A Shades Review
K: Anastacia finds out she is six to seven weeks pregnant, and witnesses her baby’s heartbeat on an ultrasound with help from her gynecologist. She’s later attacked by her fruit n’ nut bar of an ex-boss, who kicks her in the stomach. She is rushed to the hospital as a result, though none of the doctors seem to know that an average fetus at six to seven weeks is roughly the size of a lentil.
I’m sure it’s a ridiculously bad movie and I’d rather undergo minor surgery than watch it but the snark in this part of the review is utterly unjustified. I saw Klara’s heartbeat at 5 weeks. And that was 2 years and 8 months ago. I’m sure that the technology which allowed that has only grown more sophisticated. So what? I saw it, and it was the most wonderful thing I’d ever seen because Klara was very wanted. And yes, she was very tiny at that point, so there wasn’t much beyond the heartbeat. But it was there.
