Baby Baby!

So we had our 20 week ultrasound (a week early I guess, since im 19 weeks today)....but here are pictures and video clips from our visit. Our little baby weighs 10 ounces and is in the 48th percentile for size (sweet relief!) He has all necessary parts and was very active (yawning, swallowing, hiccupping, and sucking on fingers AND a foot...) Unfortunately baby was lying on its back and the spine, heart, and gender were IMPOSSIBLE to see clearly enough so we get to come back in for a second follow up scan in a few weeks. The u/s tech was all apologies since she couldnt see the gender, but we assured her that we wanted a surprise and that even if we could
see - we didnt want to know!

Here is the babys face. Ok, so it looks slightly jurrasic park...but I blame the shadows.

Left leg, crossed over the right leg

And its adorable foot!


Smacking its lips, or swallowing

Putting its foot in its mouth

And there you have the first of many future Baby installments! I think I am finally feeling less anxious and more excited now that we've seen an outline of its face. No hideous far so good!

Gabe, I came across you and your wife's blog and wanted to say hi. This is Whitney from Ricks. Congrats on the baby. That is so exciting!!! I am due to have my 2nd baby in may. Kids are a lot of work but they are fun!!! Sounds like things are going great. Just wanted to say Hi.

Sorry I posted it in the wrong one first, so you will probably see this message twice.

Maybe it's the hormones, but I totally almost started crying AT WORK when I saw the hiccup video. These are so amazing! Congrats again, I am SO excited for you!

What a good-lookn' baby. Like it's even possible that it wouldn't be.

I'm so glad that everything went well. I can't believe you are waiting to find out. I am way too impatient for that. You have some serious balls! It's weird you may seriously have your uterus. I guess we'll have to wait and see!

The ultrasound made it much more real to me and Steve to actually see the baby. Congratulations on a healthy baby Christy!!!

My last comment sounded weird. I know you are prego, I was talking about my own ultrasound with Jake. Anywho.. have a great day!

Aww Christy this videos came out so awesome. My kid didn't do as many tricks like put her foot in its mouth. Very, very cool. If you are planning to get one of those 3-D ultra sounds things done I suggest you do it quick, before your little one gets to big & squished. The pictures never look as good when they are that big. Around now seems like a perfect time. Have any names picked out yet?
