Picture Time!

The ultrasound went very well this morning! Our technician was very nice and printed off lots of pictures, so I scanned in the best ones to post here for you.

Everything looked great. I was worried about the heart, from the diabetes stuff, but that was fine. Also, we got a good lip shot, and no cleft. So far we aren't sure on the actual palate, the angle wasn't great, but our chances aren't phenomenally high or anything so I'm not too worried. Baby was very active too, and it was so fun to see and feel the movement at the same time!
Here we a picture of an adorable little foot, with the toes nice and clear. The other foot was just as cute, but baby didn't bring it down until after she took this shot and hit print.

A nice profile shot. We had a hard time getting this angle, so they had me get up and use the bathroom. No problems there! I had been drinking lots of water just in case, so was mildly relieved to have that excuse. This was right after we got a great view of baby's lip, which looked great. Baby has an arm up underneath the chin, that's the solid white by the chest.

And what everyone is waiting to see!

Ha Ha! Just had to draw it out a bit, because of course it was the first shot we got and was very clear.

Okay, here ya go! Um, lets just say there is no doubt what this little guy is. At all.

I have to admit, I was the tiniest bit dissapointed for a second. But we are just thrilled that everything is formed the way it's supposed to be. He measures exactly on my due date, which means that I'm doing well on my diet. He weighs about 10 oz, and his heartrate is a solid 150. Absolutely perfect! Boys are so much fun, and I am glad the Lord is entrusting me with another sweet spirit, and hopefully future missionary! Just think, somebody has to have boys to send out into the world and teach people about his love and word. And I am lucky enough to get 4 of them! Who knows, maybe this time I'll get that redhead I keep hoping for? Plus, I already have everything for little boys, and I am a whiz at changing their diapers in the middle of the night. :-)

Now I just have to wait another 20 weeks to hold him and kiss him and smell his sweet baby smell.....

Yup, he wasn't shy at all, was he! He's so cute, with that little foot, and that adorable profile shot. I love ultrasound photos. :-)

Congrats! I know you were hoping for a girl. But it is nice that you already have things for a boy. If we have a boy next I will need to get lots of new stuff because it is all girl. Girl everything. Glad you got some great shots. Maybe you will turn out like Uncle Jim and Aunt Connie and have 2 little girls very last.
