The long awaited pictures....

I know, I am late with these but these are the ultrasound pictures from our last apt at Duke on the 17th. These were taken when I was @ 12.5 weeks with the bean...
The whole body of the baby.....
Level 4 image of the baby, which looks odd at this stage but you can see arms and legs...Here you can see the legs and one hand... and a verrrry "empty" crotch area... hummmmmBut here, maybe a white shadow in there... still too early to tell if it's a boy or girl...And this one is just a face shot of the baby We did have an appointment this week and the baby's heart rate was in the 160's and everything is going well. I am up 1.5 pounds on my scale here at the house so while I feel like I am getting large already, I hope this means that I follow my footsteps from Chayse and have very little weight gain. We won't go to the doctors again until the end of the month, at which time I will be 18 plus weeks so if the baby show us "it's stuff", we will know if it's boy or a girl! This will also be when we do organ scans. While Hope's heart condition, kidney issues, and renal failure were all attributed to the Down Syndrome, we are still praying for everything to look great with this baby's organs.

Aww, how sweet! I'm a sucker for these things every time. And wow, you can definitely tell this one and Miss Chayse are from the same clay...that last profile shot looked so much like her to me. Whew, now I'm on pins and needles waiting for the BIG reveal!

So thankful all is going well, and I cannot believe Chayse is standing already! Christiana is a month behind her and cannot even sit up well yet! Simply Amazing!!!

YEAH!!! I'm so happy to hear you and your family is doing well! Chayse is as cute as can be and is getting SO big! New little Burgess is cute as can be, I'm soooo happy for your positive news concerning him/her. Thanks for leaving the comment on my blog. I feel so out of sorts not being able to post very much. I'm working on the big update now.
