The dumb old, stupid old tech at the doctor's office said Scout's arms couldn't be moving yet, that what I was seeing was probably the heart. I begged to differ, and so did Scout's dad and Scout's Aunt Megan, who happens to be a recent expert on finding baby body parts in an ultrasound. The heart was beating, so there was already movement there, but it was obvious that the arms were moving, too. The kid looked like it was dancing up a storm.
So today I found an online pregnancy calendar and what do you think it says for today?
8 weeks 6 days
Baby's arms and legs are moving now. This would be visible on ultrasound.
So there. I know what I saw, and I saw my kid dancing. Or swimming. Or something that required arm movement.
It was the strangest sensation to see a baby in there. And very amazing to see the heart beating and those little arms going to town.
