3D Sonogram Day

Today I had my 3D sonogram. I paid for this because I have NO good pictures for a baby book. Here is one of the pictures.

What the hell is that, you ask? I will explain. Evidently I have a very stubborn daughter. She buried herself in the placenta and covered her face with her hand. They put an electric buzzer on my belly, I rolled over, I jumped around, drank juice and did lunges. She. Gave. Me. The. Finger.

This is SOOOOO my kid. As for this shit-ass picture I am sharing? Well, that object in the middle is her arm (to the left is her face). At the end of which, is the hand which - gave. me. the. finger.

Sweet angel girl. We could see that she is FOR SURE a girl. Perhaps she is bitter that she still does not have a name?

Well they are not supposed to do measurements but I asked for some off-the-record numbers. Currently she is about 3.5 pounds.

The lady asked me my due date again. I said October 24th. She said "you're sure?" So I knew that she was getting a different date. Technically she is not supposed to say but since I will not be sharing info with my doc or taking it to the bank she told me the due date she was getting. October 14th. 10 days earlier!! That throws a bit of a wrench in the plans but it is workable. We will see. She comes when she comes and then I really will have to have a name. There are about 5 on the list but no decisions made.

So next week I have to leave work early (1st week back) and drive 30 minutes to attempt another sonogram. I hope she cooperates or she will have a sad looking baby book so far.

um, I think she is saying Leave me alone! lol.
I am not a morning person either, so I am right there with her.

What do you mean you don't have a name? I thought we agreed on Crystal? :)

I also have a very stubborn little girl bean in me. She is not very cooperative at ultra sounds. She usually puts her hand in front of the body part that the doctor is trying to analyze. Fingers crossed for next week.

Oh I am laughing so hard. That is hilarious. I go for mine this Saturday with the kiddos, mom, and brother, and of coarse DH. Hope baby Z is not as stubborn. Wish you luck with the next u/s. This is still a funny story to tell her when she gets older.

Camera shy already! Poor thing. ;)

Love the picture, even though it's not a 'good' one. The fact that you can 'see' that little wonder growing inside you is very special.

Awe, sorry you're girl is not cooperating!
As for your due date - first babies usually run a bit late, so I wouldn't fret too much about the due date. My first was 2 WEEKS LATE!!! I was ready to reach in and pull her out myself by then, lol!

Perhaps it's just her index finger?

Hopefully you'll have a name soon. I think it would be cool if you delivered at the earlier date though. I know a lot of women who delivered late and it drove them crazy, lol.

So excited for you!!! She will be here before you know it!! Yeah!!!

LOL-Awesome! She has a personality already!

You'll come up with a great name. We didn't find out the sex of either of our boys. Two days before I went into labor with Owl I told the Hubs, this is a boy he is waiting to come out because we don't have a name. We picked it Thursday night & I had him Saturday (Midnight-technically Sunday.)I hear Shayla is a nice name. ;)
