Sprout

November 19, 2007

Finally, finally, some evidence – for my own eyes – that this pregnancy is more than just nausea and vomiting and unremitting fatigue. Proof that there’s a there in there, and that there is occupied:


That’s Super Sprout, and from the way that he or she is kicking my ass, Sprout is going to have a lot in common with the Wonderbaby.

    beautiful.

    daysgoby November 19, 2007 at 12:01 pm

    Amazing how a picture – a picture! – can almost make all the sandy-eyelids-syndrome and gagging worth it, huh?

    WonderSprout is beautiful. Congratualtions, Catherine.

    Hannah November 19, 2007 at 12:05 pm

    That’s an incredibly clear picture… hope mine comes out so well. Cutie.

    b*babbler November 19, 2007 at 12:07 pm

    What a perfect picture!

    Congratulations!

    flutter November 19, 2007 at 12:21 pm

    OK I don’t know what’s up with my hormones but this made me burst into tears. *whew*

    Congrats, and it is so cool to see Super Sprout!

    Awesome Mom November 19, 2007 at 12:22 pm

    That is a great first picture of the little one! You have the cutest little gray alien baby I have seen in a long while.

    Noe November 19, 2007 at 1:05 pm

    it made me cry!!!

    Don Mills Diva November 19, 2007 at 1:05 pm

    Congratulations! No matter how many of those ultrasound pictures I see, I never cease to marvel over them. It’s such a miracle.

    Beck November 19, 2007 at 1:05 pm

    Oh! A baby!

    NotSoSage November 19, 2007 at 1:25 pm

    It’s funny how you can convince yourself that maybe, somehow, you’re just putting yourself through this for nothing…until finally, s/he is there. REAL!

    Hiya, Sprout!

    motherbumper November 19, 2007 at 1:27 pm

    Yah! It’s a baby!

    Assertagirl November 19, 2007 at 1:31 pm

    Super Sprout is super cute.

    Mommato2 November 19, 2007 at 1:33 pm

    Ohhhh…what a great picture…love those ultrasound shots….makes it all seem so very real. Hope the nausea leaves you soon.

    Janet November 19, 2007 at 2:01 pm

    Gorgeous. I treasure those blurry little pictures from the inside.

    slouching mom November 19, 2007 at 2:16 pm

    hello, super sprout!

    Mimi November 19, 2007 at 2:30 pm

    Hey there kiddo! Good looking, and verrrrry busy — a wonder sibling indeed.

    FishyGirl November 19, 2007 at 2:45 pm

    Well, Howdy, Little WonderSprout!

    I love those US shots – our firstborn was named based on her profile on US, and darn if she didn’t look exactly like we thought she would.

    something blue November 19, 2007 at 3:02 pm

    That first photo is the absolutely gorgeous. You’ve got yourself another spirited beauty!

    sweetney November 19, 2007 at 3:11 pm

    wow, that’s an amazing profile… grow baby, grow!

    mothergoosemouse November 19, 2007 at 3:12 pm

    I can’t even come up with a smart-alecky comment.

    So happy for you guys. xo

    mamatulip November 19, 2007 at 3:23 pm

    I LOVE those sneak peek ultra sound pics. I still have both J and O’s on the fridge.

    Grow, baby! Grow!

    kittenpie November 19, 2007 at 3:39 pm

    Hey… there!
    Be nice to yo’ mama.
    But nice to seeing you looking good.

    (Isn’t it amazing how it makes it so much less abstract?)

    The Hotfessional November 19, 2007 at 3:41 pm

    Hey there Sprout. Take it easy on Mommy, eh? At least until you’re ready to hit the outside!

    Lawyer Mama November 19, 2007 at 3:51 pm

    That is one fine looking Sprout. Ultrasounds photos always amaze me.

    Motherhood Uncensored November 19, 2007 at 4:07 pm

    What? I thought you were just making all this up.

    HEH.

    Sprout looks gorgeous.

    Cynthia Samuels November 19, 2007 at 4:10 pm

    Oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy! I forgot how amazing it is to see this – feel the cold goopy stuff on your belly and watch the wand thingy elicit this image (clearly of a loving, talented, graceful child.) I send you love and a bit of envy…

    OH and by the way the last time I read a Zen Koan it was in NINE STORIES or FRANNY AND ZOOEY — can’t remember which — and I was almost as young as Wonderbaby (hyperbole but still – what fun to think about them again…)

    ali November 19, 2007 at 4:45 pm

    looks just like you. heh.
    :)

    Laural Dawn November 19, 2007 at 4:48 pm

    How wonderful!
    It’s so amazing to see the ultrasound pictures :) My pictures (though precious) aren’t that life like.I keep holding them upside down when I show people.

    Liz November 19, 2007 at 4:58 pm

    beautiful!

    Naomi (Urban Mummy) November 19, 2007 at 6:05 pm

    Ultrasounds are just one of the most amazing things ever. A baby! Yay!

    Karen November 19, 2007 at 6:08 pm

    hey super sprout! Listen, lovey, go easy on your mama, you have lots of years left to kick her ass -take your time!

    BOSSY November 19, 2007 at 7:19 pm

    The baby has your profile!

    Heather November 19, 2007 at 8:29 pm

    Hooray for proof!

    I had an OB appointment today too. Our munchkin was waving at us…

    Such fun to see the little person inside.

    Mrs. Chicky November 19, 2007 at 9:15 pm

    So you’re the one who has been making your Mama puke so much. He/She is lucky he/she is such a cute fetus.

    Julie Pippert November 19, 2007 at 9:28 pm

    How beautifully amazing. Congrats!!

    Do we know any details yet? That we will share? Since this is a plural event? Or maybe you are royalty. ;0)

    Using My Words

    Phoenix November 19, 2007 at 9:53 pm

    I kinda like that, Super Sprout. It has a nice ring too it. Super Sprout is gorgeous.

    Mac and Cheese November 19, 2007 at 9:56 pm

    Great posture too!

    Kelly November 19, 2007 at 10:25 pm

    How I love the grainy beauty of an ultrasound picture. Looks as though the sprout is giving a big thumbs up.

    Her Bad Mother November 19, 2007 at 11:02 pm

    Julie – still too early for any info other than ‘baby looks good.’ No pee-pees or va-jay-jays spotted, in other words ;)

    But yes, I am royalty. ;) And?

    Anonymous November 19, 2007 at 11:08 pm

    looks like a peanuts cartoon character

    painted maypole November 20, 2007 at 1:03 am

    “super sprout” love it.

    congrats again

    kgirl November 20, 2007 at 3:02 am

    awesome! it certainly helps to see, dunnit? and sprout is a great handle.

    JaniceNW November 20, 2007 at 3:03 am

    Great reminder you’re not just puking pointlessly. Love the US picture!!!

    nomotherearth November 20, 2007 at 3:03 am

    Wow, now how did you post this?? I wanted to show everyone my Skeletor ultrasound but couldn’t figure out how to do it. I’m slow.

    Congrats. Aren’t ultrasounds the coolest thing? I like visible proof – makes it all seem that much more real.

    Jenifer November 20, 2007 at 8:38 am

    Congratulations…it is always wonderful to see a brand new baby.
