37 Week Ultrasound

October 6th, 2008 by Mommy

We were blessed with an ultrasound at 37 weeks with our newest baby. It was such a joy to get a ‘sneak preview’ and see her just a few weeks before her arrival. She wanted some things to remain a surprise and took a nap. She wouldn’t turn and show us her face so we will just have to wait a little longer to see her face. Other than our inability to see her face everything else on the ultrasound was great. She is practicing using her lungs, her heartbeat is good, the amount of fluid for her to swim in is good, her size was appropriate, and the blood flow from me to her was great. Our special surprise was that we were able to see her hair. That is something that I would never imagine that we would be able to see on an ultrasound. Her sister had a head full of hair when she came out, and it appears that this one will too. Her size measured at 6 lbs 7 oz (+/- 1 lb).

Baby Ultrasound

May 21st, 2008 by Mommy

We had a scheduled ultrasound for the baby yesterday. Everything looked good for the baby and they told us that the baby weighs 7 oz. As of yesterday the baby was 18 weeks and 3 days, the baby measured at 17 weeks and 6 days. As the technician made all of her measurements it was just amazing to see all of the little parts of the baby. The most amazing part is the heart as it is pumping in and out. After all of the measurements were completed we were delighted to be told that the baby is a girl! We had our guesses, but it is so exciting to hear with finality what the baby is. Emily will be a great big sister for her little sister. Emily came to the ultrasound, but only made it long enough to hear that she was going have a sister and then wanted to play. She got to take a walk with Grammy and Granddaddy while we finished. The baby was very active during the ultrasound at it was so wonderful to see her move. Her favorite movements were to kick the placenta and put her hands over her face. She seemed to put both her hands and her arm into her mouth at different moments. At one point she waved at the ultrasound wand. It was so sweet. This should be the only ultrasound that we have for this baby unless they doctor orders another one. We will look forward to seeing her when she arrives in October.

We are going to have a girl!

She was very cooperative today, and moved around quite a bit. She even started to suck on her hand while we watched. It was also amazing to see how much development occurred during the past month.

It’s a… Baby!
Originally uploaded by Robby Edwards.

Last month, it was time to do the ultrasound and try to determine the baby’s gender. Unfortunately, the baby, which we’ve affectionately named Raspberry until we come up with a real name, was asleep and didn’t want to cooperate (by that, I mean wake up), so we have had to wait since then before we can try again. Our next attempt to discover the baby’s gender will be next Tuesday.
