So it looks like an alien for now…

We got to see our child for the first time today, and hear his/her heartbeat!

Baby's heartbeat
Baby's heartbeat

Good News:

  • Good heartrate: smack dab in the middle of normal
  • Right on track for size
  • There’s only one (phew)
  • Everything’s (and everyone) is in the right place and orientation

Bad News:

  • Nothing really.

Other News:

  • Everything’s too microscopic to tell boy/girl yet. (The doc gave us a picture of what is there so far so we could hypothesize, however we are not the kind of people that would put a picture like that of our child on the internet.)
  • It looks…well…um…kind of otherworldly right now.
They get cuter as they get bigger I hear.

  1. I am sure this alien will shape up before Independence Day, but for me this is out of this world. Isn’t it wonderful. It really doesn’t matter if it is a girl or a boy. I just want to love it. Congratulations you two.

  2. Too cool, we are so excited! Next Thanksgiving, your birthday, Noel’s birthday, your graduation, Christmas, New Year, Valentine’s Day, Saint Patrick’s Day, April Fool’s Day, Easter, Earth Day, Cinco de Mayo, Noel’s graduation, Mother’s Day, Annie’s graduation, Memorial Day, Baby Day! Count down……
