11 Aug '04 - 229 W - + 17 - 11 This afternoon's ultrasound

We had another ultrasound this afternoon. Neither Kari nor I are qualified to analyze the results, and the technician isn't allowed to tell us anything, but that isn't going to stop me from giving a detailed description and analysis of what we saw, even though everything I write could be wrong. :)  Everything seems reasonable. They estimated the baby's weight at 4 lbs, 3 oz. Of course, that measurement isn't terribly reliable, so he can be anywhere within a half a pound of that measurement. The technician saw something that she was not sure was a stomach or not. I'm not going to get all excited about that though, because it could turn out to be nothing. It'd be cool though if it was a stomach though, because that would mean that the esophagus isn't completely blocked, maybe. It also looks like the little bugger has a big head, relative to the rest of his body, much to Kari's dismay. I guess we were expecting this, considering that both Kari and I have rather large noggins.

They say that Dr. Ambrose is looking at the pictures right now, so I expect that he will come in later to let us know what he thinks. At that point, I will have to post another entry to correct all of the errors I made in this one.
