March 6 Ultrasound

March 6th, 2008

Today, Cris and I went for our third ultrasound. On this visit we were in and out of the doctor’s office in about ten minutes. We met with Beth, the ultrasound technician and she ran the ultrasound and took measurements from the crown to the rump and of the nuchal lucency (don’t ask me what that is…) She said the length was perfect for 12 weeks, 0 days, and that the nuchal lucency was perfect!

Most importantly, this was the first time that Cris and I could really see the baby as a baby. We could see the profile of the baby with the arms and legs moving all over the place. In the pictures, the baby is lying on it’s back with its head on the right hand side of the picture. Some of the pictures you can make out the arms and legs, but they are a bit hard to pick out if you don’t know what you are looking at.

Picture: 1) The baby. 2) Blobby baby with a leg showing in the upper left. 3) Most of the uterus, about to zoom in on the baby. 4) I think you can see the face the best in picture 4. 5) I believe that is a hand floating just above the baby.

Well, there you have it. We were pretty excited. We video taped the show and I’ll try to put that up on the web so you can see the baby moving around. It makes a lot more sense when the legs and arms are moving about!
