Today we got a glimpse of our Mayby!
(view of the profile..baby is looking up towards the top of the photo)
This was our third ultrasound and definitely the most exciting as baby is starting to resemble a real-live human!
We saw four limbs kicking peacefully around and a little head that kept turning towards us. They say this week that baby is now sensitive to light, so maybe that is why?
I practically begged the tech to give us a little preview of what was happening down there, but she refused to hazard a guess. 🙁 Mayby wasn’t at a good angle for me to see much either. But I guess we will get a special Christmas Eve surprise as we go in for our gender ultrasound then. Stay tuned!
Also, met with my new doctor today and I give her two big thumbs up. The hospital also seems much more geared towards unmedicated birth and the staff didn’t look at me like I was crazy when I told them that is what I wanted. As long as baby cooperates, we are good to go!
Oh, sweet Mayby, how we long to attach a face, a form, and a name to you. We have personified you as much as we can and now the exciting wait begins. Each month we grow a little closer to you, both physically and emotionally. You are making sure that I know you are there too. I am starting to feel the tiniest kicks and jabs that are a sweet reminder of your presence. I don’t know what the future holds for us, but the thought of adding you to our family makes it feel so much more like a family. Suddenly Christmas traditions (among many other things) have taken on a whole new meaning. Even though you are not yet here in person, that is a wonderful gift you have given us this year.
We will see you in 5.5 months! Keep growing!
