Jon and I went to a baby fair last weekend and we got a lot of pamphlets and free samples, etc. We were reading this one book that we got and it showed very briefly the different stages of pregnancy. At the 34 week mark it says "melanin is not being produced in the eyes yet, so all babies have blue eyes right now."
I found this interesting because one thing that really bothered us about losing Katrina (other than the obvious), is the fact that we'd never get to see her eyes open, let alone her eye colour. Because Jon is Chinese (with brown eyes) and I'm Caucasian (with blue eyes), the chances of our children having blue eyes is very, very rare, but Jon had always thought it would be so cool if one of our children took the recessive gene and ended up having blue eyes. So I know this isn't quite the same as taking the recessive gene, but I think we can safely say that even though we never got to see Katrina's eyes, she did have blue eyes under her closed eyelids at the time she was born
Yes, I'm weird, but little things like this can really make my day!
That's something that bothered me about Ella, i'd never see her eyes open....With all my kids their eyes were dark blue when born and then lightened up...I have 2 kids with blue eyes and 2 with green (actually i'd say 2 1/2 green, one of my daughters has blueish greenish eyes)....I also have 2 blondes and 2 light browns, so I wanted to know what color hair Ella would of had.
Well I am not so sure about that blue eye stuff. Because both of my precious preemies had Black eyes! The nurse told me all the early babies had black eyes. Genevive's were still black when she passed away. I envision her with brown eyes, because she looked so much like Alex when he was a baby. I put some links in case anyone is interested, but didn't want to post them directly in case someone doesn't want to see babies today.
