The love of our lives! *Click to make the pictures larger.* Our ultrasound tech apparently was super busy as she barely had time to explain things and the viewing only lasted 2 1/2 minutes. The good things are: we have two arms with hands, two legs with feet, a brain, a set of voluptuous lips (from his mother), and a very active baby overall (from his daddy--neither of them could sit still throughout the ultrasound- ha!). Andrew was so sweet watching the ultrasound though. He was like a kid in a candy store--so excited to see everything. I just wish it had lasted longer!
Next office visit: Valentine's Day. Sex determination day: February 28th! Boy that day can't come quickly enough. We get to look at the heart that day to make sure all four chambers are fully formed, the spine to rule out a major case of spina bifida, and the brain. I'm contemplating whether to get the testing done at the next appt that tests for Down's Syndrome. I mean, if it's positive and we seek further testing and still get a positive, what are we going to do? Get prepared, I guess. The Lord has blessed us with this child and there's nothing that would cause us to get rid of him/her. Any moms out there have this done? What were your thoughts?
Work starts up again tonight *sigh*. That means I need to get in a nap since I woke up at 5:30 this morning. Hope you all have as awesome of a day as Andrew and I had!
