23 weeks, 3 days

Well, here are some "baby photos" for you. I have to say, they're a little disappointing. Apparently Baby Jenson wasn't cooperating and was facing the wrong way, so we couldn't get any of those cute profile shots or much of anything, really. Also, it was a student sonographer and I don't think he knew what he was doing. A full-fledged one was helping him and training him, but I think I'd rather place the blame on him and not the baby. The first one is the back of the head and you can see part of the spine too.

The second one is a foot.

They did give me one other one that they said was a face, but not only is it extremely skull-like and scary, I'm not even sure it is the face...I think they might've just seen two black spots and said "oh, these are eyes". It was a bad photo to begin with, but it got even worse when I scanned it - it turned out pretty blurry. So I'm not even going to post it. The good news is, Melissa, the sonographer who was helping the student, said I could stop by some other day when she's working and she'll get me in quick to try for a better photo. One of the perks of working at a hospital!

As I mentioned, we didn't want to find out the sex...but I think we might've, accidentally. Again I blame the student sonographer. We were all looking at the screen, and he was moving the transmitter-thingy around all haphazardly. He never told us to look away! We both think we might've seen...something. We should sue. Just kidding. But, we're definitely not experienced ultrasound-interpreters, so we could definitely be wrong.
Oh, they did say that everything looked normal. The heart rate was 145, which is good, and the baby weighs 1 pound! They also said my due date is probably closer to May 29, not the 22nd.

Here's also a new belly shot. Sweatpants are my friend. I tried
to wear maternity pants for the first time on Saturday, just to run some errands. I guess I'm not quite there yet, though, because they kept wanting to fall down.

Hi Lindsay -

Nice to meet you also! Thanks for writing on my blog! Congrats on your pregnancy...so exciting, huh? So you are not finding out the sex like we aren't - that's exciting! Although I see you might have an idea what the sex is...not too many people don't find out so it's nice to know we're not alone!

Nice to meet you :) Take care!
