i loved our ultrasound appointment. the best thing for me was hearing that she is healthy. when the sonologist said "well, she is measuring perfect size", it made me so happy. especially because i just wasn't expecting that. it was so amazing to see her measure everything on the baby, it's just an indescribable feeling to see pictures of her feet or the size of her femur bone. so after we knew she was a girl, the sonologist was trying to get a 3D picture of her face. Unfortunately little missy wasn't ready to show us her beauty quite yet. her head was on my left side and so that is where the doc was pushing to get that view. this is all we were getting. and while her arm and ear are really cute... we wanted to see more! she just kept burying her face in the placenta.
so then the lady said, "i've got an idea", she then took the ultrasound thingy and went over to my right side (her feet) and jabbed really hard three times. she said, "that usually gets them moving!" so immediately she went over to the left side to see if we'd catch her face, and this time we basically got the back of her! we all laughed that she did the exact opposite thing and turned even more away into the placenta. grant's words were "well... she is definitely a girl!" ha ha and then "hopefully this isn't telling of the future...". it was funny. so instead we have this pic of her showing us how strong she is. and we love it!
