4D Look at Baby Girl

Last Thursday, we got to look at our baby girl through the 4-D ultrasound.  She was not very cooperative, I am sorry to say and insisted upon keeping her hands up around her face most of the time.  She currently weighs 3.5 lbs. and based on her growth is in the 59th percentile.  Here are some pictures!

We are looking forward to meeting her in person and cannot believe she will be here so soon!  Only 10 weeks to go!

Time Acceleration....

Happy New Year everyone! Time is moving way too fast! I can't believe that I am almost 28 weeks pregnant! The baby will be here very soon....and I am not too stressed about things. Since we have been down this road before, I feel like things will go pretty smoothly. I had another ultrasound yesterday after my glucose tolerance test. This ultrasound was to mainly see if my placenta had moved because it had been low-lying early on in the pregnancy. We got good news--it had moved and the baby's head is that is GOOD! She is measuring right on target and has a strong heartbeat. The ultrasound tech even took some 4-D shots so that we would have a good facial picture of her in case she did not want to cooperate when we had our 4-D ultrasound. She did have her hand over her eyes in a couple of the pictures.

Hand over her eyes, but you can clearly see her mouth is open!  

Closeup where you can her eyes, nose, and mouth.....this looks a lot like Seth's 4D ultrasound picture.

I did not know what I was looking at here, but the U/S tech said that she has a thin layer of hair already on her head.
We hope to have some more pictures to show as we go for our 4D ultrasound in a couple of weeks.  Thanks to everyone for their thoughts, prayers, and well-wishes!
