Ultrasound Update

Just wanted to hop online and let you know that the ultrasound went well this morning. Thank you so much for your prayers!

Baby didn't cooperate quite like I hoped, but I suppose I should start getting used to the idea that I can't make it do what I want. Baby is tucked back pretty far so when I lay down on the ultrasound table it's at the "bottom of the pool" as the ultrasound tech likes to say which makes it a little harder to see. It's also facing my back so we got to see lots of images of the spine but not so many of its face today. Anyway, we tried a few different things and I think she was pleased with the heart images she was able to get by the end of it and said that the heart looks healthy. The doctors office was pretty slow so she also took a look at the baby overall and reaffirmed that everything is looking good. Thank the Lord!

Here's a profile shot from this morning...

That's a pretty big cranium this kid is sporting! :) Ultrasound pictures are so weird, but since I can't look inside and see what's going on, I'll take whatever imaging technology is available!

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139:13-16
