Here's a shot of both of Jordan's feet. The left foot (on the bottom) is "normal." You can see the heel, pad, arch and toes look fine. The right foot appears to be "balled" with the toes seeming to be a little smashed. Later ultrasounds showed that this foot is also hyperflexed up toward the shin bone. It is a good sign that they've seen all the bones in the right foot despite the abnormalities.
They have been unable to get a clear picture of her affected hand (the left hand) but will hopefully see it a little better on the next ultrasound.

Here's the 3D image from our 20 week ultrasound. You can see from the picture that Jordan's cleft lip is unilateral (on one side) on the left side. This is a good thing as it's much easier to repair than a bilateral wide opening. With a unilateral cleft lip there is much more skin to work with when they close it up at around three months. We're hoping to get better, clearer shots of the face at our next ultrasound, scheduled for August 24th.
