Wavin’ babe

I don’t know if I should post warnings on every pregnancy-related post or what, so until I figure it out I’ll err on the side of caution and warn you that I’ll be talking about pregnancy and ultrasounds today. Feel free not to read if you don’t feel like it. Of course, that’s your right all the time. So, um, do what you need to do.

The perinatologist used the fancy ultrasound machine today. Setting aside the sheer wonder of an ultrasound during which I was fully clothed, the pleasure of the warmed goo, and the fact that this was the world’s fanciest machine, I’m left with the best part of all. One of the baby-blobs waved at us. Waved. And did a little squirmy thing.

Coolest. Thing. Ever.

  3. It is. It's the very coolest thing. First time I saw the waving, I simultaneously giggled and burst into tears.

    I'm so glad you get to experience this.

  7. My son waved at me during our 12 week ultrasound. It was the coolest damn thing in the world- made all the more special by the fact that it was the first ultrasound DH went to, plus it was our anniversary.

    Good to hear all is going well.
