Ultrasound Pic

I had my first appointment and ultrasound on Monday. I absolutely love our doctor! He had actually heard of Elk Grove and knew we were the Thundering Herd. And at some point I put my hands to my head and did our antlers. Crazy! (You know what I'm talking about, if you're from there.)
The ultrasound was so great! It was such a relief to see the baby and see it move (a lot). It's great to know that it's alive and doing well. It measured 2.5".
During the ultrasound, I kept saying, "This is so weird.....that's so trippy!", and Tyler just kept laughing at me. But it's really weird to see it moving on the screen and know that that little thing is moving inside of you at the same time. Just the idea that there's actually a baby in me is weird.

I keep calling the baby It, but Tyler's come to name the baby Festus (and has told me it's name is not It) until we find out if it's a boy or a girl.
I tried taking pictures of me and my growing belly, by myself, but they didn't turn out so well. I'll probably have Tyler help me tonight.

Here's our ultrasound at 13 weeks. The head is on the left with the belly and feet poking up on the right. Yes, it looks like our kid has penguin feet, but from another angle we were able to see that it isn't so. We actually saw it crossing it's ankles...pretty cute... like it was just lounging inside.


  1. aww, cute little fetus. can't wait to hear what you guys are having!

  2. I loved having's pretty crazy that this tiny little thing already resembles a baby when it is just 2 inches long! AMAZING1!

    Can't wait to see your darling belly!

  3. How fun! Just wait till you can see the baby moving through your skin, now that is weird. I remember having the same feelings you have when I saw my baby. It's so crazy!

  4. what an exciting time...we are so happy for you :)

  5. That is such a cute picture! Congratulations again you guys!

  6. oh sooo cute! i remember that first ultrasound was such a actually get to see that there was a baby inside! i am so glad everything is going great and your baby is SO cute!

  7. Emily- What a cute little peanut! It's fun to see this because you and I are due the same week, so my babies probably look pretty similar to that right now. Also, to answer your question on my blog, I go to Valley OBGYN. It's a really busy place with about 5 doctors. Your doctor sounds great. I should switch doctors but I'm too lazy because this place already has all of my history on file since they delivered Hannah.


It's the cool thing to do.
