Baby's First Picture

We had our ultrasound Saturday and the doctor said everything looks good. It was really cool to see the spine, toes and the heart beating. We would think we were looking at the baby's head and the tech would say it was the belly. We were only able to tell what things were on our own about half the time. In case you can't decipher the image above, the head is on the bottom right and the butt is up in the air with their knees at their nose. The little one has already mastered some yoga it looks like. The picture below is primarily just the head top on the left.

We were able to resist the urge to look when she was examining the nether region so we are continuing with the plan to find out the sex at birth. Even if we had looked we probably wouldn't have had a clue what we were looking at though.

Oh yea and they tell you to drink 5 cups of water 1 hour before the ultrasound. Not only is that an insane amount of water for anyone to drink, but a pregnant woman. I had to pee so bad when we got to the clinic and of course they wouldn't let me go! Luckily they only needed a full bladder for the first 5 minutes or so of the ultrasound so she let me relieve myself so I could enjoy the images of the baby.

My baby pooch has started poking out in the last few weeks. I am kinda at the point where people may wonder if I am pregnant or eating too many muffins for an extra big muffin top!

I am really feeling much better which is good since we just got back from a trip to Boston and Nantucket for a friends wedding that was planned pre-pregnancy. I was glad to have been in my second trimester and past the sickness and over tiredness.

For a couple weeks I have been feeling the baby moving around and now that I am 17 weeks along, they are apparently the size of a turnip!
