As you can see, I figured out how to post a picture. You can now see little pea in all his/her glourious wonder. The picture was taken on Jennifer's first ultrasound at 6 weeks. The circular shape you see is not the baby. This is what the baby is feeding on until the placenta is formed. The baby in this picture is the undefinable form attached to the "bubble". We were also able to hear the heartbeat and it was one of the most amazing and humbling experiences of my life. All I could think about is the song "I Saw God Today". If you ever need proof of God's existance, listen to the dopplar heart beat of a fetus at 6 weeks!

Update...... since the picture, little pea has more than doubled in size. If another ultrasound was taken now, you would be able to see hands, feet, elbows, eyes, and even the tip of a nose. Also, the baby no longer looks like an alien! Which is good really. For a while I was afraid Jennifer was abducted by aliens and I was really not as talented as I previously thought.

Jennifer is experiencing some more nausea, though not as bad as before. Unfortunatly, we are not out of the woods on the sickness yet. One can hope though. Again, thank you all for your support and we appreciate your comments posted on here. Hope to see you all soon. God Bless and we love you all.
