Ultrasound


Amazing technology to use sonar waves to create a picture. This was taken a few days ago by the nurse midwife. I outlined the image in white to show better definition. You can faintly see the spine, arms and legs. I laughed because the little thing would'nt hold still long enough to get its measurements...but the midwife said I might be further along than I thought. Anyway, what a profound moment to view an alive being within my own. Quite emotional and beautiful. Thought to send the picture along to you all.

wow, that is amazing. Like myo said, a fine piece of art your creating....the magic of maternity.

How is the art market going, by the way? Hopefully its cooling down finally, giving some relief to your weekend excursions.

I dreamt last night that I myself was pregnant and people from all over were coming to rub my belly because it was a miracle. It was very odd. I woke up not knowing what it all meant. Were people rubbing my belly much like rubbing Buddha's belly, or because it was such a miracle? Whatever it meant I woke up feeling such a loss because I really wasn't pregnant and missing that feeling that I experienced so long ago of having life within my own. I envy you yet am so happy for you.
