Yep, I can already tell that's one good- ookin' kid! I had my first doctor's appt today...I always hate the first one! Since I am already 12 weeks along, the doctor thought it might be possible to hear the heartbeat so we gave it a shot. Sadly, we couldn't. Then the doc suggested an ultrasound! Which at first I was totally excited about, but then I started getting worried that he wanted to do an ultrasound because he couldn't get the heartbeat. On the one hand he said that the heartbeat can't always be heard at 12 weeks, and they always want to do an ultrasound in the first trimester...but, nonetheless, I spent the next 20 min worrying. As it turned out, everything was great! We got to see the baby flopping around and dancing, and we even got to see the heart beating! The photo above is a nice profile shot (just in case you couldn't tell), it's so amazing that at only 12 weeks it's little facial features are so defined! Speaking of facial features, the next two pictures:
These ones are a bit smaller (just how they were scanned, you can click the link to see them bigger if you want), but the first one is a face shot. You can see the baby's eyes and nose! Really, it make the baby look like and alien, but it's cool. The second is another shot from the front where you can see the baby's big belly and short little legs =) Sadly we still have to wait another 8 weeks to find out if it's a boy or a girl!
