This is the head looking at you and his/her arm on top.
The tech said the baby is sticking out his/her tongue here:
And here s/he is sucking her thumb! (it was amazing to see on the screen):
We had our ultrasound yesterday and it was so great! It seemed like the tech had to look for a long time, so we really got a good look at the baby. S/he is VERY active - it took the tech forever to get some of the views she needed b/c the baby kept flipping around. And get this - we couldn't have found out the sex even if we wanted to. The tech said she couldn't get a good look. I guess that really worked out for us! And size-wise, everything looks really good. The baby actually measured a little bit ahead of schedule. My doctor said she is still going to order another u/s for 6 weeks from now, just to monitor the size, but she thought everything was progressing nicely. And I gained a TON of weight! (This is a good thing b/c I had yet to gain any from my already low weight after being sick this summer). I am feeling really good and things seem to be great. Yeah!
Ed also had a few funny comments to make during the appts. The doc was talking about a woman who had just been in and spent the whole time crying b/c she was having a third boy. She kept saying "and I'll never get to help pick out a prom dress." So Ed said, "well, you never know, he could go in drag - it is San Francisco after all!" Ha, ha.
On a Samuel note, I think he must be going through a growth spurt b/c he is sleeping like a madman. He is going 13+ hours at night and taking really long naps. Ed is waking him up in the mornings b/c it gets so late. Let him sleep or no? I'm torn!
