Oh baby!

Today I had my "20 week" ultrasound. Everything went well. Some of you know that we are not finding out whether the baby is a boy or a girl. We have 2 of our 5 times and it was fun that way to. But since we have 2 of each, have everything we could possibly need we are going to wait and it will be a surprise! This has been fun too! I have to admit it was tempting when the tech said, "now, I am going to take some pictures of the bladder so if you don't want to know you might want to look away." But I was a "good" girl. I wouldn't peek at my Christmas presents so I am not going to peek at this one. It was a lot of fun looking at baby though. I feel a lot of movement with this little one and it was really funny to see what was going on while I was feeling it. There was one point where she was measuring the legs and the baby literally crossed it's feet! CUTE! Baby like to put "his" hands in his face too. (I only say his because I don't like calling the baby it!) This is the first time I have ever had a 3D ultra sound. The whole thing wasn't done this way which I am glad because personally I think they look creepy. No offence, but they do look like aliens and I seem to be able to see what is going on in the "old school" ultrasounds just fine. But she was trying to get a traditional side view of the face and this little wiggle worm wouldn't hold still! So she switched over to 3D and took these instead. She tried again after she took these and baby was still not cooperating. Funny! Baby was really still until she started prodding around down there. Then baby woke up and decided to dance, and wiggle. The scans didn't come out really great of these pictures but it is the best I can do so sorry if they are a bit blurry.

Here is a picture of baby's face with a hand up by the ear.

This one baby is hiding the face with his arm and the hand is up by the forehead in a fist.

Wow, you are good. Surprises make me anxious and I don't think I could go the whole time not knowing. My doc actually has an ultrasound machine in everyone of his exam rooms so you get one at every appointment, way too tempting not to look. Maybe if it was one time I could say no to the temptation, it would make the delivery even more exciting not knowing!! Good Luck with everything!

PS. I am glad things must be going well. Looks like you are on the down hill of the pregnancy. Time to countdown from here.

I don't know how you are going to wait, but I can understand that you are already prepared. That will be neat when the baby finally comes and you can find out what it is. Glad the ultrasound went well.
