12 Week Ultrasound Pics

Here are the pictures from our 12 week ultrasound on Tuesday. The baby looks good and is measuring right on track. When the tech first found the baby on the screen, he** was kicking and moving like crazy. The tech even sounded a little surprised at how active he was. At one point, we watched the baby stretch out his whole thigh, leg, and foot all the way in one giant kick. It was so weird! I half expected the little guy to look like a gummy bear on the screen (even though I've been reading my books so I know what it should look like), but it actually looked like a human.

There's an actual human in there. Can you believe it? I'm still in awe. It was one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. I can't wait for our next ultrasound in a few weeks to see him again.

In the above picture, the baby's sort of lounging on his back with his head towards the left and a little hand up near his face. His legs are curled up, sort of like a rabbit and you can see his cute little feet there in the upper right portion.

In this picture I think he's sort of mid-kick. I think it's cute because you can see the profile of his cute little face. Does he look like me or Chris?

In other news, did you notice the name printed at the top of the ultrasound pictures? It says Spender, Annalisa. Fittingly ironic, don't you think?

**I keep calling the baby a "he" because I have a feeling it's a boy. Chris calls the baby a "she" because he has a feeling it's a girl. But we don't actually know for a few more weeks.
