We had our ultrasound yesterday! I was so excited all day, telling Ryan practically every five minutes, "I can't wait to meet our baby!"
I'll admit that before I had a little baby growing inside of me, other people's ultrasound pictures didn't mean a whole lot. In fact, it's possible that I thought the pictures looked a little weird and that I could never really tell what I was looking at anyway. Just possible. ;)
Nonetheless, here are our pictures of Baby!
This is the cute little profile! For a while the baby had it's mouth wide open, as if it were yawning. So cute!
And this is a picture of one of the feet.
The technician said everything looked good and healthy to her and confirmed our due date (Aug 15) as right on track. I decided that our baby didn't particularly like the prodding, because he or she was so wiggly the whole time! (Not exactly cooperating for the picture taking...Maybe we have another young Rachel on our hands!)
So in case you haven't guessed from this post, we didn't find out the baby's gender. We love talking and imagining the baby as either a boy or a girl, and I think we just didn't want to give up that suspense! If either of us had a preference, I would have wanted to find out, but we're both just so eager to welcome the baby into the family that it doesn't matter to us what it is!
And one last thing - I think my favorite part of the ultrasound was just being told exactly how the baby was positioned at that moment in my tummy. Knowing where it's head and feet were made it all feel so real!
