My First Ultrasound

I had my first ultrasound yesterday, and we were so excited to finally be able to see Baby Wilhelm. Ammon was a little late arriving, so I had already seen the baby and heard the heartbeat when he got there. We did it over again so he could hear the heartbeat too! It's amazing how much it sounds like an alien spaceship. Before Ammon came, I think Baby was sleeping, because it wasn't moving around at all. Then, the ultrasound tech started jiggling my belly trying to get the baby to move so she could measure the fluid for the downs syndrome indicator. Baby wasn't being very cooperative, but did wake up and start kicking around. We couldn't believe how much Baby was moving for only being 5.9 cm! It flipped over onto it's stomach while we were watching on the screen! We are so excited to know that there is actually something moving around in there, and to see our little baby (actually looks more like an alien, but who's complaining at this point).
So, the ultrasound picture is of Baby laying on it's stomach, with the head on the left and feet on the right. You probably won't be as excited about it as we are, but I hope you enjoy!

One thing I learned from U//S is that personalities are not acquired- you are born with them.

First U/S with Caleb was 9 weeks, he was kicking up a storm. At 25 weeks, we found out the gender, and he was very stubborn to give us a good profile picture of his face... he ended up HEAD-BUTTING the wand!

Yeah. Personality.
