Ultrasound Reveals… A Belly Party?

Now, I am no doctor, but something about our little girl’s 12-week ultrasound struck me as… curious:

Candy Junior

Unusual, no? I thought the baby was supposed to be the size of a lime at that stage — not have a lime in her fruity cocktail?  Yet there she is, smirking and totally chilling in her hammock with a Daiquiri!  *SIGH*  I don’t remember reading anything about this in What To Expect When You’re Expecting.

In all honesty, the ultrasound technician laughed when she saw Baby posing like that and did indeed say, “Looks like all baby needs is a cocktail in there!”

That’s our kid, all right.

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. She also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats who enjoy blanketing every inch of the house in kitty fur.

    Oh yes, J-Force, I’ve been gobbling up every baby book and TV show there is. A “Deliver Me” marathon on Discovery Health? Mmmmm. A slice of heaven.

    My little one was dancing during the ultrasound. Literally waving the arms in the air like a maniac and spinning around like a crazed top…..the tech was cracking up and said, “Well! Your little one is photogenic!” even put photogenic on the notes section sent to my ob…….
