Come Meet Our Son...

...or daughter! LOL Yeah I know that was a tricky title!! :)

NO! We are NOT finding out the gender; although a small part of me does want to just know, I remember how exciting it was to find out at the moment of Kayla's birth and want to do that again.

I mentioned I had an u/s appt last Thur. I'm finally getting a chance to post a few pictures. She gave me a few more pictures, but they are standard 2-d profile, here is an arm, 2 feet etc.

The baby is measuring 5 days ahead, hope s/he doesn't get too big! Kayla was 6 lbs 13 oz and I don't want a baby much bigger than she was! :)

S/he was lying face down in a vertical position with the butt just under my belly button. Little stinker wouldn't cooperate and move the head much to get a good face shot though! Baby is about 7 inches long and I think she said 10 oz (but don't quite remember).

Here is the little foot the tech said was about 1 inch. One little inch! It's amazing I can feel all this movement every day!


Being shy and hiding...and looks so skeletal still at this stage! The tech said those great 3-d pics you see in magazines usually happen around 30 wks when there is some fat on the bones :)


The best she could get of the face


The perinatologist will see me one more time, as she said for a "growth check." I'm not sure why if baby has been growing well so far and everything looks fine, but I'm not going to argue with another chance to get a peek! Maybe baby will cooperate next time and smile for the camera! :)

I can't wait to show these to Rhi and Nate... Usually when Nate sees pics like this, he'll make a guess about the gender. Wonder what he'll say. I know what I was thinking, but I won't say... I'll tell you if I was right when the baby is born.

Every minute counts.... said...

The pictures make me cry with joy!
Babies are a wonderment.

I have been lurking for sometime, thanks to Tara, but now that I feel more comfortable..I will comment here and there. Thanks for the smile today! Your children are both beautiful!

PEA said...

I should smack you for that title!!! LOL You had me good there! hehe Oh Michelle, isn't it fantastic how well you can see the baby with those 3D pictures...modern technology is so wonderful:-) xox

Jessica said...

I can't wait to see the next set of ultrasound pictures!

Tricia said...

How exciting!!! And you had me for a second with the title!

Karen said...

Wow, so exciting, that everything is going well and you are feeling well is so wonderful. That scan is fantastic, they weren't doing those yet when we had our two - I love it!

Tara said...

Goosebumps! I love ultrasound pictures. Enjoy those little kicks you're feeling :) I know your husband is missing getting to see these pics - I can't imagine how excited you will be to show them to him.

RK said...

That title popped up on my Google Reader and I was so surprised! What a tricky one you are....

Glo said...

The pictures are special. Iwish they had all this techology when I was having my children. The pic you saw on my blog...well my husband is on the side in that pic.

jennifergg said...

Beautiful!

Christine said...

Those are some beautiful U/S pics.
It still amazes me how far technology has come,to be able to see with such detail even the facial features.
Congratulations!
Thank you so much for sharing.

Christina said...

How exciting! I wish those 3d shots were available when I had my girls those are SO cool!

Shelley said...

Wow! S/he looks amazing - I love those 'alien' pictures - they are so exciting. Does Kayla like looking at them?

Anonymous said...

It it still amazing to actually see a baby while you are still Pregnant.. since we do not live close by it is always a nice surprise to read "reports" on your pregnancy and see pics too... Still trying to figure out when I and (great aunt Debbie :) ) will be coming out, either before or after the birth..............I have only so much time off from work.... love mom

Tammy said...

Oh, these just make me almost tear up...I can only imagine how they make you feel! Look at that sweet little face!
I so wish I could have had 3-D done with my girls...they had the technology, but not all places did them.
Now, I have to go read your post below and get caught up! :)

Nancy said...

I have goosebumps. This post reminds me of all that was wonderful about being pregnant. I loved every second of it.

Mom/Mil/GM said...

Oh look at the cute little guy.... or girl :-) I just can't wait to hold and spoil that little too!!

The Rocking Pony said...

Oh, how wonderful! I hope things continue to go well, and it's great that you'll get another peek. Hopefully you can see the face better. I remember with one of Micah's ultrasounds I told my husband that he looked just like our then-youngest. We could tell, in the womb!

Dori (Aviva's mommy) said...

Love seeing the U/S pics...brings back good memories.

The last pic is the best.

Amy said...

Congrats, Michelle! Be well!

Renee's Ramblings said...

What precious pictures!!! Thanks for sharing. Babies are truly miraculous!

BTW- You are cool and fabulous!!

Sgt and Mrs Hub said...

Love the pictures! So glad everything has been smooth. I have to say that even though Eve was 7 pounds 6 oz, Judah being 9 pounds was a much easier delivery! He slept better as well - I always thought it was because he had the extra weight.

I'm happy for you that you are able to go in again and have some more time to look at your baby! I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures!

Awwwww, I'm a sap! I cried at these precious pictures. What a blessing you have growing in that belly of yours. I'm so happy for y'all.

Conny said...

OMG - how exciting is that???? I am so envious! I think I want another baby ... at least for the newborn pics I love so much!!! :-)

Tracey said...

I love ultrasound pics! And you and my sister make me CRAZY with not finding out the gender on PURPOSE!!! Grrr....

Laura said...

Wonderful pictures. Babies are such an incredible blessing. Take care!

Cindy said...

Oh Michelle, you just made my day! I'm so, so happy for you. :)

Shannon **Gabi's Mom** said...

Are you having a hippie or a baby? lol just kidding, but those "peace fingers" he or she is holding up made me wonder...

~Melissa~ said...

Beautiful, amaxing pictures!!

Overwhelmed! said...

Oh my gosh, those pictures are amazing! I'm so excited for you and can't wait to "meet" your baby. Actually, the next time I'm in Alamogordo, NM on business I may very well get an in-person meeting. :)

O Mama Mia said...

AWESOME! I love getting ultrasounds! And it looks like this time we get to do a 3D too! What week are you for your 3D?
I'm too obsessive. We're going to find out what we're having. I can't wait any longer! ;)

Sandra said...

I'm so thrilled for you, it's like I'm seeing MY baby for the first time LOL

This blogging world is a funny thing, one of you ladies gets pregnant and it feels like we're all pregnant with you LOL

Love the pictures, what a cutie already :)

Tammy J said...

Awwwwwww so very sweet...doncha just wanna kiss that sweet lil' foot??

When it comes to determining the gender of your baby, they say that if you:

1. Keep thinking about the gender you'd like ...

2. Talk about the gender you'd like ...

3. Dream about the gender you'd like ...

4. Buy books for the gender you'd like ...

5. Buy clothes for the gender you'd like ...

... you'll still be wasting your time, unless you get a sonogram.
