Pictures from Second Ultrasound

It's not letting me post these with the previous post, so here they are, separately. We finally scanned in the pictures from Ultrasound #2. I sharpened them up and such in Photoshop, and once again presented them unmarked and then with little labels so you can tell what you're looking at. Isn't he cute?? ;)

Second Ultrasound

This week we went in for a second ultrasound. I was about 24 and a half weeks (reached the point of viability, yey!). Everything looked good, even though we had a grossly inept ultrasound tech. She wouldn't record the pictures on the cd or dvd we were *told* to bring, took forever to get the measurements that the last tech did in a few minutes, and printed us a measly two pictures that are horribly out of focus. Oh well, at least we only have to wait 15 more weeks before we get to see him in person!

The reason we were there was to get a better view of the spine, and everything looks perfect in that department. According to the tech's measurements this time (of which I am not extremely confident) we are measuring about four days ahead of schedule. The baby weighed in at 1 pound 11 ounces and is a bit over a foot long! He's getting so big in there! He was head down, with his hands clasped together resting on his cheek, and his legs crossed Indian-style (and yet he still managed to kick a bunch!). Something fun to see was - he has shapely calves, he looks like a little runner! And a cute little button nose, it's so tiny and well-shaped. All in all, he's doing very well and is developing just as he should. We can't wait to see him face-to-face. :)

I'll post the two new sonogram once we get them scanned, but they really just look like blurs of white and grey, nothing exciting!

Today I went through our pile of baby things, and decided to catalog them to see what we have so far. I took pictures of everything, which are posted below. (Thanks to Mom, Melissa and Katie for their wonderful contributions to the 'stash'!)

I'm also going to post our two baby registries here. We mostly have larger items on there right now and will be adding more small essentials as we go. We aren't really registering for any clothes or furniture. Clothes, because I think people would want to pick them out on their own if they get them (and I know I'll be buying lots!). And furniture since we are going to be using our Pack 'n Play as a bassinet/crib, changing table, and play yard - so we don't need any of those things, plus we are in an apartment and don't have room for much else right now. Mostly, the registries are just lists for my reference so I can keep track of what we will need to buy! :)

Both our registries are online, but the Babies 'R Us list is also available at their stores.
