Baby's First Pictures

Today was a fun day: I had my first ultrasound! It was so neat to get to see the baby for the first time. And while I knew I was pregnant before, this really made it real.
I did get one surprise: my due date is apparently May 10, not May 16 like I had originally thought. So that puts me at 14 weeks 2 days, not 13 weeks 3 days. I know, that isn't a big change. But it is nice to know that I am in the second trimester now. I think I even tried to convince myself that since the 2nd trimester typically means the end of "morning sickness", that since I am now there I should be feeling normal again (even though I still felt gross as of last night). Well, it didn't so much work - I am still feeling it. (But it really isn't that bad, and it is nice to know it should be ending pretty soon.) Anyways, here's the pictures! We're so excited!

This one just shows the back of the baby; it's head is on the right.

Here's a profile shot.

This one shows the baby's face, looking between it's legs (I think!). So you can see the face on the right and it's bottom on the left. I asked the technician if she could make a guess as to the sex of the baby, and she said it's way too early for that. But I did notice that there doesn't appear to be anything between it's legs...

However, this is the same shot as above. Now is it just me, or is there a little something sticking out between the legs? I know, it very well could be the umbilical cord or something else... but it's fun to guess :)

This is probably the clearest shot of them all; it is another profile. But you can make out the eyes, nose, and mouth, and it has it's hand up by it's face.
