12 weeks!

Today was my 12 week visit with my OB.  They said he had student observers and asked if they could come in, which didn't bother me a bit.  We were like sardines in that treatment room for my second ultrasound.  It was almost commical how one after another came in to introduce themselves and shake hands.  I was well prepared for the extra observers....but not so prepared for the second vaginal ultrasound.  Had no idea that was coming.  I'm afraid Maggie may have mislead me when I asked what went on at the 12 week visit.  I am just thrilled I had on clean underpants :)  I do wish I had known because I didn't have Zac with me.  Let me just start by saying holy differentiation, my baby is so much bigger now!  See for yourselves!

Week 8 ultrasound

Week 12 ultrasound

Is that not unbelievable?!  I could see baby's profile a bit at 8 weeks and little buds, but what a difference 4 weeks makes!  I was thrilled to see baby's spine and heart beat and buddha belly.  I have LOTS of pictures from this ultrasound (thank you Dr. M, I appreciate them so much) and was pumped to sit down and show them all to Zac.  I am really sad he missed it, he would have loved it.  Baby kept dancin around, flingin his arms and rolling.  Dr. M measured baby's heart rate, 158 for those of you that know what the heart rate stuff is supposed to mean.  

For some unknown reason I think baby is a boy.  Maybe it is because Zac really wants a boy and boy is in my head now.  Maybe it is because my sisters insist that my baby is big, bigger than their babies ever were and I assume if so, baby is a big boy.  I don't know, after seeing the 4 week difference, Maggie is probably right,  my baby is a beast :) 


  1. Your baby is precious! Isn't it funny that you can look at that little cashew (that's what I called Vada) and say that he or she is already cute?!

  2. Yeah for your little beast! I can't believe the difference in just 4 weeks! I love Dr. M too he's the BEST!

  3. Wow! After three kidnicks of my own, I still find this utterly amazing! Continued Blessings.
