so... this post is a bit of a teaser... we have an ultrasound appointment for this afternoon, but since I am starting 21 weeks - the baby is going to be pretty big, and I realized that I hadn't put up our first two pictures yet... so, here are the first two, and I will post the pictures from today's ultrasound whenever we get them... by the way, the baby has been very very active lately - I can fell him/her kicking or elbowing or sumersaulting or lap swimming or something lots of times during the day!!! I LOVE IT!!!
You can see by the numbers at the bottom of this first picture that it was when the baby was about 8 weeks and 2 days ... Kaiser set my due date as March 4th based on its size then. For those of you who need help with ultrasound pictures - the baby is facing to the left, with its back on the right - the head is about the same size as the rest of the body - it was so cool, we could already see little arms and legs in this one.
This picture was about 4 weeks later - around 12 weeks - sorry for the wrinkled picture, but it was handled by several nieces and nephews before being scanned... The baby is on the far left of the picture with its head up top and back on the left side - its legs and arms facing toward the right - the doctor said we have a very active baby because he/she was moving all around during this one! - we could see the baby kicking and it looked like it was sucking its thumb!
