flipped - flopped

How exciting was yesterday's appointment!?!?!?!

We got to have our third and final ultrasound, and it was just amazing!!! I will try to post a picture later, the one I scanned in this morning you can't see anything!

Because the baby is much bigger now than at our last u/s it was hard to see things at first, but once you get the image - you can see it very easily! Baby has flipped into birthing position, which I am very happy about!

He/she is a thumb sucker! Baby was sleeping for most of the ultrasound, we could see the eyes flutter from REM sleep the dr. said. (I think I got winked at, but who do you believe?!) We also got a good foot shot, much-much bigger than 10 weeks ago! When the dr. did various measurments he said that the femer measured a little long, so maybe we will have a long baby (like it's daddy!) Also measured the head, seems so big already - now I am scared!

Baby weighs about 3.6 lbs now, seems big to me! If I got full term that would put baby around 8 lbs. But - there is a chance I could be going we will see what life brings us!

We got to hear the heartbeat, that is always fun! I think I could listen to that for hours. I start going back every two weeks, for the next two apointments. Then, I am every week! This will make time go so quickly - hard to imagine but in 7 weeks or so, this little guy/girl could be here.

Start placing your bets...when and what?!?!!!!!
