Prenatal Grandchild Pictures

This is so cool—I have photos made from ultrasound images of my grandchild-to-be! My daughter's obstetrician is "pretty sure" that the baby is a girl.


Side view of my grandchildThere's a baby in there! This is a ultrasound side view of Becky and Li's baby at 5 months' gestation. The baby is due to arrive sometime after May 18, which is Li's birthday and when Becky is supposed to graduate from the State University of New York at Stony Brook with a master's degree in social work.




Measuring the baby's headThe obstetrician measured the baby's head.








Hearing the baby's heartbeatBecky and Li were thrilled to hear their baby's heartbeat, which was recorded by ultrasound.







Becky says that the next time the physician orders ultrasound viewing, it will be with the new three-dimensional technology, which wasn't available even as recently as 2001, when I was pregnant with Becky's youngest brother. That will be amazing, because we'll all be able to see what the baby's face looks like.

Of course, I also find it very cool to watch Becky's belly to catch quick baby movements. I've warned Becky that I'm gonna glom the baby whenever she and Li bring their child over to visit. :-)
