12 Week Ultra Sound Pictures!

This morning S and I went in for her 12 week NT scan, where they do an ultra sound to check for a few disorders and take a few drops of blood.  Everything so far is within the normal range but we should know more in 7-10 days.  It was so exciting to do this ultra sound, the little bean actually looks like a baby now!  It was pretty amazing to see it move it's little arms and legs around and twist and just jump about!  I could hardly believe it.  I can't wait till we can do our next one, but I'm sure that won't be for another month or two.  I tried to get the tech to make a guess of boy vs. girl, but she said that she couldn't even begin to make a guess for our baby because of the quality of the picture and the position and what not.  So, sigh, I will have to wait some more.  In the meantime though, I've made a poll that's on the right side of the blog, so be sure to vote if you think boy or girl!  I'll leave you with a few pictures:
Here is the baby's profile and that thing sticking up is an arm with a wee little hand.

Here is another profile shot.
Here is a little hand and arm waving hello at you!

And then this one is my favorite, it is the little legs and feet! 

In other news, S has reached that magical 13th week and still feels crappy.  She has been going longer and longer feeling better but the last two days have been puke city for the poor thing.  She has an appointment this afternoon with the doctor and we are really hoping that they will tell her that she can stop taking the progesterone, as we think that this extra boost of hormones is what is keeping her feeling so sick.  We will see.


  1. What beautiful photos! I'm so jealous you got to see your little one! ;)
    poor s. It's no fun to be sick all the time.

  2. Love the legs!! We had our NT scan today too!! :D

  3. those are great photos!! i'm voting girl, look at those defined cheekbones! ;)

  4. You got some great profiles! I definitely felt better when I got off progesterone; I hope the same is true for S.
