Our Baby Has a Brain.

Today Rob and I had an appointment for my Nuchal Screening. They measure the space in the tissue of the back of the babie's neck to figure out if the baby might have Down's Syndrome or other chromosomal abnormalities. The baby wasn't in a good position so the tech had me lay on my side for 5 minutes hoping it would turn around (it did). They measured the space 3 times and said everything looks good. They do say the test is 80% accurate. It was really neat to see Baby Wagner since the last time we saw it (I feel so bad calling it an it!), it was only 7 weeks old. Now, it's 13 weeks and man does it look different.

The baby was moving all around, looks like it was doing summer-saults in my belly. We saw it's butt, belly, head, BRAIN!, fingers, profile and Rob saw it's eyes. The ultra sound technician measured me to be due a day before my due date so really, all is still on track. She said their estimate could be off by 5 days.

Here is the picture looking down on it's brain:

And my personal favorite, the sassy striking a pose shot:

Oh, yes, striking a pose, all right! ("Vogue" - can't you hear it?!) Just noticed you changed your "wall-paper" on your block. Were you tired of your flowers???

oh, geeze, I said "block" instead of "blog" - think I'd better go to bed!

Yes, I like the "strike a pose" one too.

I was trying to get fancy with the html code and ended up messing up the template so I had to revert to my original template. Oh well...

I can't even imagine how exciting this must be for you! Congratulations. I guess one day I'll know how it feels. No babies yet; just puppies. haha. I bet you can't wait to find out the sex!

Aw, baby Wagner! I can't wait to find out if "it" is a boy or a girl!
