Just a week ago there was encouraging news that choline dietary supplement improves a fetus' brain growth with benefits that last a lifetime. Now this.

"They have concluded some male babies' central nervous systems might have been affected by the process,........."

Ergo, ultrasonic scans are blatently sexist.

Carly Simon's the only one on this LIST I'd like to snuggle but it ain't a bad lineup 'cept for the thespians.

Cool link, Carlos! Interesting how they are mostly male. I had ultrasounds at about 20 weeks with both of my boys; they are both left handed. But then again, my doubts that Ludwig Von Beethoven and Rachmaninoff had been scanned.

Carlos, I resent your attitude towards thesbians.

Anyway, I'd like to snuggle with all these cuties (in their prime):

Greta Garbo, Nicole Kidman, Goldie Hawn, Diane Keaton, Shirley MacLaine, Marilyn Monroe, Julia Roberts, Natalie Cole.

It CAN'T be. Actually, it CAN'T be. My son was the only one to have the ultrasound [I think], along with the amniocentesis. He's left- handed, but so was my mother's mother and the son of one of my mother's sisters. These folks didn't even have HOSPITALS, let alone ultrasound. I think it's genetic.

Cin: I hope your sons have better penmanship than mine.
