Sonogram From Last Month

Here's little baby's 2nd sonogram from 5 weeks ago. We get to see him or her again in two weeks at the 20 week ultrasound. I'm pretty excited to see how he/she has changed.

If you've had a sonogram, you know that this picture is crap compared to the clarity of the video image screen. The tech lady was moving the sensor thingy really  hard against my stomach, and it was pissing the baby off.  It was punching her like it was kickboxing.  It was really cool.

It was shocking to see arms, legs, hands, feet, a nose, and a perfect profile, after only seeing a gummi-bear-like blob just a month earlier.   It's unreal to know it's moving around that much but that I can't feel it. (I attribute that to my rock-hard abs. No for real, I have pretty good abs.)

As far as gender, I'm thinking boy.  I don't know why.  Probably because my sister's first two were boys and I'm used to the idea. Maybe because I've had no sickness or moodiness, and those are two things I associate with girls, or at least the kind of girl I am! Whatever.  I am totally okay with boy or girl.

So amazing! I loved each and everyone one of my ultrasounds. By baby #3 I was able to tell the tech what was what. I think I could seriously enjoy being an ultrasound tech and watching all those wonderful little creatures of God floating around, kicking and punching in their mama's wombs!

Glad to hear that they found everything they needed to during the ultrasound! It's always so reassuring! And look at that profile! Love it!

So jealous that you are not experiencing the sickness or moodiness! But I AM happy for you! I can't imagine how wonderful it must be to have the experience of carrying a tiny life within without all the discomforts!

I think the sonagram was when I first said, "Oh, crap - what have I gotten us into!"

Your first round of non-alcoholic drinks is on me Thursday.
