Kyle and I went to our 3D/4D ultrasound appointment last night, and it was pretty awesome! It’s crazy that they can even do this. She didn’t want to show us her face for the first half of the ultrasound, we were trying everything – poking at her, moving to my side, putting pillows under my hips, walking around, etc – she didn’t want to move! Finally we decided to try music, the Beatles to be exact, and she liked that! She started moving around and showing us her precious little face! She even opened her mouth and stuck her tongue out at us. We were very happy she decided to move. We got about 20 minutes of video and a bunch of pictures. Here are a few clips and some pictures.

We had another ultrasound today at 23 weeks. She is still a girl, so that’s good – they were right! She is looking good – growing big and strong just like she should. She is now about 1 pound 2 ounces and about a foot long! We were able to see most of her little organs in her tummy this time, as well as more of the brain that has been developing. She was sleep so we didn’t get to see her moving around too much, she had her little hands clenched in fists and her legs bent – she is taking up more and more room in there! Of course the moment I got back to work she woke up and started moving around in there – I was getting karate kicked all day long! It actually hurt a little by the end of the day, crazy girl!
Overall, she looked great! We go to our regular monthly appointment w/ the OB on Wednesday so we will get to hear her heartbeat again and see how much weight I’ve gained.
Here are some updated profile shots:
And here is the video if you are interested in seeing her in action:
We went in for another ultrasound on January 28th and we were able to have it recorded. Here is a video of our little girl! You may have no idea what you are looking at, but we already think she’s super cute!!
