13 weeks - and an ultrasound!

Yesterday I officially entered the second trimester AND had the best day of this pregnancy so far - Chris and I got to see the baby! We had our NT scan (which screens for abnormalities like Down's Syndrome or Trisomy 13/18), and part of the screening involved an ultrasound. It was the first time Chris has gotten to see the baby, and he was memorized. Little Bowser was doing all sorts of acrobatics - flipping around, bouncing up and down, waving...it was absolutely amazing. I can't TELL you how amazing. I wish we had a video of it. Here's a picture of her or him waving:


For you non-ultrasound techs out there, the head is the oval on the left, the body is the larger oval on the lower right, and the little arm is sticking out of the body at a 90 degree angle, with the hand by the face.

Or here's the annotated version for those of you who still see gray and black blotches against a gray and black background:

I'll add more pictures when I actually get the pics scanned instead of just taking a picture of a picture with my phone.

We also scheduled our next ultrasound, where, if baby cooperates, we get to find out if it's a boy or a girl!! April 16!

  1. This is awesome! Congrats! Seeing the baby at 12 weeks was the coolest this for us! I couldn't believe "it" was flipping around so much in there. -Blissandbaby from The Bump.
