Say hello to the little one!
The ultrasound was wonderful – everything looked good. The baby was moving around SO much in there! I can’t believe I can’t feel it. Matt and I were both surprised since we’re so used to seeing still u/s photos. I figured it would move its arms a little, but it was moving its whole body a ton. The tech needed the baby to get into a certain position for the NT test, and it took a good 30 minutes of wiggling my uterus around to get it there. The baby is a stubborn little one who wanted maximum attention from the outside world!
Check out this shot of the paw! Don’t worry – there are 5 fingers. The thumb was tucked!
After our appointment, I put the finishing touches on BERF and then met my friend Eileen for a walk! She invited me on one and coincidence had it that I had to walk to UVA for a play tonight, so Eileen walked me there. Thanks for the company! It was a gorgeous night.
My dinner + theater date was my other friend Lindsey, who works at UVA and was able to get us tickets to see Vinegar Tom.
We met at Bodo’s (at my request!) for a quick dinner before the show.
Check out this monster!!! Whole wheat + cream cheese galore.
Salad, which I wasn’t in the mood for but ate half of for the nutrients.
And Bodo’s famous raspberry seltzer! It’s not sweet – just flavored! Wish all restaurants carried it.
Check out the cream cheese smash!! I loved every bite of this.
Vinegar Tom was one of UVA’s spring productions. Set in 17th century England, it was about witch trials.
Brilliantly executed, the actors were awesome and the music (which was a rock band!) was great too. The whole play was witty and sarcastic.
Lindsey lives downtown too, so we walked home together (this was planned given the dark!) 2.5 miles went by SO fast! I think I walked close to 8 miles today. Not missing running at all with all the walking!
Matt was already asleep when I got home, so I can’t wait to join him for some rest – so tired!
Yay! So excited for you Kath 🙂 Can’t wait for Berf!!!
Stephanie @ Legally Blinde says
The ultrasound pictures are great!! I had no idea they moved around so much at this stage of the pregnancy – very exciting 🙂 Ever since your trip to NYC, I’ve had a craving for bagels + cream cheese, and after seeing your bagel from tonight, I’m extremely happy that I’m visiting NYC in a couple of weeks so I can get my very own!
Canadian Colleen says
What great ultrasound pictures. Hard to believe how much they grow in such a short period of time. I loved it when I started to feel my babies move inside. Can’t wait for your new website.
Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table says
That is so exciting!!! Congrats to you both. 🙂
Kelli H (Made in Sonoma) says
I cant wait!!
it’s weird to think it’s moving around in there so much and you can’t feel anything.
Wow! I can’t believe how clear the Ultrasound photos are–What amazing little fingers!
J3nn(Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) says
Awwww, BERF is so cute already! I have a feeling it’s a boy. I could be wrong! 🙂

What a cute little bambino! So happy for you both — what an adventure you have ahead of you!

Please come up after class on Tuesday so I can officially meet you, Jenny!!
Kerry @ Totes My Oats says
So exciting to see that picture!! Sounds like a nice night. I totally understand what you mean about walking – it’s fun to get in a lot of walking throughout the day!
The ultrasound pictures are amazing! I’ve seen plenty ultrasound pictures in my life but they always take my breath away a bit because the idea of creating/growing a human is amazing to me! I can’t wait for the new website 🙂
Congratulations! Can’t wait for BERF 😉

What a fun and exciting day for you! My boys were little stinkers- always hiding eachothers’ faces, hands, everything! Glad to hear all is still well.
Can’t wait for BERF! I just found out on Saturday that I’m pregnant with my second 🙂 I’m still in that stage of being VERY tired and veggies are not appealing whatsoever! Your u/s pics are wonderful, thanks for sharing. Isn’t that just the best, seeing the u/s?? I cried every time!
i cannot wait for berf! ah you must just be so excited and happy, I’m glad everything is going so well thus far! the amount of cream cheese on that bagel is pretty epic! haha.
Did you ask the tech if they could tell the gender? I found out the gender for both my boys at the 12 week NT scan!
I did 🙁 They said it’s too hard to predict so they don’t even bother to look
Kiran @ KiranTarun.com says
Aahhh… so excited for you + Matt! Cannot wait for the unveiling of Berf 🙂
Khushboo Thadani says
Wow it’s so surreal to think a baby is growing in you- amazing photos!
New follower on Network Blogs! Congrats!!!! Hope you come by and follow 🙂
Your going to be so busy blogging, Great Harvest website, KERF and now BERF?
With my son, the tech couldn’t get the baby to turn around so we didn’t know if it was a boy or a girl until he was actually born! I think there are pros and cons about knowing beforehand.
Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga says
Kath that is so awesome and I am so happy for the two of you that you could watch the little peanut moving and grooving and doing his/her thing…fabulous!!! There is nothing like seeing your child in action for the first time to really put life in perspective, right! 🙂 CONGRATS!
Zoe @ loseweightandgainhealth says
What amazing ultrasound pictures. They have improved so much in the last 10 years since my last one. I remember how exciting it was to see baby properly. Glad all is going so well 🙂
Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning says
So cool! I can’t remember – are you going to find out the baby’s sex beforehand?
Looks like a pretty great day all together! 🙂
Brittany (Healthy Slice of Life) says
Wow, your tech really got some great images! I’m n pins and needles waiting for BERF!
Lauren @ What Lauren Likes says
awww! That pic is so sweet 🙂 Looks like a fun night!
Brittnie (A Joy Renewed) says
Aren’t these ultrasound photos the best? Love seeing my little one wiggling around. Congrats. 🙂
Aly H. says
Congrats! I cannot wait for BERF! Your baby looks beautiful already and that bagel – well let’s just say I haven’t craved a bagel and cream cheese for years (used to work at a bagel shop) and now the very idea of it is intoxicating 🙂
Mary Lou says
Congrats!! What a great pic!! I remember being so surprised too that I could see my son move but couldn’t feel him move at that point. So weird! It will be so exciting when you do feel movement. Can’t wait for BERF!!
Simply Life says
Oh that is so exciting! wow- so fun to see how “real” it is! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Ah, what amazing pictures! I was wide awake at 3:45 a.m. I am 52 years old and have insomnia (because of menopause). Guess what I was thinking about while lying in bed in the middle of the night? You and your baby! This is what happens to you once you become a mother. You worry about not only your own children, but other people’s children as well! Ha! So glad everything looks fine.
Aww you sound like my mom 🙂 I was actually up with insomnia because of a different set of hormones also thinking about the baby!
Mr./Ms. personality is looking mighty good in there…those are some clear u/s photos! Whee! 🙂
Jamie @ Don't Forget the Cinnamon says
Walking is the best! I love living in a place that enables it and I can sure tell that you do too!!
Awww, how sweet is that? I remember those moments with my 3 little ones…you will never forget how you felt when you saw him/her today. And BTW, I’m thinking “her”…I’m getting girl vibes;) So happy for you two!
Her! I was thinking he during the u/s and another reader say boy. Interesting!
Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles says
Wow! That’s quite the cream cheese explosion! Yummy! Sounds like great day with the untrasound capped off with a lovely evening!
Glad your ultrasound went great, so cute! I was amazed as well at how much baby actually looked like a baby at this point and how much he/she was moving around!! Such an exciting time.
I’m also majorly craving bagels with thick plain cream cheese, had one after my checkup yesterday 🙂 Can’t wait to read BERF!
Do you have your anatomy scan set yet? We find out on March 21st at 18 weeks!!
It won’t be until about 20/21 weeks – so far away!
Mine was supposed to be 20 weeks too at the hospital but I’m too impatient and got in at a 3D ultrasound place at 18 weeks. You should see if you have any nearby! I’ve heard of some people in the States getting them done at 16 weeks!! (I’m in Canada and 18 is the earliest I can find)
We do have a 3D place in Richmond. I don’t think it’s that expensive, and I’d love to do it. It’s mostly the drive there that is my obstacle!
Miriam @ Bellaspire says
I lived in Charlottesville for 4 years and that picture of my Bodos makes me soooo envious! I would always get an everything bagel with smoked turkey and munster. Ahh, memories!! Your baby is trying to give you a fist pump in that US pic 🙂
Marcia Compton says
Katherine and Matt, I am so happy for you both, Are you going to find out if it is a boy or a girl?
Hi Mrs Compton! Just packed up your granola yesterday 🙂 YES we’d love to find out!
Jules @ La Petite Maison Verte says
Wow, those U/S pics are so adorable – I love his/her little nose and fingers 🙂 How amazing to see your baby in action! Thank you for sharing!
Hope @ With A Side Of Hope says
So exciting!!! That is such a great ultrasound picture. 🙂 I can only imagine how wonderful that moment must have been for the two of you. I cannot wait to follow along on your new blog. 🙂
That bagel looks delish!
Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin says
Oh wow, it must have been so amazing to see the ultrasound! Congrats! 🙂
Congrats on your u/s & wiggler 😉 It is so amazing to see it 😉 In another 8-10 weeks she/he will be keeping you up at night with the wiggling 😀 Enjoy it 🙂
[email protected] Broken Cookies Don't Count says
It’s so neat to “meet” the little ones!
Katie @ Peace Love & Oats says
I love that you could see the hand like that! I think it’s amazing how quickly they develop! Congrats!
I love Charlottesville restaurants!!
Cait's Plate says
It’s just so incredible that that little bean is growing inside of you! Do you just love it so much already?!?! I’m so glad everything went well 🙂
That bagel looks awesome. You really can’t beat a good cream cheese bagel!
Aww, hi baby! Love the hand shot!
I had a yummy asiago bagel with tons of cream cheese last week. It hit the spot!
What a cutie! Great shot. The hand is awesome! How many people are going to say they think it’s a boy from that pic? It’s just the cord! Our first ultrasound at the nuchal appt was so awesome, I was just smiling ear to ear watching.
Deirdre @ Oh Well Whatever.com says
What a wonderful experience, I love the ultrasounds. Wait til you do start feeling the baby in there, it is the neatest thing in the world. Such a blessing.
Awe, baby is so cute already! Cream Cheese was one of my cravings too. Just goes down so smoothly. Yum!
Congrats Kath! So exciting… It’s the best when you can start to feel the baby wiggling around and kicking in there. It all seems like such a miracle, doesn’t it — pregnancy is such a fabulous ride!
Aw, I”m glad you had such a sweet ultrasound. We had one this week as part of our First Tri genetic testing and, basically, I think I am giving birth to Skeletor the Dancing Skeleton. Not cute.
I’m so glad that everything is going so well. What a cutie you have in there. 🙂 You’ll be able to feel him/her soon. It will feel like bubbles at first. 🙂
Katie @ Talk Less, Say More says
OH MY those little FINGERS!! Melts my heart! 🙂
And you just made me realize my dinner tonight is going to be a bagel with cream cheese! 😉
Awwww…. Such a cute little picture. I bet that was a pretty amazing experience.
