12 weeks ~ a little baby emerging!

Today was my 12 week check up. I was measuring 12 weeks 1 day but I am sticking with my original due date of Oct. 9th since I suspect it will change with each visit. The baby was screened for downs syndrome ect. and I had a few genetic tests to screen for risk for Down's, Cystic Fibrosis, ect. The heart was still beating nice and strong, about 155 beats/minute. Baby is now measuring 10.5 cm and was very active. Baby kept covering his face with his hands (I'm only saying "he" out of wishful thinking, we have no idea if it's a boy or a girl yet). It was very cute to watch.

This is my favorite picture from the ultrasound today. You can see the face, little tummy and legs. Looks like baby has made him/herself comfortable.

The ultrasound tech was really nice and gave me several shots. Here is a nice close up of the face and the ear. Baby is waving at us!

Here are a couple more good profile shots:
