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.
I've already offered congratulations and good luck to easterbunny, so you get a 'Jolly well done'!

Great news for you both. Hurrah!
Dude, awesome! It's an Alien!

(Trust me, I'm a doctor).

When it comes out, will you let me feed it liquid oxygen and coal, go on o you mite?
Well done. If anyone's genes needed to be propagated, yours are pretty damned high on the list.

And generally "Hurrah!" for intellegent people having children instead of just 14 year old chavs. I am sure he/she will be fantastic and you will both make great parents. (see this is the value of waiting overnight for something quasi-intellegent to say - all I managed on Easterbunny's LJ was congratulations).
Congrats dude.

Whenever I see these I get reminded of that episode of Friends.

Joey: (About the sonogram) What are we supposed to be seeing here?
Chandler: I don't know. But I think it's about to attack the Enterprise.

Jokes aside, these things do make you grin ear to ear don't they? It's a BABY. It's YOUR BABY.

Did you get to hear the baby's heartbeat?
That's just great news. Congratulations to you both.

He's sort of baby shaped but why does he have a torch? Guess it's dark in there.
It's got to get in some good reading whilst it can. Once it's born, it'll be too busy crying and pooing and throwing up all over daddy to be relaxing with a nice book. 'Tis a hard life for a baby. :)
Wow! Big congratulations.

From observing friends who've had kids I consider myself something of an expert on children and their upbringing. Firstly - ensure they're instilled with a strong sense of responsibility for their parents. This may be your carer during your long senile dotage, so best bare that in mind.

Secondly, if it's a girl fit locks on her bedroom door from the ages of 10 through 25 and only let her out if supervised by an older crochety relative who believes sex is a sin against God.

Finally, if bothered by crying at night and bedwetting then try not drinking as much before bedtime. After all, you have to be a responsible parent now. A couple of valium will put it all in perspective.

March or there abouts. Or when Beth can't get into it any more. Whichever's soonest. :)
