we had our 4D ultrasound this morning. sylvie did NOT want to cooperate. she had half of her face snuggled into the placenta the whole time. we never did get a shot of her entire face, but we got enough partial face pictures to piece it all together. we saw enough to know that she has super chubby cheeks, really long fingers, and a full head of hair! i suspected our girl would have some hair. travis was born with a full head of thick, black hair. i am also happy to report that she has my lips, travis’ nose, and an adorable little chin.
we also verified that she is DEFINITELY a girl. phew! all-in-all, even though she was uncooperative, i’m still extremely glad that we did it. it was amazing to see her moving around in there, playing, and stretching. we got to see some of her personality for the first time, which was incredible. i would highly recommend doing an elective 4D scan if your health care providers don’t have the option. i’m also glad we waited until 34 weeks to do it. she had an adorable amount of baby fat to look at!
we’re about to head out to dinner with my parents. i hope everyone enjoys their weekend!
