I think most of my blog readers (hi Mom!) already know this, but since I hadn’t said anything on this here blog yet, I thought I should make an official announcement: I’m pregnant. I’m about 20 weeks along now, which is half-way. I can’t believe that I’m this far along. I only just told people at work last week!
We had a hard beginning to this pregnancy (which I’ll get into in another post on another day), but everything is looking up now. One of the side effects of this is that I’ve had an ultrasound at every medical appointment I’ve had so far. We’ve amassed quite a collection of ultrasound pictures now, so last night I hooked up the scanner and digitized them. We have so many, in fact, that I didn’t even bother to scan some of the earlier ones. They mostly just look like a grey blob inside a black blob, so no one is really missing anything.
This first batch is from the Ultrasound we had during my CVS test. That test was performed at only 11 weeks and Zach and I were delighted to see so much detail on the ultrasound. They even got a couple of good profile shots. In the photo below, the baby’s head is on the left side, his spine is at the bottom and you can see a little foot on the right side. (Click any of these photos to see a larger view on Flick.)
In this one, he’s kind of rolled over and we are looking at him from the back. Head is on the left, booty is on the right.
This one is from the amnio we had at 15 weeks. The head is on the right side here. The two dots to the left are the hands.
These are from the big ultrasound we had on Wednesday. Everything looked perfect and the doctor and ultrasound techs kept saying things like, “perfect”, “beautiful” and “A-OK”.
This first one is the proof that he’s a boy (but we already knew that).
Cute little feet!
The ultrasound tech took three pictures and taped them together into a whole baby in this one. On one hand, it’s kind of neat. On the other hand, I think it looks a little creepy.
This one is my favorite. It’s a profile shot of the baby’s head and his little hand is waving at us. Hi Baby!
More little feet. Awwwwwww!
And finally, this one shows the baby up top and a print out of the heartbeat at the bottom.
