After many attempts, we got a good shot of his profile and a portion of his face. It's not a lot, but I can tell he has started to fill out. His cute little lips and cheeks seem fuller than they did before. We didn't get a picture of it, but it was amazing to see his long limbs - definitely takes after Ryan there - all folded up. He was folded in half so his ankles were up by his head. It was very cool to see, although the pictures don't do it justice at all, but I will share them anyway!
|6 weeks - my mother in law donned him with the nickname "Peanut" before we knew whether he was a boy or a girl. He does kind of resemble a peanut here, doesn't he??|
|17 weeks. Yes, he resembles an alien here. You can see how bony he is still this early on.|
|17 weeks - still painfully bony to behold (the technician assured us it was completely normal). You can see his torso and rib cage, his little bum, and his legs folded across each other.|
|17 weeks - his face. He was posing wonderfully that day.|
|23 weeks - his profile. You can see he had his face up against the placenta. He was moving a lot in this shot, throwing his head back and stretching out as much as he could, but still didn't quite move enough to get a shot of his face.|
|23 weeks - the best shot we were able to get of his face. I wasn't sure what I was looking at until the tech explained it to me. See how his face has filled out more. His lips are so cute!|
We may actually be getting one more sonogram, but I don't think it will be the 4D one. A school in Temple does free sonograms and we might go get one more there.
I also did a glucose test yesterday morning to check for gestational diabetes. Got the results back today - all is well and normal - yay!
