Looking like a real, little baby

These last 3 pictures were taken at our fourth ultrasound and final visit with our first doctor.? Now you can see the arms and legs on the picture, and it was really moving this time!? We were able to bring in our video camera to this session, so that was fun to capture the movement in a moving picture.? The baby is now 42.7 mm (a little less than 2 inches), and I am 11.1 weeks along.? The first picture shows the baby's profile.? The second shows the baby's head (to the right), arms, legs, and belly, and the third shows the same thing but a little further out.? This is the last we will have of ultrasound pictures until I'm around 20 weeks along, but I'm really grateful to have so many already!

Beau made this to put up on the fridge and at work:

Third Ultrasound

Now you can see the whole baby, and the yolk sac is almost gone.? The baby is still only just 21.3mm (about an inch) at this point, and I am 8.6 weeks along.? This time we were able to see the baby move!? It kicked its legs and moved its arms.? It looks pretty active in there - I can only imagine what it's going to be like when I can actually feel it!
