3D Baby

Last night, (as part of the Numom2b study that we participated in) we got a free 3D ultrasound of our baby girl. Sometimes I think the 3D looks a little creepylike a little baby clay monster. But I admit, as soon as we saw those cheeks and lips, we were completely charmed. Obviously, there's some distortion due to movement and whatever else is floating around in there, but isn't it so cool that they can take pics like this? IT'S OUR BABY'S FACE!

that's a little hand caressing the side of her face

After taking some measurements, the nurse told me that she is about 3.5 lbs. Wow. According to what I've been reading, babies are usually around 2.5 lbs at this stage of development. "A little bit on the bigger side," as the nurse put it.

I hope this means she'll come a little earlier than the proposed due date, but it might just mean that she'll be a big baby like her mama was.

So close, but yet so far. Can't I just have my baby NOW?

woohoo! I've been told all my babies are big. They told me Dane was "too big" and I had an ultrasound almost every two weeks the last 6 or 8 weeks of my pregnancy. I think Jacob was bigger too. Good luck with that! :) Hey, if I can push a head the size of Dane's out then you are good to go. seriously his head was and still is ENORMOUS.

p.s. this is NOT ryan ;)
