Baby Stancil’s First Photo Shoot

Today, we finally were able to see our baby! It was really an amazing thing! Dustin swore he saw that it was a boy but I have no clue how! Ha! The heart rate went down from our 9 week appointment to 159 , still a strong beater! You could even see the fluttering of it on the screen! Doctor says baby looks great and the ultrasound tech even measured the baby and estimated our due date closer to March 6th or 7th! Guess we’ll be ready a little sooner just in case!

Here are the pictures I promised!

This one is a frontal view of baby’s face with the little arms up on each side of his/her face!

This is a great profile! I believe this is after he/she flipped all around!

Closer profile shot with maybe a little wave in there!

This is my favorite! Looks like we’ll have a thumb sucker on our hands! Right before this you could see baby opening and closing it’s mouth! It was so great to see our baby moving around!

I still haven’t felt anything but that’s pretty normal at this stage. Hopefully in a few weeks I’ll feel those little flips!

Note from Baby Daddy: I’ve decided to stop referring to the baby as him/he/her/she.. Instead, the non-sex-defined fetus will be assigned the alias ‘Zombie’. Why Zombie? Because Zombie’s are essentially a-sexual, whose sole purpose is consumption and survival without regard for what’s going on around them.


12 Weeks!

Today we embark into our 12 weeks, almost second trimester! It’s hard to believe that we’re a third of the way through this pregnancy! That just reminds me that we need to get started on the “Before Baby Comes To-Do List”!! This week is also very special because we’ve decided to share the baby news with everyone now! So if you are reading this and are one of the first to know, you no longer have to keep it a secret any more! Whooohooo!

Tomorrow we have our very first ultrasound! We’re so excited for it finally to be able to see our baby! I feel like I’ve waited since I took the first pregnancy test for this moment! I can’t wait to share the pictures to you all as soon as we get them!

At 12 weeks our baby is the size of a large plum or a lime!

Baby’s Size

This week marks the time when our baby reaches the size of a fig! Now I have no clue how big a fig is because of my pickiness towards food, but I’ve been told that it’s about 2 inches long. Another baby website says the baby is the size of a large plum and again I couldn’t point out a plum in a line up so I’ll just assume they’re around the same size. So there you have it! Also at this size, baby is almost fully developed! That’s just so crazy!! Apparently baby’s already kicking around and getting the hiccups but I can’t feel it quite yet, that’s still a few months away.
