Status Report - 192 Days to Go!

Hey! Look, it's my kid:

Pretty cute, eh? This was taken on Thursday morning, two weeks after the last ultrasound. In that two weeks, the baby has doubled in size. He/she (and I seriously cannot wait until I know the sex so I can refer to the baby as HE or SHE) is 6.6 cms from crown to rump. Go ahead, you know you want to, get a ruler.

This ultrasound was to check the Nuchal Translucency, an indicator of chromosomal anomalies like Down Syndrome and Trisomy 18. Any measurement under 3.0 mms is good, our baby's is 1.7 mms, so that's one more hurdle cleared. One week, three days left of the first trimester.
