Our growing, shy boy

By Margo
36 weeks, 3 days

Several weeks back, Jed and I had a 3D/4D ultrasound appointment. I was pretty excited, because I’d seen several full-faced examples emblazoned on the brochure and a couple of pretty successful videos on youtube. I knew that sort of result wasn’t guaranteed, though. The one bit of reassurance in their “small type” was that if baby wasn’t in a suitable position, we could come back later for no additional charge and try again.

And try again we would do, since during our first visit, Grembaby Boy was in the transverse position (side to side, all curled up in a ball, rather than up and down). We got a decent look at the little fellow, though. What a heart-breaker.

Two days after that first visit, we had an adventure/dry-run/impromptu tour of the hospital, when I thought something was amiss… Fortunately, all was well! It was that night, amidst all the tests and checks, that we found out that Grembaby’s little noggin had found its way downward. (Which is probably why things had felt unusual in the first place!)

Our second shot at the 3D/4D ultrasound was scheduled for 7/31. It was perfect timing since my mom would be coming into town that night for the weekend. I hadn’t seen her since last summer, so it was a fun, teary reunion! Mom saw the belly in all its glory.

Meanwhile, we crossed our fingers that baby was in a good spot. Sure enough, his head was down, but he still had the silly little habit of being all curled up. In our ten-minute session, he moved his hand out of his face maybe once. Silly little guy. So shy! It was really fun to see him again and say hello, though!

    At this point, I’ll say he looks like Jed. Very cool stuff!

    Yes, his eyes are definitely Jed’s. But see that look of utter concentration? All me. And he’s covering his mouth, which I think will look like mine. (It’s slightly more visible in the top photos.)
