    Default Playing around with an ultrasound machine

    So I work in a pediatric ICU so yesterday some nurses and I got our little, rinky dink ultrasound machine we use to look for fluid collections in patient's lungs and such and played around with it to see my little one. The quality of the image isn't super great and we TOTALLY sucked at using it, but we actually saw a lot! It was SO fun! We could see it squirming around, the face, and the little heart beating away. They were trying to get a gender peak, but like I said, we really were terrible at working it (none of us have any formal u/s training) and didn't see. I'll be pulling that baby out every now and then; just can't get caught by management!

    There is another girl here who is 12 weeks along so we peaked at her nugget too. It was swimming around too

    Here's to more days that aren't super busy so we can peak more in the future!

    Oh man, that's so fun! Here I thought I was all powerful with my doppler! If I had access to an u/s machine...it would be dangerous! :P

    Didn't Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes own one? Or was that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie? Oh I can't keep up with the celebs!

    I could just see it now... all the nurses playing with the machines puting it on your belly! I would probably do the same. How fun!
