Given that I've been having some complications with my pregnancy, my GP chose to err on the side of caution and referred me to an ob/gyn this week..... and that's where my husband and I got to see our first glimpse of this baby.
I was lucky enough to hear the heartbeat earlier this month, but now we were also given an advanced viewing of him/her/it, who was happily trampolining off my uterine wall. I could have watched it for hours if only the doctor would have allowed it.
But there were two things that really stood out to us:
1. He/she/it has a freakishly large head.
2. He/she/it has a spine that is oddly reptilian-like in appearance.
And all of this prompted my husband to dub the semi-ultrasound as "The Little Alien Movie".
I'm sure he meant for it to be endearing, I swear!
