Third Glance At My Little One

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to have another ultrasound. I was a little nervous going in, because at my previous ultrasound they had found one kidney that was slightly enlarged. They wanted to recheck things at 28 weeks, just to make sure everythings was okay. Fortunately my doctor had told me that this happened fairly frequently, and that 9 times out of 10, it corrected itself before delivery.

I was happy to hear that the kidneys look fine now, and that my little sweet pea is thriving. But most of all I was happy to see this little guy's face. I just can't get over how wonderful these 3D images look. When the tech asked me if I had anymore questions at the end of the ultrasound I wanted to say "Can we just stay here for awhile and gaze at his profile?" Unfortunately I think she had better things to do.

Here are a couple of pics of my little guy. I've already had a few people say that he looks like Kyra. Isn't that amazing? He isn't even born yet, and we can get an idea of who he looks like!

Zachary had the kidney thing too. He had it all the way up until delivery, and they did an ultrasound the day after he was born and it had corrected itself. Glad to hear he is healthy! Good luck. Love the pictures!

This kid is TOTALLY Kyra's little brother. It's the nose...definitely the nose. What a cutie :)

Wow, that is SO cool how they do those! It must make you so excited to meet the little guy! Glad the ultrasound came back with good news.
