NEW PICTURES... like I promised. Sorry it didn't happen yesterday. We were busy entertaining a gimpy [livejournal.com profile] kevbonium and blowing him to high heaven in a wondrous game of Worms.

Moving swiftly along, I had a prenatal appointment yesterday. Dumb Dumb Head ([livejournal.com profile] squidgyfishlove) didn't take the day off for it yesterday, so I took his mother instead. Traffic sucked and it seemed like we were there forever, but I guess it worked out alright in the end.
I had two ultrasounds and got to actually see the Wiggle Worm wiggle! It waved to us and did the wiggle dance. That was pretty cool. It is definitely filling up its available space now. No wonder I'm starting to fill up and stretch. (And, of course, it's all expansion from here out.)
Unfortunately, the young one was fairly uncooperative and refused to roll over onto its side and give us a nice profile shot. This was unfortunate for two reasons: 1) I was really hoping to get to see a nose yesterday- that would, to me, really make it look like a little person; 2) they were planning to do a test by measuring the neck but cannot do it unless the baby is in profile. This resulted in asking me to tip and then lay down again, and in the tech going push-push-push with her hand to try to and get the baby to turn. While she is doing this, I am watching the baby bounce around a little bit in the ultrasound. I found this mildly disconcerting, though the baby seemed just fine. I guess that shows just how well protected it is in there. I wonder if it can react to those things yet... and if so, it must be thinking, "what the hell are you doing, mum?!"
Yes, it knows how to curse already. If you look at the second picture, it obviously the spawn of the devil, just as you all predicted. I think it's going to make a fabulous little head-banger. Goth baby. Fwar. (And, we cannot, of course, overlook the Grunge and Metal influences provided by both parents.)

Other point of interest: The doctor has said to go with our original due date, which pleases me. Our official due date is 9 October, 2007. My mum got a little orange onesie with ghosts on it in honour of it being a Halloween Baby. One thing I have to say... at least the birthday parties will rock, and no one will bat an eye at me. (Though I'm very boring compared to past years... makes me want to run in and load up on eye liner.)

So here you go... the devil spawn:
These, are frontal views. You are seeing (starting at the left) the skull, torso area, and it's arms up in the air by its head. Waiving or head banging, it's definitely active. The legs are tucked in there somewhere. I was able to see them from a different view. All appendages are accounted for. Now it's down to digits.

It was sort of cute when it wiggled... it's mostly scary from that angle. But at least it has bones and brains!

You can see the brains!! :-)) Now no-one can call your baby brainless!

At my 22 week scan they measured bits of the brain. Very, very weird. In theory unless something nasty ever happens to her in her life, that's the only time anyone will look at her brains! The same applies to your baby too, obviously! :-)

Yeah, they did point out the developing brain at one point during the scan but they didn't make an image at that point.

Very sweet!!!!
