Ultrasound Update

This is the head looking at you and his/her arm on top.

Waving hello:

The tech said the baby is sticking out his/her tongue here:

And here s/he is sucking her thumb! (it was amazing to see on the screen):

We had our ultrasound yesterday and it was so great! It seemed like the tech had to look for a long time, so we really got a good look at the baby. S/he is VERY active - it took the tech forever to get some of the views she needed b/c the baby kept flipping around. And get this - we couldn't have found out the sex even if we wanted to. The tech said she couldn't get a good look. I guess that really worked out for us! And size-wise, everything looks really good. The baby actually measured a little bit ahead of schedule. My doctor said she is still going to order another u/s for 6 weeks from now, just to monitor the size, but she thought everything was progressing nicely. And I gained a TON of weight! (This is a good thing b/c I had yet to gain any from my already low weight after being sick this summer). I am feeling really good and things seem to be great. Yeah!

Ed also had a few funny comments to make during the appts. The doc was talking about a woman who had just been in and spent the whole time crying b/c she was having a third boy. She kept saying "and I'll never get to help pick out a prom dress." So Ed said, "well, you never know, he could go in drag - it is San Francisco after all!" Ha, ha.

On a Samuel note, I think he must be going through a growth spurt b/c he is sleeping like a madman. He is going 13+ hours at night and taking really long naps. Ed is waking him up in the mornings b/c it gets so late. Let him sleep or no? I'm torn!

Oh, how sweet! I can't wait to hold this new, little one. But I think Samuel will be the one sticking out his tongue!

LOVE the thumb-sucking picture - that is AWESOME! As for wake or sleep - I say let him sleep! Enjoy the rest, it won't last long.

Super sweet!
And yes, let him rest...I agree with Krista. Let him grow big and healthy! But if you do wake him up it sounds like he is getting great naps too!
