    The fetus recognizes scents? SCENTS????? How in the world does the olfactory nerves work in a sac of fluid? one that the environment never changes?

    dreams at 30 weeks? I'm surprised that its that late actually.

    I consider this more theory, although it at least backs some of it up with good science and evidence

    I think abortion is wrong as well...I just don't think the government should be making that difficult a decision for a woman, especially when HER life is on the line. Some of this person's theories sound like poppycock to me. I have a hard time believing he can actually tell if a fetus in utero is actually having a dream.

    Actually, a fetus can recognize scents, because when I was prego with my son, there were certain things that when I smelled them, he would move and kick. These things were chocolate, ANY citrus fruit, esp. oranges, spaghetti and garlic. No matter what time of day, if I smelled these, he would move and kick. They don't smell them through their nose. It is through the mother's oxygen that it learns to recognize this stuff. I read a study in a parenting magazine (i would have to do a search to find it) where Dr's had women who were 8 months pregnant, smell certain objects every day through pregnancy till birth, and they had other women avoid the smell. when the babies were born, at 2 months old, they placed the scents in front of the babies, and the ones that had not 'smelled' the scents in utero, did not react when presented with them. The ones that reacted (turning head, trying to grab item, pulling item toward them, etc.) were the ones that 'smelled' the items in utero
