I can honestly say I have been looking forward to our 32 week ultrasound since I got pregnant. With the awesome technology they have these days, you can get an amazing peek inside the womb. My friend Jess's 3D photo looked so much like her baby when he came out, it was crazy! So I was pumped! First, when we got to the ultrasound they checked on her growth. She is right on track, praise God! They measured her little bones and her head and she is measuring perfect for how far along I am. She clocked in at 4.3 pounds, which means, if she gained the projected 1/2 pound each week for the rest of the pregnancy she will be a little over 8 pounds...BUT could be up to 9! Yikes! I knew we would have a big baby! Josh and I were both almost 9 pounders!
So now comes the 3D part!! All morning, she is moving and swimming around in there, so I am thinking...ok good, if she is not in a good position when we get there we will be able to move her so we could see her little face. Well, the car ride to the doctor must have put her to sleep...of course!! They grab a different tool and try to get a 3D picture...but... she is out cold...and not in a great position to see her face.
She is already in position for birth. Head down, back up. So the tech tried to get a side view of her face, which was visible, BUT the umbilical cord was right in front of her lips. Sad! I was so disappointed!! I almost cried! I wanted to see her SO badly. So the tech leaves and the specialist comes in, like they normally do. Josh and I ask her to try again!! She does, and works really hard to get us one pretty good picture! Now, the cord is still in front of her lips and it is a side view, but you can kind of see what her little face will look like.
I honestly can not stop staring at this picture. It's amazing. She is amazing. God is amazing! It blows my mind that this little life is growing inside of me. It's truly a miracle!
All that being said...holy crap man...she looks just like JOSH to me!! Every time I look at the first picture I giggle a little because I think she looks just like him! Now the picture is a little distorted because of the cord and the side angle, so in this first picture her eyes look very separated which is totally Josh!! But the second picture they look closer, like mine!! Still, to me I just see mostly Josh! I told him I was a little jealous that she looks like him...and he just laughs! Ha! Well, we will get to see in real life soon enough! Just 8 weeks left!!
Who do you guys think she looks like?
