On Thursday my sis let me tag along for her 3D ultrasound appointment. Let me just say...it was pretty freakin cool.My sis has had a couple other ultrasounds but here's my first look at Baby T's little face. Isn't she cute? Okay... I know she looks kind of like an alien. But she's a cute alien. She's looking at you sideways here. And that's her little arm underneath her head.While we were looking at this image we watched her turn sideways and give us a profile shot. I didn't react fast enough to photograph it. I was too enraptured by seeing her sweet little button nose. Then she started opening and closing her little lips. The tech said she was probably drinking. It was amazing to watch. We also have absolute total and complete confirmation that Baby T is definitely a girl. No doubts now.
At 33 weeks, she was really too far along to get clear pics with the 3D. Carla's appointment was scheduled awhile back and the office had canceled it twice already. Bummer. But you can still see a face on that screen.
The tech said that ideally it's better to have the 3D between week 28 and 31. That way the baby is just floating around in there and you can see it more clearly. Unfortunately, Baby T is bigger now so she's really squooshed in. Which is why she has this "face pressed against the glass" look.
Then we saw her scoot her little hand up and start sucking her fingers. Can you believe that? Is that not just the most fantastic thing ever? I mean, that you can see this little person actually inside there moving around.
My sister has started a poll on her blog to help her choose a name for the newest little T. Click here and vote for your favorite. I'm interested to see what you all think. I bet I can guess which one Sandra will pick. LOL! And of course, Julie would pick the name "Tess". How did I forget that? Here's my 3 word pic since Kim called me out. LOL! Maryellen recently posted on her blog about this photo editing site. I took her advice. I absolutely love it. So easy to use and it's free! I highly recommend it. Thanks for the suggestion, Mar.
