Pictures of Three

I had my ultrasound today, and things looked good, which is a huge relief. I wasn't that worried, but I think there are always some of those "what if" questions floating around in an expectant mom's brain.

So here are some pictures of little Three that may or may not be very obvious to you- it probably depends on how familiar you are with grainy x-rays. I went ahead and added a few extra captions on a couple of them.

First, a facial profile shot:

Next, a foot:

An almost whole body profile:

A torso profile shot, with the arm over the baby's face:

This one is another profile (there are a lot of those), but I added some labels as a little cheat-sheet. Unfortunately, Three had his (or her) hands in front of his face, so we couldn't get a good facial shot. Also, the heart is the black spot above the word "heart" in the picture.

We kept true to our word and did not find out the gender, but it's killing me that somebody out there (or probably 2 somebodies at this point- the ultrasound tech and the doctor I saw afterwards) know what we're having. Now I will have to resist the urge to ask at all future appointments for the doctor to reveal the gender to me. That's ok- the surprise will be worth the wait!

How exciting to see these pictures. You'll just have to choose boy and girl names and then decide once you meet your little bundle what his/her name should be. We wait in anticipation and excitement with you. the time will fly by.
