Ultrasound - 24 wks 2 days

Little Hittle says "hello" again! We are 24 weeks 2 days along today and we had a routine doctor's appointment where we were able to check in on Little Hittle via ultrasound. The baby's doing great! S/he is positioned with his/her head down, and its little feet are kicking near my belly button. Little Hittle's heart rate was 150 bpm and s/he weighed in at a healthy 1 lb. 9 oz., which is right on target for this stage of gestation. With that weight and a length somewhere around a foot long, Little Hittle roughly resembles an ear of corn!

The doctor pointed out the baby's head, stomach, hands, arms, legs, feet, etc. We actually could see a toenail on one of Little Hittle's big toes and we also saw a lens moving within one of Little Hittle's eyes (which are opening and closing now)! It's so amazing. Here's a cute picture of our munchkin in profile, with a hand on his/her forehead. Brian joked that it looked as if the baby had a headache (something we both suffer from and hope our little one doesn't inherit from either of us)!
