Yesterday was our growth ultrasound and we got to see our “chunky” baby (at least that’s how the u/s tech put it, because it looks like Baby has chubby little cheeks!). Baby is measuring about 1 week small, and the tech estimated Baby’s weight to be about 3 lbs 9 oz. I guess we’ve got some growing to do!! Baby is positioned so that its head is down, its rump is up under my right ribs, and its legs are curved around to my left ribs. Baby also has one arm up near its head, the other down by its side. At least now we have an idea of what each protrusion is!
When the tech was looking at Baby’s face, she zoomed in and showed us that Baby was moving its little tongue in and out of its mouth, like it was practicing sucking. Baby also had a grouchy look on its face, probably because someone was poking it with an ultrasound wand. “Quit waking me up, Momma. Just let me go back to sleep!” Here are the ultrasound pics, some of them with my comments in green to clarify what we’re looking at. The sonograms are a bit confusing!
One more thing: this time we’re giving a shout out to our friends Travis, Emily and Macie. They bought us the Fisher Price Rainforest Bouncer chair! Apparently their daughter Macie just loved it 🙂 Thank you!!!
