After our appointment, we did run down to the secret sonogram place to try to see Mary Audrey's face with a 4-D sonogram machine. We went a few weeks ago and she was not cooperative at all. She was very low, face down and would not move a muscle for anything.
This morning I didn't eat anything before we went to the dr hoping that would encourage MA to move around while we were getting the sonogram. Well, she did move around, just not her head. She was again, very low and face down. Only this time, she was actually moving her head side to side as if to say, "you are not getting a picture of my face if I have anything to do with it!" She did roll over and we could see her mouth moving and of course she was moving her arms, hands, legs, and feet. But she would never turn her head enough for us to get a blimpse of it. We will just have to wait to see her when she arrives. The technician did show us that she does have a little hair on her head so that will be interesting to see how thick it is. I asked the technician if she could approximate her current weight. After taking measurements, the technician calculated she weight 4+ lbs.
NEXT APPOINTMENT: August 11, 2008
Below are a few pictures from her sonogram today and two weeks ago. The first picture is to confirm her girl parts. I had a dream last night that she came out a boy so it scared me a little ... :) The second picture is her heartbeat ... it was 140 beats per minute today. The third picture is of one of her foot. And the last picture is a side view of her face. You can see one eye and part of her nose. That is as good as we could get!
