Baby By Stage via Ultrasound

I won’t be afraid to say that I am pro life when it comes to a baby.  Unless of course, the mother’s life is at risk or in other extenuating circumstances, a life is a life.  You may or may not know, but I work part time as an Ultrasound Technologist.  In my field, I get to see a lot of different things via ultrasound.  I scan just about everything from abdomen, pelvis, legs and arms, babies and more.  I see a range of emotions from a patient as it can be a happy or sad experience for them.  I didn’t work in ultrasound with my first 2 babies, but after seeing this little girl at every stage, my stance on abortion is even more pronounced.  I first saw a heartbeat at 5 weeks and 3 days.  She was alive, living, had a heartbeat when only the size of a tiny sesame seed.  I believe she had a spirit at conception and that her purpose was to come to have a body and be born into a loving family.  I wanted to share her growth and development over the last 5 months.

If you’ll notice, the pictures have gotten farther apart.  I scanned myself a lot at first until I felt her moving for peace of mind.  Now that I feel her thumps, kicks and rolling around all day long, I don’t see her via ultrasound quite as often.  There you have it – baby by ultrasound through the 2nd trimester!  Life is the most amazing thing to me and I’m thankful to a loving Heavenly Father who has blessed our family with it.

    I feel the same way- a woman doesn’t have the right to take a life because the life she is taking exists in her body. It’s a human being, where ever it happens to be located.

    That is awesome you got to see the baby at 5 weeks. When I was pregnant, they would not even see me until 8 or something like that.

    This is SO cool! Obviously for you, you know exactly what to look for in an ultrasound. I loved the one where you caught her yawning and think that’s such a special thing that you can show her when she gets older. 🙂

    What a special way to share your baby!

    It was a very difficult time and one I’ll never forget. I was only about 12 years old and what scared me so bad was her almost Hemorrhaging. She kept me home from school that day because she felt something was happening….it surely did

    Isn’t human life and development amazing?! I always cherished seeing my little ones and appreciate the technology that enabled me to do so!

    I totally agree with you,,im a retired nurse that used to work postpartum an then for a ob/gyn doctor,,ive seen women use abortion as birthcontrol,,one lady stands out,she had 6 previous abortions mostly in the second trimester,,an then had a still born baby,,an just couldnt believe it had happened to her,,it was so hard for me to show emphaty for her an requested that I be removed from taking care of her,,,ppl dont seem to realize that the more abortions you have takes a toll on the body ,,abortions werent meant to be a type of birth control because you are too lazy or whatever to use proper birth control,ive seen too many come in with 5 or more abortions in the second trimester,,your baby is so beautiful an now ill get off my soapbox,,

      Wow, that is really sad. 6 abortions? I would think the cost of birth control would be much cheaper than aborting a pregnancy. The sad thing is, so many women would LOVE to be able to adopt or have a child of their own and when women make choices like that, I think it’s completely selfish. I’m right on that soapbox with you. 🙂

    Wow, you have so many pics!!

    Amazing pics and what you can do these days to follow the progress is amazing. The pic at 12 weeks reminded me of when my mom miscarried at around 12 weeks and I was with her. The baby actually fell into the toilet, I cried and cried and had to get it to send with her to the hospital. I love that we can follow along with the growth of our babies.

      That breaks my heart to hear that story. I can’t even imagine or fathom what you both went through.
