Whoorlito Update

We had our 18-week ultrasound yesterday afternoon, and whoorlito is doing excellent. Heart looks good, organs look good, bacon tastes goood, pork chops taste goood, etc. But the boy just wasn’t cooperating! He was beyond camera shy- all curled up, facing away from the ultrasound wand. Now, that is NOT indicative of my child. Maybe D’s child, but not mine.

Remember these ultrasound photos from 5 weeks ago?

Hello, there! Please take a gander at my darling profile. Have you seen my cute button nose? What about my cute belly? DAMN, I’M CUTE AND COZY!


Oh, wait…you’re interested in my gender? Well, let me spread my legs as wide as possible so you can check out my package. How’s that for a hot dog? I’M PACKING HEAT!


Naturally, when we had our appointment yesterday, we assumed whoorlito would be performing circus stunts for our viewing pleasure. Not so much. He must have been tired out from the Chipotle spicy salsa I made him eat for lunch. It took the ultrasound tech about 15 minutes to get a clear shot of his genitals to confirm the sex. He just would NOT open his legs to ensure the money shot. So freaking STUBBORN…wait, maybe he does take after his mom…

Finally, the legs parted, we confirmed it was a boy, and tried desperately to get a decent shot of his face/profile.

This was the best shot of the day.


What’s that you ask? Hell if I know. Nah, actually it’s his precious yet alien-like face. I annotated to help out a little…



I guess what surprised me the most was his bone formation and size. The spine was incredible- you could see every little vertebrae. To think that just a month ago, he was pretty much a squishy cupie doll. And when the tech showed me his physical location in my stomach, with the head being on the lower left side of my abdomen and his feet ALL THE WAY OVER on the upper right side of my abdomen, I realized that this is really happening. And it blew me away. I can’t wait to meet this little man.

It’s official- a little belly has formed.

    I am officially touched. Really, not a dry eye in Dev’s office. My lunchtime Chipotle has created a serious pop in my belly.

    That’s because you are preggers and the HORMONES ARE RAGING! :) I cried a little myself, though. It’s just so amazing, exciting…you know.

    Don’t you think we could eat Chipotle every day? It has all the food groups.

    Aww, that little lady killer is going to knock us all dead with his stunning smile SO soon. It’s really starting to be real now. (And your stomach is gorgeous, by the way!)

    I can’t wait until August.

    What a cute belly! And he is adorable too. I remember feeling completely blown away too when I saw my daughter’s spine for the first time. And their little feet with perfect teeny-tiny toes!

    Dude, LOST has me totally confused. What in the hell is going on with the flashbacks and the others’ disguises?

    Aww, I love the belly!

    And I vote that, yes, you CAN eat Chipotle every day. Sometimes twice.

    I am LOVING all this baby talk. …and your mom is one heck of a baby clothing purchaser. It’s all so cute.

    That’s it, I’m calling Mark and telling him we’re getting married because I want a baby. …of my very own. I don’t want to be tempted to steal yours :)

    Boys are awesome. Also, he’s just wanting you to be surprised when he comes out.

    My boy wouldn’t let me get a look at anything besides his little weiner.

    I don’t know which is cuter, the baby or the belly! Glad things are going so well. And the “Pulp Fiction” reference had me giggling.
