The Mummy's Womb

Eileen and I are super damn proud to announce we’re gonna be parents!

The baby is almost 12 weeks old, which puts it at the start of it’s second trimester. Eileen got photos and saw the baby wave, here it is below

That’s his head on the left, feet on the right,and that light blob near his head is his (or her) hand. We don’t know the baby’s gender yet,because they don’t grow any until closer to the fifth month. I tend to call it a him because I don’t like calling it an IT. It’s about doubled in size in the last month,going from being gummy bear sized to being fun-sized snickers size.

If we could get a real photo instead of this batman style sonar image, he would look like this

The baby is healthy with a strong heart and growing at the right rate. I missed the last picture session because Eileen thought it was going to be just a checkup with no paparazzi, but I was at the first one 4 weeks ago. You can’t tell in the photo, but during the live ultrasound you could see it’s heart beating as a pulse of light, E.T. style. You could also hear the heart going wooshwooshwoosh. Seeing that and hearing that was probably the most amazing thing I’ve seen in my life.
