Hi all! It’s been a while!
In the long long time that I’ve been gone, I’ve been up to quite a bit that I can’t wait to fill you guys in on. First of which… WE GOT TO SEE OUR DAUGHTER!
Colt and I aren’t necessarily the patient type when it comes to baby girl, so we booked a very special ultrasound appointment at 27 weeks. Now at that time, baby’s fat is starting to develop and spread so we got a good peak into what she is going to look like when she’s here!
Our appointment included 15 minutes of 3D/4D scan and a free HD Live scan where we got to listen to her little heart and take home pictures and a video of the entire appointment.
We were taken into a dimly lit room with essential oils and- guys this would’ve been so fun if COVID wasn’t around- a bunch of recliners set up like a mini movie theater for family and friends to watch too! I had been nervous the whole morning because to me it was the next best thing to really meeting her, but as soon as I got in there I was so calm.
Our appointment coincidentally lined up with her nap time, so she was out cold the entire time, but something about that was so special. We got to see how she likes to sleep with her hands up by her face (good luck to us trying to swaddle her) and even got to see her smile while she was dreaming.
I really do recommend getting these ultrasounds done for anyone who it antsy like us and is dying to see their baby. I know there’s a lot of debate about whether you should or shouldn’t get ultrasounds done when they aren’t medically necessary, but it was so worth it to us and we can’t wait to show her these pictures and videos when she’s older!
