Witnessing the four chambers of a heart fiercely pounding, examining brain and spine development, and watching the tiny feet and hands move about with ease in utero is breathtaking. For lucky parents–to–be, an ultrasound technician will gather a slew of the baby's first photos for the new family to take home.

As technology now allows, many expecting parents choose to share their news by emailing the black-and-white snapshots of their newest addition. As a way to keep family up–to–date, I like to send the pictures along as the pregnancy progresses. Did you also share your ultrasound pictures?
