A reader recently shared her 13wk ultrasound images, side and front views.  The side view is not a perfect profile of the face but a good overall side view of Baby.  The front shot is one I have talked about in the past that looks a bit “alien” which sometimes scares the living daylights out of most parents!  This is because the frontal view of the face shows more of the skeletal features including both orbits.  Looks a bit “Halloween-ish” but I guess we are approaching that time of year.  I’ve included the link to that post below.  (Cut and paste, please!)

Gives meaning to “a face only a mother could love”, right?!  Whomever coined that phrase was surely referring to fetal ultrasound! 😉  I take my cues from my patients; if they love an image, I take it.  If “ew” is the response, I simply move on to some other cuteness.  This mama loved her pics and was happy to share with all of you!  If you have great fetal pics you’d like to share, email them to me.  Maybe you’ll get to be my next post, too!
