Ultrasound #2, 12 weeks 3 days

Ultrasound is such amazing technology. Yesterday Greg and I watched in amazement as our child kicked and stretched and flipped over inside my womb! He or she was very busy in there. Why don't they invent an affordable ultrasound for home use? I'd much rather watch my child all night than any television show!

Seeing the baby move really brings the pregnancy into focus. I'm beginning to realize that there really is a baby in there and that at some point it's going to come out! Wow. Maybe I shouldn't get that far ahead of myself. Or maybe I should actually begin to get serious. I have had almost no interest in looking at baby things yet, though I need practically everything. Without knowing the gender, it's hard to pick anything. Or maybe that's just my excuse. In fact, it's probably just an excuse. The reality is that I'm going through a gigantic ambivalence phase. I'm finding that for the first time in my life, I just don't really care about much. Well, that's not quite it. It's more like this: I care, but can't possibly be motivated to do anything about it. I'm chalking it up to pregnancy fatigue and crazy brain and hoping it goes away soon. If not, I'll have to hire someone to be me for a while because our bathroom REALLY needs to be cleaned!

And apparently I ramble.

Without further ado (or crazy pregnancy brain antics), I present the pictures from our ultrasound yesterday.

Our baby at 12 weeks 3 days. In the last two pictures the baby has their back to us. Notice the kick in photo number 2.
