4D UltraWOW

Yesterday I was able to have my 4d targeted ultrasound.  It is the ultrasound where they check all the organs, bone lengths, brain, etc. for the baby.  I was very excited!  Until now we haven't been able to get a good side profile, baby Owen had not been cooperating at all.  So I was hoping this time would be a success.  It was so fun to watch him swimming around in there and punching me- yes apparently most of the bumps and jumps I feel in there are from him punching me.  I was laughing so hard when I saw his little arms punching like he was a lil fetus boxer.  His legs were up by his head the entire time and his arms were for most of the time as well.  I was getting worried that we wouldn't be able to get a good face shot.  But at the end the ultrasound tech decided that she would do some tappety taps and maneuver that guy so we could get a clear view.  I told her to, "Show him who's boss" and that is what she did.  We got some amazing shots and I got a little teary, it being the first time I had seen his face and all.  What an amazing thing it is to be able to peek inside there and see our little man before he comes out.  I am glad to report that he is healthy and strong and growing fast!  He now weighs 1 LB 7 OZ and is measuring about a week big.  We can't wait to meet this little guy!

Same situation except he is grabbing his foot :)  You can see his little knee on the left.

From these pictures we have decided that he looks like his sister and we couldn't be more excited!

Then there's me, I am 23 weeks now and I have finally started to pop.  Check out that bump :)  I am feeling great and am no longer nauseous.  Now I will enjoy the time until I am huge, achy and uncomfortable... let's pray that I don't get as swollen as last time... so far so good. {knock on wood}

Sorry about the self portraits, it is hard to find a time where I am looking ok and there is someone around to take it... maybe I should train Lola how to take a picture ha ha


  1. I think that 4d ultrasound is cool. Ultrasound pictures use to really terrify me haha. Owen seriously looks identical to Lola in that profile one. How exciting!

  2. Woo Woo hot legs!!! And you're not lookin so bad yourself my dear:) I wasn't a fan of the 3D picks of Ruth cause it looked like she was being smuthered by a bag:(

  3. your bump- and baby- are adorable :))
