20 week ultrasound...

We had our ultrasound BRIGHT and early today! 
I did NOT sleep at ALL last night so it was horrid waking up at the crack of dawn. I was supposed to have drank 32oz of water by 7am which did NOT happen since I finally rolled out of bed at 7:25! I tried to chug as fast as I possibly could and we hopped in the car off to see our little babe!
beyond tired this morning....
The ultrasound tech was NOT too thrilled that I did not drink my water early like I was supposed to...so she was a tad pissy! It all ended up to be fine by the end of the ultrasound because she could see everything she needed to see. I have NEVER had to drink a ton before...not sure why she is so anal but whatever. 

We got to see our little babe....The ultrasound was 3d/4d which we have never had before so that was REALLY cool!

He/she was moving like crazy!

Jordan thinks it is a boy because he/she was laying with its arms behind it's head...just like Vincent and Luke...I must say it was a little creepy how much this baby moved like the boys do while stretching!

We also got a DVD which is really cool to watch...if I knew how to upload it, I would but I have no idea...

We did not get that great of a shot of the profile but here is one of the babe waving HI!
Don't worry he/she has 5 fingers the thumb and pinky are hard to see here!!

I am so happy for a great ultrasound...
well we have not officially got the results but the tech said she did not see anything abnormal...
So, I would call it a SUCCESSFUL morning!

I might have to go back in because my placenta was a little low (had the same problem with the boys)...
But I don't care...it will be awesome to get another sneak peek at the babe...
Especially a 4d one! How awesome!!

That is all for now...
I cannot wait to meet him/her in +/- 20 weeks...

  2. Yay! Congrats on a great ultrasound. I'm so happy you didn't cave and find out the sex, it's so fun the day of!

  3. Yay!! What a cute little baby bean you have :) I cannot wait to see ours on Wednesday! I have to drink 32 oz of water too?? I didn't have to drink anything with Sophie's ultrasound so I'm not too thrilled about that!

    And how neat that you got the 3D/4D ultrasound. I think they do the same thing at my doc office but I'm not sure. Happy that all went well for you :) Congrats!

  4. Ok so when I was preggo I followed the instructions and drank all that water 2 hours ahead of time. Let me just say I almost peed my pants before they called me back. My tech laughed and said no one ever followed the rules and thankfully let me go pee as soon as she saw whatever she needed to see.

    How fun that you are waiting to find out the sex! I don't know if I could handle that, but I think it will make an amazing surprise at the birth!

  5. You didn't find out?! LOL I was so sure you'd give in haha!! Oh well, I'm excited to see the surprise along with you when he/she is born!!!

    Also: my first few ultrasounds with Archer, I didn't drink lots and the tech was SO PISSY too, yet with Nolan they didn't care and even told me that much water wasn't necessary. Guess it just depends on the tech?

  6. I drank the water like I was "supposed" to and when I got there the tech said it wasn't necessary. Really? Let's all get on the same page people!!

    Glad you had a GREAT ultrasound!! Dumb question....but how is 4d different than 3d?

  7. You look sooo good!!! I totally would have tried to see if I could tell what I was having!

    Love that you added a recipe tab!!

  8. Glad you had such a good ultrasound! I am always told not to drink before my ultrasounds because I have to have a vaginal one to check my cervix and then an abdominal one to check on the babies so that's been nice because like you, I always forget and chug at the last minute lol!

  9. Beautiful baby! And I'm rooting for it being a girl :)

  10. I can't wait till my 20 week ultrasound!! Next month! But I am totally finding out, in would drive myself INSANE otherwise haha :) hope to get together soon!
