Butterbean in 3 and 4D

Last night the husband and I went back to the private clinic where we originally had ultrasound pictures of Butterbean done in December.

We had decided to splurge on getting another dvd and loads more pictures, only this time in 3 and 4D. Since this might be our only baby, and we worked so hard to get them, why not? Butterbean is worth it.

So off we went last night, where the sex of the baby was confirmed without a doubt, but where the bean decided that beyond that, they weren't willing to be so cooperative. First the cord was around the face, then once we were poking at them to try and nudge them out of their little hiding spot, they put their hands up and that was it. No matter that I stood up and walked around, twisted, bent over, poked, begged, and prodded, that baby decided that they had had enough, and to hell with us.

The woman there is such a doll though, that she's letting us go back for another 1/2 hour session on Tuesday, just to try to get some better pictures. Free of course.

So here our a few pictures of our beloved miracle baby - who of course we think is the cutest thing since...well, ever.

The husband was very excited to see that the baby has my lips, and I was equally excited to see that they have his nose, instead of my little turned up one.

I'll leave you with those, have a warm and wonderful weekend!

Wow! I wish scans had been that good when we were having our kids!

I think you are both right, I can see a bit of each of you there!

Hi there, I read your blog all the time, I'm friends with Zig, your 3D pics are great, I have to say we had 3D scans of our twins when we had fetal assessments and now I put the picture beside their face and its unbelievable how alike they are with their pics.
Congrats to you

Jahooni - whoa! Slow down! Deep breath - no, there is only ONE baby in there. I absolutely promise.
Just different shots of the same Butterbean :)
And the boy or girl issue is still a secret, though we had confirmation the other day...
