I realise it has been quite some time since I’ve last written anything for my WordPress online journal. Jeremy has been begging me to do so for quite some time, but I just haven’t been bothered to use the scanner to share some pictures with the world.
However, I realised I couldn’t just keep putting off telling the world/Internet that I am, in fact, pregnant. It happened about a week into Jeremy’s and my honeymoon, releasing the spawn in Singapore, with conception likely taking place somewhere in Phuket. One thing I plan on telling baby in the future that one of the very first things it did with us after conception was getting to ride atop an elephant.
So I’m now about 14 weeks into the pregnancy, and I’ve had two ultrasounds. The first one being bulk-billed to Medicare, and therefore free for us, but the second one lending no Medicare rebate at all. Had I known, perhaps I wouldn’t have bothered with the first trimester screening. After all, I didn’t expect to be carrying a baby with Down’s Syndrome. And given that I haven’t heard back from my obstetrician, I must be in the “low risk” category, which is exactly what I expected.
This is baby at 8 weeks and 6 days. As you can see, the person taking the ultrasound was nice enough to label all the bits.
This is baby at 12 weeks and 3 days, full body, with its head on the left and feet on the right.
This one was labelled as baby’s face, so I’m just going to repeat that it’s baby’s face.
This is another one of baby’s body. It’s where baby was measured at 65.22mm from head to rump, and I guess the writing in the bottom is indicative that this height is typical of a baby of 13 weeks, and therefore baby is a little tall for its age.
This is a 3D interpretation of baby at 12 weeks and 3 days.
