4.3 mm Long Dinosaur

Had first post-transfer ultrasound this morning. Since we're dealing with IVF we have some very early ultrasound pictures. At this phase, there is just one baby, slightly smaller than a lemon seed and resembles a dinosaur more than a person.

Here's some pictures:

As you might guess, the Official Wife of the Sarcastic Weasel had to come prepared, having already swallowed the letters B-A-B-Y such that, once under the ultrasound device, some clever positioning was all that was required to have them appear in the correct position on the picture.

On the last picture, there is a graphical representation of the mechanical vibrations picked up from the probe corresponding to the movements of the primary pump organ in the primitive circulatory system that is developing... some people might refer to this a the baby's heartbeat.
