an ultrasound pic!

Meet our new little inkblot. :) Just 20 weeks old this week.


You can't tell in this particular picture, but it's a boy! No, we don't have a name yet. We are considering several, and we keep waffling...I think we might just wait until this one is born and see what fits!

It was so fun to "meet" this baby. He was moving a lot, waving his arms and legs around, which is so odd to see because I still can't really feel very much movement. They tried to get a profile of his face, but every which way she approached he kept turning his head toward the ultrasound wand! We saw all the parts...beating heart, stomach, bladder, kidneys, spine, etc. So amazing, all of that going on and he only weighs 13 ounces, about 6-7 inches long (that's crown to rump, not the whole baby)...you could just hold him in one hand.

Congratulations! He looks great. (BTW what is that little outline picture in the bottom right hand of your photo? I have never seen that on an ultrasound before. :) )

haha! Oh, that little naked headless woman? I should have cropped her out I guess. That's at the bottom of all of them, I think it's to show the location and angle that the picture was taken. There's that white line on the lower belly, that's about where the baby is lying now.
