Our baby on the other hand is literally practicing this...even as a small fetus. Just check out the picture below... Yes that is our baby, trying to put it's foot into it;s mouth! How funny is that? I can't blame the baby, as it must get pretty bored in there. It has to find some way to entertain itself for nine months!
So yes...this week we had the ultrasound...and no...we did not find out the gender. We did however get our first look at the face and other important body parts of Baby Menor! According to the doctor everything is on track and looks good. Baby is quite curled up in there right now...which explains why it's foot is so close to it's head. This definitely does not look like a position I would want to be in, but the baby obviously does not mind. Here are a few other pictures. Don't worry if you are not exactly sure what you are looking at. We were a little unsure at first also. But I will try to explain...
This is a straight-on view of the baby's face. It has one of it's hands in front of it's face. When Todd saw this on the screen he immediately said..."That is my nose!" So we do know one thing about the baby...that is has it's father's nose. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
This is a profile view of the baby. It is trying to put it's hand up to it's mouth, working on the whole sucking of the thumb thing.
So as far as we can tell Baby Menor has all of the necessary body parts and organs! What a relief! It was truly a special experience for Todd and I to be able to see our baby for the first time. It is hard to believe that in a little over three months the person that you see in the above pictures will be here! So what do you think...boy or girl? Everyone seems to have their own opinion on what they think we having. I on the other hand have no stinkin' idea! The only thing I do know for sure..is that in about 12-14 weeks we are going to have a baby and life as we know it will change forever! But in a good way!
Not much else to report at this time. I am in my 24 week and growing daily! My current nickname from Todd is "Large and In Charge!" Here is a picture of the ever growing belly...
I am feeling and doing great...life is good!
