Week 17 ultrasound

Here are some pictures from yesterday's peek at the baby, aka the best television show ever. The technician said our child is "gorgeous" and "cooperative" and "a real character." Therefore we like her very much. (The technician, not the child, whose gender we won't know till it's here. I mean, we like the child, too. But you see what I mean.)

At this visit, we could actually see organs for the first time, including all four chambers of the heart. We also saw two legs, but only one arm. I'm opting not to dwell on that.


Here's a closeup of the face, wherein my child looks like a bald, grinning, one-eyed clown pirate.


Some people may think this photo shows the baby trying to suck its thumb. But if it takes after me, Sal or Chickenbone, it is probably saying "Uh, trying to sleep in here, do you mind?"

"HER?!" Surely you are referencing the ultrasound technician and not the baby. Apparently, the gender will remain a mystery until sometime in mid-October.

Ha! Holy crap. Yes, I meant the technician. The gender is still a surprise!

Awesome! Isn't it amazing? Glad to hear the gender didn't jump out and surprise you.

Baby looks great! And I'm learning so much about anatomy along the way ...
