After our Ultrasound, we got a CD that has 68 pictures on it and a couple of videos (of the heart beating, Little One moving, etc.). It is amazing! BUT, I don't think I can get the pictures off to post here. My husband may be able to figure this out because he is a technological genius. I, however, am not. So, until you see us (we are carrying around the nine printed pictures given us at the ultrasound), we may not be able to share pictures of Little One with you.
I can, though, tell you about them. There is an amazing picture of Little One's perfect feet! I LOVE it. And there is a picture of Little One making a fist with the thumb sticking out. Jory swears our baby is giving him the Gig 'Em sign! There is one good full body shot and lots of profile pictures. Jory swears he can tell that Little One has my nose! (It turns up a little at the end and he believes Little One's does, too.)
As I said yesterday, all was well. Little One is in the 85th percentile for growth and appears perfectly healthy. All bones and organs are accounted for. The heartbeat is 156 bpm. This hasn't changed over the several visits we have had. The techinician was able to tell the gender, but since we didn't want to know it was not written down anywhere. She said by the end of the day yesterday she would have done many ultrasounds and would have no recollection of Little One. SO, no one knows whether it's a boy or a girl! (Except God and, apparently, my Dad the psychic.)
The doctor DID tell me not to sleep on my back. She actually advised me to get a body pillow to prevent me from rolling flat during the night.
I think that's it. We are leaving for Florida tomorrow - YAY! - and will not be back until Monday, so you won't hear from us for a few days. The day we return I will be twenty weeks - offically halfway through pregnancy! I can't believe it!
