Carleigh's 3D Ultrasound

Last night was our 3D/4D ultrasound at Envision Imaging in Columbus. Boy, was the wind ever blowing! It was pretty rainy in certain sections of our drive too. Eerily dark. We got there safe and sound and even early. We made sure we left a little early because of the weather and in case traffic was slow because of any accidents. I filled out a little questionnaire once we got there. My parents and sister got there before us and Kyndra was excited to see them. She went right to grandma. We made sure we brought food, drink, and her baby doll to keep her entertained during the scan. They took us back and got us set up and while they were doing that Anthony's family came and then we got started! Kyndra ended up doing great during it. It was so funny because she would make cute little noises at exactly the right time during the ultrasound to where it look like she was reacting to what she saw on the screen, but really she was just playing with toys they had in the room.

We were able to see Carleigh's face pretty well the whole time, which was so great! I'm so glad she decided to cooperate for this ultrasound. Of course, she had her hands up by her face pretty much the whole time. She really likes to keep them there. We were able to see her open her mouth and stick out her tongue and also try to suck on her fist and her thumb. It was so sweet! We were able to get a better idea of exactly what her defect looks like and that really helps. It's so different with every baby. We noticed right away, and the technologist too, that she has such chubby cheeks-just like Kyndra when she was born! It made me laugh. Anthony and I were very grateful to my coworkers who generously gave money that we used for our ultrasound. It was such a nice surprise!!

Those 3D pictures are incredible! So much easier to picture what they look like than the silhouette type of ultrasound. I agree with Betty, the third picture is my favorite too.
