't want to put more stress on my mom so i won't do that. My mom has gained about 22 pounds, which is a lot, but its only because I am a growing baby! My eyes are always blue, and i can tell between bright colors, they hurt my eyes a lot! I started kicking today, mommy way really happy! I think she got really annoyed of it though! I can't help it, shes always active, so I have to be too!
15: Month 8 I am about 19.2 inches long. I am also about 4 pounds. I fill almost all the space in my mommy's uterus. I am practicing opening my eyes and breathing, only one more month left! mommy is starting to go in for a lot of check ups now though, just to make sure I'm healthy i guess. My mom finished my baby room today and i am ready to see my family! I still have enough room to do somersaults though but i don't think my mommy likes that very much. I also started to kick A LOT. I know mommy doesn't like that, she complains to daddy a lot about how i am a very active baby!

22: AT THE START of the Rattanakosin or Bangkok period in the late eighteenth century, when the capital was finally settled at Bangkok, an elephant kraal was established in Krabi by order of Chao Phraya Nakorn (Noi), the governor of Nakhon Si Thammarat, which was by then a part of the Thai Kingdom. He sent his vizier, the Phra Palad, to oversee this task, which was to ensure a regular supply of elephants for the larger town. So many followers emigrated in the steps of the Phra Palad that soon Krabi had a large community in three different boroughs: Pakasai, Khlong Pon, and Pak Lao. x | In 1872, King Chulalongkorn graciously elevated these to town status, called Krabi, a word that preserves in its meaning the monkey symbolism of the old standard. The town's first governor was Luang Thep Sena, though it continued a while as a dependency of Nakhon Si Thammarat. This was changed in 1875, when Krabi was raised to a fourth-level town in the old system of Thai government. Administrators then reported directly to the central government in Bangkok, and Krabi's history as a unique entity separated from the other provinces, had begun.
