First Sonogram Picture


Here's one of the first images we got of our 'little geek'  taken at 11 weeks . Yesterday I started my 15th week and from what I read the baby is the size of a naval orange by now! Also, the legs are now longer than the arms and all four limbs have functional joints. They say the fetus is squirming and wiggling like crazy down in the womb, but I haven't felt anything yet.

Another interesting fact about the baby is that at this point even if the eyelids are still completely shut, he/she can sense light. If I shine a flashlight at my tummy, the little geek would be more likely to move away from the beam. We might just have to try that and see if I can feel any movement than.

My next doctor's appointment is in a week. We will get to hear the heart beat.  All is going well so far, my belly is finally starting to show a little bump. That means I have to start unbuttoning my regular pants...  Oh boy, fun times to come!
