Carleigh's Ultrasound Videos

On February 11th last year Anthony and I got a 3D/4D Ultrasound done so that we could see our daughter together. It was such a wonderful experience. I do remember smiling the entire time because it was so amazing to see her on the screen moving and sucking on her fist. One of the first things I noticed about her was her chubby cheeks. Just like her sister!

I haven't posted these until now because it was only recently that I converted the file type so that I could upload it (had to separate into two different videos too). It was amazing for me to watch it because it was her alive. To see the little hands and feet I held move. To see the lips that I kissed open and close. This is the closest I got to meeting her alive face to face. It's so moving to me and I just wanted to share.

This is the little girl I love so deeply.

It's really hard to watch that. I am so glad that you are able to have real footage of Carleigh.

If I new then, what I know now, I would of paid anything to have a ultrasound video taped of Isaiah.

The tears are flowing. Thank you for sharing this. How beautiful. David and I had decided not to do a 3D ultrasound because we were trying to save money. Of course now I would give anything to have that. I'm so glad you have this beautiful and lovely memory of sweet Carleigh.

That's awesome that you have these to look at. You're right it is amazing to be able to see her alive and moving. I didn't realize how precious that would be until now.

That is fascinating!!! I'm so glad you have them.

We had our one and only ultrasound with Jeffrey (thanks to my age), and I'm SO glad we have it.

You never know what you'll be thankful for :)

Holly, what a wonderful way to look at her ultrasounds. I guess it never occured to me about seeing her alive there. Brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. She is so beautiful.

What a darling and BUSY little girl! I'm so thankful that you have these precious videos! The womb isn't exactly a "secret place" anymore because God is allowing us a view into the place where He "knits" us together.

Thank you for absolutely honoring your daughters' lives. You're a marvelous mother. God thinks of you as often as you think of your girls.

Psalm 139: 13-18 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.

How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!

Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you.

She is just so very sweet and lovely, and I'm so glad that you find such solace in them. I haven't been able to watch Maddie's ultrasound, but it warms me to know that we have it. Carleigh is so beautiful.

Heather said...
