Mindy’s on the way!

Saturday, June 14th, 2008

Coming next month, Simon’s little sister Mindy will be arriving! Here’s a little preview:

Oh, and Mindy’s not going to be her real name, we just call her that on the inside. The real name will arrive at the same time that she does.

3D ultrasound

Tuesday, October 17th, 2006

We decided to do the 3d ultrasound thing. First they start off with an old-fashioned 2d to figure out where things are.

And then 3d, wow! That’s a pretty impressive photo. Baby’s resting against the placenta and uterus wall on the left side, I guess it makes a good pillow.

Smile for the camera!

And a profile shot.

Yet another angle. Time to start making guesses about who Mork looks like.

They also filmed a short movie. You can see baby move around a little and yawn. If you have a slow connection, this one is a bit large, at 49 Megs.

Two months later…

Monday, August 14th, 2006

Two months since the last ultrasounds, and Mork’s been busy growing. It can be hard to figure some of these out, so I’ll try to label them.

Profile Head on the lower left, looking up. Body on the lower right.

ProfileSame as previous, but a little better.

ArmHis arm is in the middle, pointing up, with hand and fingers visible. A little of the head is visible on the left, and belly on the right.

FootHard to make this one out, but there’s a foot in the middle of the dark area.

LegOne leg goes across the bottom, foot in the bottom center, knee in the right corner. The other foot is also visible just above.

What a difference the equipment makes

This set was taken only 2 days later, but with MUCH nicer ultrasound equipment. You can make out arms and legs in there.

Still growing

Saturday, June 3rd, 2006

The little marks on there are measuring little Mork’s growth, 25 mm today.

Another ultrasound

Not a very high quality picture, but you can see something in there.

Our first set of ultrasounds.

Not much to see here, but I guess the doctors could make something out.
