The first ultrasound: acquaintance with the baby on the screen, pregnancy and childbirth

One of the most memorable and exciting days during pregnancy for me was the day of the first ultrasound. It was then that I was able to see what a wonderful crumb is inside of me, and even more to love him.

From the day a few different pregnancy tests tested positive, I literally started living with my unborn baby. At one point, he became for me the most important little man, my meaning in life.

I neatly packed all the tests into a bag and put them in storage next to the most valuable documents and things. Every evening, when I came home after work, I read about the peculiarities of fetal development at 5 weeks, then at 6, at 7, and so on. Moreover, out loud, so that the husband also heard how our baby grew up, and what was new with him.

However, the spouse was interested not so much as me. He was pleased with the fact that we would have a baby, and not these little things that for me, the future mother of the firstborn, were extremely important. And I continued to revel in my happiness, looking for maximum information, choosing things and names for my child. And I was looking forward to the ultrasound.

When the day of the first ultrasound came, the duration of my pregnancy was 13 weeks. My husband and I went to the clinic together. But I entered the office alone, because at that time neither I nor he knew that attendants were allowed to attend such events.

True, we later regretted that we did not inquire about this in advance. But the train is gone. Only mother managed to get acquainted with the baby on that day, that is, to me.

And here I am lying on the couch, the doctor plentifully lubricates my stomach with gel and begins to drive the sensor. And on the screen, hanging right in front of me on the wall, appears image of a tiny baby, which gradually increases (with the help of a doctor) in size and becomes like a big baby doll.

It is impossible to describe how happy I was then. The doctor called me the parameters of the child, but I could not take my eyes off the screen. It was enough for me that the fetus develops harmoniously, according to the expected duration of pregnancy, no abnormalities in its development have been identified …. I clearly saw all parts of his body, even his eyes and nose.

Considering earlier pictures on the Internet, I saw that a child in this period is far from being attractive in appearance. My the crumb from the screen was perfect: harmonious, beautiful, most dear, beloved, etc. Then I felt even more strongly what it was like to be a mother, and it doesn’t matter that then it was only future.

I asked the doctor only one question: How long will it be possible to find out the sex of the child?. She replied that usually the baby’s gender is visible after 16 weeks. But, nevertheless, immediately tried to make out the sex of my baby. And after a few seconds, she stated with confidence that I’m waiting for a boy. However, in the conclusion of this fact was silent.

I came out of the office shining. Immediately she was stunned (in a good way) by her husband with the news about her son. He snatched the leaf from me, read it several times, but did not find written confirmation of my words. I just had to believe me.

At home I read that sheet for a long time, remembering the image on the screen. Using a ruler, measured the parameters of the arms, legs, abdominal circumference and head. There were a lot of impressions. The only distress was that the husband did not survive all this. Therefore, after we eagerly began to wait for the next ultrasound.
