Whilst Dee and Jules play videogames downstairs, I sit in a beanbag in my makerspace and contemplate the various hardware projects that I would like to complete over the next couple of years.
We had another ultrasound this week, a little check against heart defects (sonographer said it looked fine, but we haven’t had the final confirmation from the doctor yet — not worried). A nice little ultrasound centre in Berwick, and we found out the meaning of “4D scan” when she showed us his face in 3D … and then he moved! Opening and closing his mouth just like a real baby might (and he’s looking pretty baby-like now), it was amazing to behold. Technology is awesome! Science, you rock. They printed out a couple of 3D pics, with the digital copies on their way (can’t scan the thermal-prints) so you might’ve seen the blurry pic from Flickr:
For me, seeing him move was another “wow” moment, like hearing his heartbeat for the first time. In these pictures, he’s got his hands in front of his face so you can only kind of see half of him — but who do you think he looks like?
(The sonographer also showed us around his head — he’s already got hair! That might change who you think he looks like?)
