Friday was Peanut's latest sonogram - the big one, the whole shazamm, the exciting moment. Live, in 3 and 4D, was Peanut.
S/he wasn't very cooperative, with his/her hand and arm always across his/her face and mouth. The US Tech tried to shake Peanut up a little, but right after he would move his arm and she would try to get the shot, he would move it right back. Stubborn little bugger.
Also, to complicate things, when I would lie on my back for more than 2 or 3 minutes, my toes would start to tingle, my calves ache and my head start to swim from lightheadedness. In that position, Peanut was cutting off my circulation. So, I was on my side for most of the sonogram, which was much more comfortable, but much less conducive to getting good pictures.
The best pictures we got were when I sucked it up, laid on my back, tried to get as much air as possible and waited until I was almost nauseous and passing out before telling the US Tech that I needed to move. I may have been miserable, but I got some good pictures!
S/he is measuring 3 lbs, 8 ounces. At his 3/4D sonogram, Bjorn measured 3 lbs, 9 ounces. Peanut's appointment was on 30 weeks, 4 days. Bjorn's was on. . . . 30 weeks, 4 days.
The weirdest is how alike they look. Same big cheeks. Same pouty Angelina-Jolie lips. Same smushed nose. Or do all babies look alike in the womb?
