ultrasounds! lets see baby's first pictures!

I just went for my first appointment yesterday. And I know a lot of you ladies arent planning on getting ultrasounds done until later on in your pregnancy. But I thought it would be nice to start a thread so we can all see each others babies!

I was just comparing my pic with all of yours. Why is my uterus look so mangled and hole-y? All of yours looks so smooth! Maybe I do have fibroids or something (which would explain my uterus measuring ahead so far). Hmmmm. I'll have to go back and look at my old ultrasounds from previous pregnancies.

Everything checked out okay! The ultrasound technician was wonderful. Then the doctor came in for an introduction. He said that everything physically looked good, but because I opted to not have genetic testing done, and since I'm now a "high risk" for genetical abnormalities (I'm 35. Woah!) he couldn't assure me that downs or some other genetic abnormality had occurred. This I know, but his delivery and the look of judgement on his face was felt by all of us.
Didn't find out the sex. I was surprised to hear in the room that my husband wanted to know. I thought we'd discussed it and were both on board with not knowing...
My 13 year old came with, and he was happy to see this little being. It was nice to have him there.
This little sprout is squirmy! I got to see the range of movement all over my belly that it has the ability to take up. Much more than I thought!

Here "s/he" is! Giving us the thumbs up that all is okay! (I know "she" looks like all other ultrasound pictures, but it's still nice to share, right?)
I had a strong hunch looking at the screen that this little being is a boy. Hoping for a girl, but after seeing the screen, I'm sure I'll be quite pleased with whatever we get!

THAT LITTLE FOOT. Omg omg omg. So wonderful! And I don't care what anybody says, I LOVE the profile shots and never feel like "one looks just like the next"--especially once the baby is born and you can compare how they looked in utero with what they look like on the outside. I still pull out my son's ultrasound and look at his little nose... Six years on, it hasn't changed a bit.

My 20-week ultrasound is two weeks from tomorrow. I am impatient!

Happyday: Beautiful! It's so neat to see them moving all over the place in there.

My 20-week u/s is in two weeks, and we aren't finding out the sex either. DH won't be with me because he is working, but that's okay. I don't think he has ever gone to one with me. I can't believe this pregnancy will be almost 1/2 over in 2 weeks!

Here they do "the" ultrasound at 22 weeks, not 20. So I have about six weeks to go. Really looking forward to it. The weeks seem to just be flying by, so I'm sure it will be here in no time.

Three kids and one on the way.

It is beautiful to see them moving around in there. I absolutely fell in love. The most amazing thing for me to see was the spine. I'm not sure why I loved it so much, but seeing it was very profound for me.
I'm so excited for all of you to see you little ones! I can't stop looking at the pictures! It's like I'm a teenager in love!

Tee, I never thought to find my ultrasound pics of the boys. I don't even remember having an ultrasound with them! I kept thinking, "I did this with the boys, too?" I was younger and in a different space of being able to appreciate the process.

There was an awesome moment when both the feet were aligned, like you'd take a picture of your newborn with the palms of the feet together. It lasted just a second, though, and she wasn't able to take the pic long enough. Man, what a great day. I was happy before, but seeing it really puts it in perspective... There is a LIFE in there!!!

Here's a detail of one of the ultrasound pictures from our first attempt at getting an NT scan at 12.5 weeks, during which the baby was waaay too wiggly and not posing correctly. It was great to see the baby moving around so much, though, and I'm pretty sure at one point we got to see the baby licking her hand.

Here's our little girl's closeup. Given our family history with craniofacial differences, the ultrasound folks strongly suggested that we come in for a detailed followup scan around 32 weeks (and our daughter's geneticist said the same thing), so we're leaning toward doing it. I must admit, while we're generally pretty non-interventionist and would usually prefer to do a low number of scans... It would be nice to have an excuse to see her again, and have our first and probably only 3D scan ever!

This is our boy. I can't believe it's a boy



I remember being able to tell our 2nd had a rounder fuller face than our 1st. I need to go back and compare and see if I can tell with this new little nameless one .

20 week ultrasound this morning. Baby gave us a big wave (which I texted out to my parents, sister and aunt with a "Hi Grandma!" etc. caption). Also got a cute tiny little foot picture.

Baby didn't flip over to get a good view of the heart, so I have to go back again next week for a rescan.

I learned that the baby is a boy and he's measuring at 1 lb. and 2 oz. He was really strong and didn't like the ultrasound technician pushing on him so much with the wand thing. He kept covering his face with his hands and arms. Sometimes she even hurt me, she was pushing it so hard against him. It was nice to see that now they take a measurement and then move the wand away and bring it back and take the same measurement. So they measure twice just to be sure they were accurate. I also think that the pictures get clearer with every baby. On this one she was able to show us the nose and lips. And the pictures on the screen just seem so much clearer than the ones she printed off for us to take home.

That's so exciting, Valerie--congratulations on a boy!! I had a similar experience at our last ultrasound; the tech pressed down very, very firmly, and the baby FOUGHT BACK like a champ. I remember actually vocalizing in surprise a couple of times at how strong she was, and thinking, "If she's this tough at 20 weeks, I am going to be in trouble by 35 or so!"

You sure did get a beautiful profile shot. That's going to be one to treasure.
