Week 12 Ultrasound: Twin B's a Photo Crasher

Mark came with me to see my new obstetrician last week because I had heard we would hear the babies' heartbeats for the first time. Well, that turned out to be false. Kaiser needs a new ultrasound machine because these pictures were grainier and harder to read than ones I have from three weeks ago when the babies were still the size of blueberries. That was too bad - especially since it was the first time Mark's been able to watch an ultrasound.

Here's Twin B. It's so blurry it reminds me of Bigfoot running by.

Here's Twin A (on the left) and Twin B. The doctor was trying to take a picture of Twin A, but Twin B kept inserting its head into the picture. Mark said Twin B was like the guy who can't help but stick his head into other people's photos. Woo! Look at me!

The last time Mark came with me to an appointment, it was a generic one about what happens the first trimester of pregnancy where I just filled out a lot of forms. Hopefully he'll get to experience a "good" appointment soon.


  1. Butterfly gave my Mom the Italian salute at my 12 week ultrasound (and was generally uncooperative in the whole showing the neck thing). No joke.

    She totally toed the line one week later when Steve was watching the 1st trimester screening ultrasound take two.

  2. I love the Bigfoot photo.

    Did you get the ultrasound done in the basement of Kaiser Oakland?

  3. Good guess but this ultrasound was taken in Kaiser Santa Clara.

    I'm noticing a common thread in crappy Ultrasounds...
