Pictures

Here they are, pictures as promised.

The first one is the most clear one from Friday's ultrasound. The head is on the right side, and the white triangle is the nose. I think the ultrasound tech said the straight right line below that is the upper mandible, and the white area below that is the jaw. The left foot is on the far left side of the image, and the right foot is the light white blob above the short bright white line. I'm not sure what that white line is or what the bright white line running along the bottom is - maybe the spine?



This next photo is not the most attractive, so I can't quite believe I'm sharing it with you. But it is what it is. At least I don't have to show my face... :-)

And let me just say, not all of that bump is baby, not by a long shot. Even when I weigh 40 pounds less than I do now, with a BMI that is in the "Healthy" range (i.e. below 25), if I were to wear something form-fitting, I'd still have the kind of stomach that makes people look and think "Hmm, is she or isn't she?" About 90% of my body fat tends to congregate in my belly, something that no amount of sit-ups or cardio seems to be able to change.

From yesterday (11w1d):

Beautiful baby! Can you believe you finally get to post a belly pic? Very cool!

You look adorable! And, you are going to have the cutest BIG baby bump soon:-) I complained with my first pregnancy that I didn't show until probably 28 weeks...I just looked like I had a beer gut! Of course, I got payback for that this time around. So, you will show early and very nicely and it will be so much fun! The baby looks perfect! Its already adorable!

Adorable! As for your non-pregnant stomach, **I KNOW**! I have PCOS too. ;-)
