Sorry to those who voted that Baby Bean 2 was really Beans 2 AND 3. Baby Bean 2 is decidedly all by his or her lonesome. Sadly, the ultrasound prints we got will not translate well to the blog so I am attaching pictures of a baby at 7 weeks (one week earlier than our baby) of hands and feet. All systems appear to be a go, and the baby is due June 7 instead of June 13 as I originally thought so I’m 8 weeks pregnant not 7 weeks. The heart rate was 159, so I think it’s a girl, but I could be wrong.
At 8 weeks, the baby has elbows and knees, fingers, toes, teeth, tongue, and lots of other stuff. The baby is a little more than half an inch long from head to rump and weighs 1 gram.
While we were in the waiting room, I noticed a girl sitting opposite us who was reading “He’s Just Not That Into You.” The cover of the book was white with lime green and hot pink accents. Presumably in an effort to color coordinate with her reading materials, the girl was sporting a bright green sweater, shiny black pants, and hot pink patent leather pointy-toed stilettos. Yeah, I know, but I’m not making that up. Worse, the shoes were a little too small, so you could see the lines of her toes coming out – it’s what we in the business call “pump cleavage” and it’s not attractive. Wow. It was really unfortunate because the girl was not un-cute, I was just not that into her fashion don’ts.
But enough fashion policing. I am feeling fairly stable right now so I’m off to eat dinner!
