17 week ultrasound photos

Ok, so I'm finally putting up some ultrasound pics. I'm not going to put up all of them, just the ones that are either the cutest, or the ones that show the most information. A lot of the pictures are just of a random limb so that the measurements could be taken. I'm not putting up those pictures coz they're kind of boring. This ultrasound was taken 2 weeks ago when I was 17 weeks into the pregnancy. Everything measured normally except for all the bones in the limbs which measured consistently at 14 weeks. For more information, read this post

This is the profile shot, just for cuteness factor. I don't think that much can be seen here about the baby's condition. You can notice (slightly) that the abdomen is larger than the chest/ribs area, but I don't think it's that obvious in this shot...

This is the hand of the baby. The real "cause for concern" is that the thumb is not positioned correctly. Remember in my previous post, I mentioned "hitch hiker's thumb"? This is what it looks like on the ultrasound. (we have multiple pictures of this, this shot captured it the clearest though). 

3D shot of the baby. If you look closely, you can see the shape of the hand in this shot too. (if you click on the picture, it will enlarge and make it easier to see). The arms are disproportionally small, although probably if you're not a doctor, it's harder to see...

You can kind of see the other hand in this picture, although it's somewhat mushed against her face so it's harder to tell the shape of the hand. My understanding is though that the two hands are shaped similarly.

Another 3D shot. The arms do look very small here, even to me. 

So, there's the pics from my 17 week ultrasound. My next ultrasound will be at 20 weeks (which is next week). Hopefully I can get a bunch of pics from that ultrasound too.


  1. Hi Nicole. She is fearfully and wonderfully made, marvellous are the works of our Creator!!

    I'm praying for you all!! God bless.

  2. What a beautiful girl she is!

  3. She has a really pretty smile. I think the 3D ultrasounds are pretty cool. Judah looked like a DJ (disc jockey) in his. She looks cute! I think it's also cool that you know you're having a girl already--we weren't 100% sure with Judah until he pushed his way out. :)

  4. What a beautiful little girl!

  5. This little bub is adorable. I never had any 3D ultrasound taken while in the U.S. It's amazing what technology can do. Even more amazing is your wonderful little baby...

  6. That’s really cool! It’s a wonderful gift you’re able to give them.
