David surprised me this morning with an appointment at a 3D/4D ultrasound place. When I kept guessing where we were going while headed away from Boulder on highway 36, he said “maybe we aren’t going someWHERE, maybe we are going to see someONE” and then I got it and started crying — today we were going to really see our baby! As I was filling out my paper work in the waiting room and thinking what an awesome husband I have, in walk my mom and dad to join us for the ultrasound – so then I had to start crying again. It was very exciting and my husband is beyond thoughtful.
I am amazed at the technology that does this. The 3D is obvious, but I didn’t know what 4D meant – it is the 3D plus motion, so it is like watching the baby move around on video. The ultrasound takes 3D pictures 18 times a second, so you actually get to see the baby’s movement. He yawned, wiggled, sucked his thumb, blinked (we only got to see open eyes for a split second), and blew me a kiss – OK, maybe not that last one.
Eyes opening up a little bit
Starting to smile
Count em – 5 fingers
…And 5 toes!
I just don’t know how I’m supposed to wait 2 more months!
Thank you so much David, I adore you :)
