Ultrasound 2

So, it seems easterbunny has one of these growing inside of her. We've sort of known about it for a while but we actually got some pictures today, having popped to the local hospital.

B has more to say since, y'know, the kid is growing inside of her, but I'm grinning from ear to ear right now.

You see these strange blurry photos with the seashell shaped picture captured from the ultrasound all the time but the stills don't really do it justice. Seeing limbs move, the heart beat. It became real today.

That's not a microphone, is it? Or are you having a rock star baby?

Big huge congrats, anyway, I'm delighted for you both.
I'm lead to believe that's its hand and forearm, but it does look like it's about to bang out some tunes. :)
Apparently it costs £160,000 these days, to raise a child to the age of 18.

Hearty congratulations though, Gwil and I will need our chimneys sweeping in a couple of years, if you want to recoup any of that 160K before they get too big to fit :)
FRom ex-co-worker fathers, I relay the handy advice "sleep as much as you can in the next six months, because for the 12 months following the birth, you're not going to get more than fifteen minutes of uninterrupted sleep".

Congratulations on your upcoming career as "father", btw.
May I offer you personally as father-to-be a hearty woo! and yay! and all the very best.

I think I know what you mean about the moving experience with the ultrasound. May you have a long sequence of events to make you grin from ear to ear. (And if your little one's anything like as wonderful as my **FIXME, that's pretty likely.)
I believe it's traditional to say to people "Congratulations!" at this point. ;)
If you turn your head to the left it looks like he/she/it is sucking its thumb. Although if you turn your head to the right he/she/it looks like an angry spaniel.

Many congratulations to you both!
Wow! Congratulations!!!

...and lots of good luck too (you'll need it ;)
and congratulations from us to you as well. (almost as many congratulations as were offered to Beth moments earlier)

Fantastic news mate.
Wow - congrats to you both! Of course, I'm not entirely sure which end is the head...
