Peek-a-Boo! We See You!

For my 36 week ultrasound this week, the whole family tagged along to sneak a peek at baby brother.  Allana was most excited since she has such vivid memories of viewing her baby sister for the first time five years ago.  “Remember how I knew it was a girl, Mommy?”


The girls giggled and laughed over the tiny 3-D image on the computer screens.


“He has our nose and Mommy’s lips!”


“We can see his boy parts!”




The ultrasound technician amplified his heartbeat for everyone to hear.  Emmalynn loved hearing and seeing his strong beating heart jump across the screen.  “Again!  Again!”  Emmalynn hollered out excitedly.



Although the scheduled ultrasound gave us a small sneak preview at Run DMT Baby #3, it also predicted the size of the baby.  Much to everyone’s disappointment except for me Thankfully, the U/S tech and my doctor predict under 8 pounds.  In fact, the doctor predicted around 7.5 (same birth weight as Emmalynn).



From the U/S, we learned that little baby brother has turned, but hasn’t dropped into position just yet.  The staff could also determine that my fluids and innards look good.  Apparently, the little guy is really happy in there.



But I think he knows he’s safe in there away from the loving cuddly arms clutches of his big sisters.



ETA: These photos were a collaborative family effort between Allan, Allana, Emmalynn and me.

    Because I had a pretty high risk pregnancy I had these ultrasounds so many times that I stopped counting. Twice a week towards the end. I was in that office so much I thought they’d start charging me rent!

    My kids are 17 months and 3 years so I never got the job of letting my older son go with me and see his sister, but what fun that would have been! I’m happy for you and you have a beautiful family!

    I found you via the Lady Bloggers Tea Party.

    First I have to say that what they say about pregnant woman being beautiful is true. I love that photo of you and the sisters are just adorable. Okay since this is week 36 is baby brother going to make his appearance soon? I would think. And have you named him yet? Have a great and safe holiday weekend.

    WooHooo! Congrats on your little boy (emphasis on little)! That’s wonderful news – and the girls look so proud! What a great thrill. I hope the last month goes quickly. Or that you can at least hang out in the A/C or poolside the whole time!

    great to meet you!

    How awesome that your girls were able to go in with you. I love that your little guy was covering the camera’s view of his face in that photo. Too cute! Can’t wait to see him. Have a great day Denise.
