So yes today is technically the 14th......but oh well...
I was a bit busy yesterday and when I thought about this post it was well late into the night and my computer was already turned off...sorry.
But The feature for day 13 was going to be Baby Erickson....and it still is...there is only one small change in the schedule of things.
This countdown was to countdown the days till we found out Baby Ericksons gender...well Baby Erickson did not want to cooperate during the ultrasound and we were left with STILL not knowing if Baby Erickson is a Boy or Girl......I have no idea where this child gets its stubborn uncooperative behavior from....It could not possibly be its mother...nope not at all.
My midwife said that they typically dont do another ultrasound until around 32 weeks.
Thats 12 weeks away people....there was no way I could wait that long...I mean if I waited that long why not wait a few more and just find out when the babys born.....so I kindly asked/ demanded / begged my Midwife for another ultrasound, because I really cant wait that long.....so my midwife said that at my next visit in 4 weeks she could have an OB doctor come in and do a quick ultrasound to find out the babys gender!!! That made me happy. I was still bummed that we didnt find out that day....I had to call a bunch of people and let them know that we still didn't know. My mother thought I was playing a joke on her and didn't believe me at first when I called her.
It was amazing to see our baby for the first time. Since we are seeing a midwife and not an OB we didn't have a 1st trimester ultasound like most people get so this was our first look at Baby Erickson. I found it amazing to look at all the details of the baby on the monitor....its probably the nurse is me....but I loved seeing Baby Ericksons little stomach and kidneys and diaphram and bones. I really loved watching the babys heart work. It is amazing to see something like that.
Baby Erickson was not to happy about all the poking and prodding that the ulrasound tec was doing and was protesting the whole time by punching me. It was also fun to see Baby Erickson sucking on its hand for a moment....just to watch its little jaw working made me smile.
With out further ramblings here is Baby Erickson.
and our 3D picture with its hands up by its face
What do you think Baby Erickson is???
A Boy? or a Girl??
Guess we will find out in 4 weeks......fingers crossed.
