Baby Face

I had another ultrasound yesterday. The clinic was very quiet and I got in right away. The woman doing the ultrasound was very helpful and lovely. The official point of the ultrasound was to check that nothing was really happening due to all the crazy Braxton Hicks contractions I have, and all looks well at this point.
The bonus then is to see the baby again. Still no 'clear view' of the 'area', but the woman agreed that it looks like a girl from what she could see. A nice modest girl! Ha. She said there would be more hardware visible if it were a boy. So we're sticking to our original 'most likely, probably' a girl theory!
A suprise for me though, was seeing the baby's face in 4D. I've seem pictures of other people's ultrasounds, but we've never seen ours like this. You can really see what your little person looks like. It was amazing. Pretty much just a profile, but it was so striking I was quite shocked. I mean, I know there is a little growing person in there, I just didn't expect to see such a fully developed, already there...PERSON.

I can't stop looking at her beautiful little face...

We had the 4D of W two weeks before he was born and he looked exactly like the ultrasound pic. When I saw that my intuition that he was a boy was confirmed, I just knew.
Enjoy dreaming about your precious she's just that much more real.

I snuck here off Mahvelous's link to your page. Thought I'd chime in agreement about how wonderful ultrasound pictures can be. I loved every moment of my pregnancy; including the cruddy moments. i waited so long to have a baby, and i wanted one so desperately!

What an amazing image to carry around in your heart with you. I love the idea of knowing her face before she is even born.
