We had our 30 week prenatal appointment and ultrasound today. Our doctor (whom we didn't see last time) said she was going through withdrawals not seeing us (we've been blessed to see her every single time this pregnancy except for our last appointment)! We love her! I wish she could be our pediatrician, too, haha!!
I'm measuring right on track (up 18 pounds total--yikes!), and Baby Boy looks great!
He's measuring 3.3 pounds and is growing right on target.
He's in the 40th percentile, which is normal.
He's already in the right position (head down), so we're good to go there :)
We were treated to a long ultrasound, and she even got a couple of great shots for us to keep, including this 4D image (during the ultrasound, the 4D imaging allowed us to watch him suck and smack his lips!).
I know some people are having trouble "seeing" him, so here's my best explanation:
Most of the picture is of his face. It's really close. Tilt your head slightly to the right as you look at the picture. His nose is in the center with his two little nostrils. Below that, his lips (partially open). Above his nose, you can make out his closed eyes. It appears he's resting on something (uterus, I assume). I hope that helps!
I know he's ours, and I'm sure I'm incredibly partial, but I think he has THE. sweetest. face! Look at those lips! :D
That ultrasound was the coolest thing, and I'm a little sad it was our last one.
But I've only got 10 weeks to go before I get to meet our little man in person, so I think I can be patient!
Oh, and since she didn't mention it, I'm pretty sure I passed my glucose test! Yay!! I've been saying lots of "Praise God"s this week, and that's one more I can add to the list.
Have a marvelous week, y'all!
