First Ultrasound
January 11, 2005

The ultrasound procedure was much quicker than I had thought it would be, about 15 minutes start to finish. The purpose of this ultrasound was to get a better due date estimate. First we did a normal scan on my belly; that didn't show much, so we did a vaginal ultrasound, which is what these pictures are from. The baby was really kicking and stretching a lot. I still can't feel anything (it's only about 6 cm long right now), so I was surprised to see it moving around so much. The estimated due date from the ultrasound is July 22nd!

Our first glimpse of the baby! The placenta is on the bottom, but you can't see the umbilical cord.

This picture has a good view of the left leg. We could see fingers during the exam, but we didn't get a picture of them.
