Picture Preview...

More pictures and explanations coming soon. These are from my ultrasound last Friday...

Alrighty now, the update. Our first ultrasound was September 25th and it was at the typical 20 weeks. It was a less-than-happy experience because my ultrasound tech was not very nice to me. I felt harassed and pretty emotional afterward. I had a discussion with the right people and was offered a second ultrasound - not medically necessary, though.

These are the pictures from my 26 week ultrasound. It was an awesome experience!!! The tech was nice and showed us so much. Of course I was able to see all the medically interesting stuff that I want to see, like the four chambers of the heart, skin layer, spinal cord, etc. and that made my day. Then, we were able to just watch the baby be itself for a few minutes. The baby yawned!!! I must tell you, I have never seen anything cuter. That moment made me fall in love with this little package that much more. Human life is amazing. After our sweet moment with the cutest yawn ever, the ultrasound tech showed a profile of the baby's head and happily pointed out that our precious babe has a healthy sucking reflex already. That was another great moment, just watching that cute little mouth open and close.

I could go on forever, I'm afraid. I am in love! Actually, I should say WE are in love. Skot is incredible. He has been the best future-daddy and pregnant lady helper ever.

Fingers... so cute.

Facial profile... so cute.

Knee, calf, and foot... so cute, again.
Our baby practicing pilates. Can you see the thigh, calf, and foot right in front of "it's" face? So cute.
Awww... cutie baby foot.
I think I would rather omit this one. This is the baby's middle finger. Obviously, I didn't request that this picture be taken. Hmmm... I wonder who did? Not as cute.

I still don't know the gender. I still don't WANT to know the gender. I do appreciate my hubby's photoshop skills... BOY?

Some of you out there know the gender... just a reminder... DON'T SLIP!

I am so excited for you two! I love the ultrasound pictures, they are too cute! I want to know what you are having. Can I find out from one of your family members in Ga? Hope you are feeling well. We would love to see you guys if your going to be in GA for the holidays.

Love it!!!!!!!!!! I'm so glad you were able to get that wonderful experience. Did you get a video too? Some doctors I know let you record it. Mine didn't. I wish I knew what you were having, but I would slip up I know it. Your baby is so precious!!!!!!

What a fun post! I'm glad you got a do-over. Love the hats!! Ultrasounds are a favorite of mine. It was so hard to really think I was pregnant until I could see something on the screen. Then it would go from "it the invader" to "my precious baby".
I'm happy for you two (three)... :)
