Ultrasound

Today we had our second ultrasound. The first one was taken at 8 weeks, so there wasn't too much to see. This time around we really got to know our baby for the first time and take a good look at him/her. The technician took pictures of all of the organs and was able to measure the femur, head and abdomen. From that she was able to determine that the baby weighs approximately 0.8 pounds! It was amazing to see all of the organs and bones so clearly. We could see all of the baby's vertebrae, its little toes moving and even it's brain matter! We are happy to report that baby is healthy and is right on schedule with its due date! We have pictures that we need to scan and upload so that we can share with everybody. Jason also brought our camera along so we were able to take a few videos of what the baby is up to in my belly. Enjoy!

  1. It is so neat that you can see the spine, head and other parts so clearly when the baby is so small! Did you look away when they examined the boy or girl parts?
