Beauty Is In The Eye Of The Pregnant Beholder

January 12, 2008

You know how it goes. You have a prenatal appointment, they do an ultrasound, they let you see your baby, and you’re just filled – suffused – with the joy of seeing your beautiful baby boy right there on the screen, every healthy – healthy! – bouncing inch of him, little legs bending and kicking (oooh, my goodness, you have a little active one! says the radiologist), little hand shoved in little mouth, and you think, that’s my baby, that’s my beautiful baby.


And the radiologist says, I just need to get a look face-on, and pushes and prods at your belly with the ultrasound stick, and then exclaims, oh, look, there’s the little face!


And you think, oh, my. SKELETOR.

But he’s still the most beautiful boy that you’ve ever seen.

    Heh… we had one of those also. We ended up not showing it to people it freaked us out so much.

    Love the first picture though!

    that’s so precious! I used to call my son “the chicken wing” because I ate (vegetarian) chicken wings the night before I got the ultrasound. I swore it didn’t look like a baby and that the radiologist who could see everything was on crack. I said are you sure that’s my uterus and not my stomach cavity? Later on I had to get more ultrasounds and we got one of the best side views of his little face. Then I called him Charlie Brown and I still have that ultrasound pic framed next to one of his baby pictures. The ultrasound technology is fascinating!
