Friday I had my 35 week appointment scheduled, and I was finally going to get an ultrasound! I haven't seen baby girl since our 18 week appointment. I can't tell you how anxious I was to see her and hear that everything was fine. I was also so curious to get an estimate of her size. Well imagine my pregnant disappointment when I arrived at my doctor's office only to find that the office was closed due to an emergency! I was crushed. I huffed and puffed and waddled my way back to the car determined to find a way to see her. I whipped out my phone and asked Siri to call A Baby Visit - a place in San Diego that does 3D ultrasounds. They were able to get us in that evening :-)
The first thing I asked the tech to check was that she was still a girl haha. I have had this fear that our gender ultrasound was incorrect and so I haven't washed any of the clothes we've received "just in case". I couldn't have been giddier to learn that she is indeed still a girl. The tech told us that she has a TON of hair (which really excites me) and we couldn't believe how chubby her cheeks are already. They did all the measurements and told us that she is currently weighing 6 pounds 9 ounces! That is how much Brandon weighed when he was BORN. If that is actually how big she is already, I need to prepare to have a very large baby girl.
We had a hard time getting a clear shot of her face because she was nestled up by my placenta, and stubbornly refused to move. Even though we poked and prodded her the entire time. These were the clearest shots we could get.
And my personal favorite, seeing her frowny face when we kept poking my stomach trying to get her to turn her head:
I didn't think it was possible for us to be any more excited to meet this little one, but I was wrong!!
