4-D Ultrasound images

June 23, 2009 at 5:56 pm (Uncategorized)

Okay, so you have to use your imagination in some of them, kind of like finding images in the clouds, but is is pretty amazing that they can capture her little face. First she started out with her feet in her face so I had to move around a lot to convince her to get them out of the way. Maybe she is going to be a gymnast? She was pretty sleepy at 11 am and seems to be a lot more active in the evening, kind of like me. In a couple of them you can see her left hand up by her face. Not sure who she looks like just yet.

30 weeks and hanging in there

June 18, 2009 at 3:25 pm (Uncategorized)

I just went for my 30 week appointment. I get to go every two weeks for my appointments now until I am 9 months and then I get to go every two weeks. It’s nice to get a check-up more often now, but they literally take 5 minutes. The doctor comes in. Asks how I am feeling, listens to the heartbeat and then measures my stomach and then I am on my way.

I feel like I am finally getting a decent belly now.  Not just looking like I had one too many ice cream cones. The baby is pretty active and especially wiggly when I lay back. I think it gives her more room to move around then when I am sitting. She likes to kick me in my right rib which is not so pleasant but I am able to feel what I think is a foot in that area right after the kick which is kind of cool and bizzare all at the same time.

Eric and I have decided to get one of those 4-D ultrasounds this weekend, so stay tuned for photo uploads. We are anxious to see her little face!

28 weeks and counting…

June 18, 2009 at 3:14 pm (Uncategorized)

The doctor recommended that we have another ultrasound to check on the placenta. The good news is that the placenta has moved up enough and will continue to move up as the baby grows. If the placenta did not move away from my cervix by week 36 I would be looking at the possibility of pre-term labor and most likely a c-section. Baby was facing down already. Maybe she will come early? Don’t think I would be that lucky. She will probably come when I am already 42 weeks pregnant. If she’s stubborn like her mom that will most likely be the case!

We went for a 24 week ultrasound to double check a low-lying placenta. It was nice to get another shot at figuring out what we were having. After many attempts the technician said she was 85% certain it was a little girl. She was able to almost solidly confirm girl parts. So we know and are able to start planning. Thank goodness!

It’s a …

Eric and I went for our 20 week ultrasound. We were anxiously awaiting the “It’s a boy” or “It’s a girl”, but much to our dismay our little one is very modest and had it’s legs closed tighter than Fort Knox. The ultrasound technician commented on how active the baby was and how every time she would locate something for a measurement or a photo the peanut would move. Hopefully this sign of independence is not a pre-cursor to what is coming! God help us. 

Anyways, because a few of the measurements could not be made we will go back the first week of May to take another look and then maybe we will hear those words…It’s a…
