Today, we took our kids along for a very cool experience. We had our first 3D ultrasound (see pictures below). It was a small splurge (around $100), but we hadn’t ever had a chance to have one of these. It took around 20 minutes or so, and they gave us a CD with a bunch of pictures, as well as a DVD with video and some audio of the baby’s heartbeat.
Our baby girl still appears to be very healthy. In fact, she looks huge to us! My wife’s “tummy” is bigger than she has ever been at this stage in the pregnancy, which probably doesn’t sound all that alarming until you realize that two of our babies were 9-6 and 9-9 (Aleah was our smallest, at a robust 8-1). Frankly, I wouldn’t be surprised if this is our first 10+ pound baby (hear that, Greg Nino?). Time will tell, I suppose.
Here’s a picture that I took of Pam yesterday:
Needless to say, no one has any qualms about asking our due date anymore!
By the way, I don’t want to come across as though I am asking for baby gifts, so just send money if you feel led to do so. 🙂 I am kidding, of course. However, some of you did ask about baby “stuff”. If you have any interest in this, we are registered at Target now, and it should be under my name and/or Pam’s. Thanks!
Now, on to the cool baby pictures! I actually stole these from Pam’s blog tonight. I’m sure she won’t mind. 😉
Happy Baby Grin, “Hi, Mom and Dad!” – this is the clearest one to illustrate that she shares my personality:
