The baby’s “fetal name” is Wedge. That is, since we still don’t know the gender, we’ve been calling him or her Wedge for a few months. That’s the name we’ll be using for a while, and honestly, at this point it will be difficult for me not to call the child “Wedge” after his/her birth. My best friend’s son just turned six, and we still call the little guy “Frifry” from time to time.
Wedge’s first picture was on August 1 at 12 weeks (see Photos/Video page). We had to get an early ultrasound because the doc thought Maryalice was a bit further along than originally thought. No worries, though. It turns out that we’re right on schedule and everything looked great. The next ultrasound is set for September 19, when we should find out if Wedge is a girl’s or boy’s name.
For those who haven’t yet asked me directly, can you guess where the name “Wedge” came from and what its significance is? Reply in Comments.
