4-D Pics




Here she is!! Apparently baby girl was giving the tech a hard time. Her hands were around her face a ton and she was moving so much it was hard to get a super good shot. I was really hoping for a face front shot but it just didn't happen. The big fluffy stuff around the top of her head that looks like a beret or a chef's hat...that's the placenta. TMI?? Sorry. I have to say this place is NEW and they still had a few kinks to work out. I got several printed pics because they were having some trouble with their printer. The cd and dvd are nice but a lot of the pics are so blurry you can't make anything out. The girl was fresh out of school and Mike and I both are wondering if a more experienced sonographer would have gotten us more for our money. Live and learn I suppose. We still had fun. We invited Aunt Pat, Mike's parents and Aunt KK and we also brought Lindsay. I had no idea she would react poorly but she did NOT like seeing mommy on the table. Aunt KK had to take her in and out of the room a couple of times. (Thanks Karen)! It will be interesting to see how she reacts to me in the hospital bed.
After the ultrasound we went out for a steak dinner (protein, protein for me) with the in laws. Lindsay ate like a champ and we found a really good restaurant. If you have a Texas Roadhouse near you they do a pretty great steak. WAY better than Longhorn. So here's to a good glucose test tomorrow. Here's hoping I get through it, keep it down and pass the darn thing with flying colors!
Thanks everyone for all your positive comments and well wishes. I really appreciate all your support!

The first one is a great picture - just think 5 years ago they couldn't do that at all ...

Good luck tomorrow I hope you pass with flying colors!

The photos are great! Luke was also freaked out at the doctors office. When Alex was born he wanted nothing to do with me and he is a big time mama's boy! He would barely even look at me. He was only 14 months old. It broke my heart.

Those pics are really cool!

I'm anxious to hear how your 3-hour test went...

I love the pics! We took our nephews with us and the youngest (4 at the time) didn't understand how we were going to see the baby so he kept asking us how we were going to take the baby out to see it and then put it back in. :-)
