For my 36 week ultrasound this week, the whole family tagged along to sneak a peek at baby brother. Allana was most excited since she has such vivid memories of viewing her baby sister for the first time five years ago. “Remember how I knew it was a girl, Mommy?”
The girls giggled and laughed over the tiny 3-D image on the computer screens.
“He has our nose and Mommy’s lips!”
“We can see his boy parts!”
The ultrasound technician amplified his heartbeat for everyone to hear. Emmalynn loved hearing and seeing his strong beating heart jump across the screen. “Again! Again!” Emmalynn hollered out excitedly.
Although the scheduled ultrasound gave us a small sneak preview at Run DMT Baby #3, it also predicted the size of the baby. Much to everyone’s disappointment except for me Thankfully, the U/S tech and my doctor predict under 8 pounds. In fact, the doctor predicted around 7.5 (same birth weight as Emmalynn).
From the U/S, we learned that little baby brother has turned, but hasn’t dropped into position just yet. The staff could also determine that my fluids and innards look good. Apparently, the little guy is really happy in there.
But I think he knows he’s safe in there away from the loving cuddly arms clutches of his big sisters.
ETA: These photos were a collaborative family effort between Allan, Allana, Emmalynn and me.
