A few days ago we attempted to take your grandparents to see our girl on the ultrasound. We set it up at a recreational 3D ultrasound place, because Erikas mom had been requesting to join, and we didn’t feel the hospital was an appropriate setting for her to attend.
We scooped them up early one Sunday morning, drove them down to the Seattle area, and excitedly settled in to see our baby on the big screen. However, squish, unfortunately, had plans of her own. The umbilical cord was right in front of her face so we were unable to capture a glimpse. The ultrasound tech had me get up and move around, drink some juice, and do some exercises to help move her in the womb, but none of those tactics seemed to work. In fact, our girl wouldn’t even lift a leg. Eventually she slightly moved her hand, but otherwise, nothing. She was passed out! We rescheduled and were on our way. Total bust.
A few days later we had an ultrasound my doctor had required. Because of my hypothyroidism, she wanted to be sure the baby is growing accordingly.
This ultrasound turned out to be amazingly awesome! The ultrasound tech switched from 2D to 3D and we were actually able to capture a little glimpse of our girl! We cannot believe her cheeks!! And I’m pretty sure she has Eri’s little chin! Such a cutie! We have our rescheduled 3D coming up on Tuesday that we are still excited for, but for now we are at peace with the tiny glimpse at what our girl looks like!
