Photographic Evidence of Pregnancy

It’s getting hard to not to be excited. There is now photographic evidence of the wee one.


The grey blob in the green oval is an ultrasound image of our fetus. Good thing I am not a ultrasound tech, because I would have presumed it to be a half-digested lima bean. Nonetheless, the REAL technician identified a heartbeat, purring along at 175 bpm. I think anxiety wise, Cletus the fetus might take after it’s father.

We were so excited we had some photos taken at a quaint little studio in the corner of the Mayfair Mall food court.


A good day was had by all. Fingers are still firmly crossed, and all good vibes are still appreciated.

We had an ultrasound this morning when we went to see a specialist. I saw the little feller’s heart beating. So tiny, so fragile, so fast and so undeniably present.

This is a big event – it means that the fetus is viable, and that things are going as well as they can. We haven’t been this far yet.

The specialist said that before we saw the heart beat we had a 60 – 70% chance of seeing through to a successful delivery. Seeing the heartbeat, however, has improved our odds to about 95%.

Those are good odds, and I am freakin’ giddy.
