I had an u/s last week, because of my history of Weight-Loss Surgery, to check on baby's growth. Baby looks great, and is measuring right on for my dates. I actually don't have to go back because the date has been the same for the last 3 u/s (and now I breathe a sigh of relief, because I hate getting all that ultrasound).

Anyway, doc gave me a pic of the "face." I've had many u/s over the course of four pregnancies, so I can usually discern what I'm looking at, but this thing is insane. I do not see a face. I'm sure the baby HAS a face, but I can't tell anything from this pic -- can you tell?

LOL What is that?! Why would they send that home with you?! Possibly it's a profile of the face.

I know, right?

My former midwife claims she sees eye sockets in the lower half of the pic, at about 11 o'clock and 4 o'clock, but no mouth, and maybe hands up by the "face"?

Sometimes I wonder if they make up some of that stuff! That looks nothing like a face.

Our last ultrasound sent up home with terrible pics too.

I see it. The bottom is towards the upper right and you can see one eye, the bridge of the nose, and the forehead.

I can see a face too, but that isn't a very good shot.

I thought it looked like one of those inkblot tests but my six-year-old was breezing by and was all "Aw! Hi Baby!"
