3D Ultrasound of our Lil' Baby Girl!!

We just got back from doing a 3D ultrasound for our lil' baby girl. Yup, that's right! They confirmed it, IT'S A GIRL! YEA!!

It's sad that before I could even get onto the bed, I was asking if they would be able to see any bowl obstruction. They said that they are not allowed to do anything like that, b/c they are not doctors and they could get sued. I guess we'll just have to wait until we get our Level 2 ultrasound around 35 weeks.

We had so much fun seeing our baby girl wiggle around and kick and smile! She actually looks a lot like her brother! Lil' Chris enjoyed it at first, he kept saying "Baby!" But then he started to get fussy. Daddy had to take him for a walk a couple of times. The ladies there were so nice! I told them about the CF possibility and how Lil' Chris has it, and they both said that they would pray for both of them. The one lady actually washed a lil' toy so Lil' Chris could play with it, b/c he was being fussy! I couldn't believe it! She washed it first!! That was so nice of her. She seemed to really know a lot about CF. She was trying to comfort us by saying "these days, they live much longer"(she was kinda an older lady).

The other lady said something that kinda stuck with me. She said that she would pray that Lil' Chris won't have any symptoms of CF and will stump all the doctors and will be a miracle baby! I thought to myself, "Why didn't I ever think of that?" It could happen, you hear of things like that all the time! One can only pray.

BTW, right before we left for our appointment, I got a call from my OB saying that my glucose test came back ok. Then she proceeded to say "But you are anemic." My reaction was "REALLY?" She asked if I felt tired a lot or out of breath sometimes. I thought I was tired just from not being able to sleep comfortably with this big basketball stomach and being tired from working a full time job on my feet all day! I'm sure that all has something to do with it too, but I guess there was more to it. She wants me to take an iron supplement twice a day to help and also drink lots of water. I'm trying not to worry about, I got enough to worry about. Can anybody give me any tips?

Here are some pics of my 3D ultrasound at 30 weeks pregnant with my baby girl=)

Hope you enjoyed them,

Hey! That was so awesome! I can't get over how much she looks like Lil C in some of the pictures! I can't remember... did you guys get a 3D ultrasound done with him too?

My granddaughter is so beautiful!!
She does look like her big brother. I can't wait to meet her, hold her and give her kisses.
Anxious for Tuesday to get here cause then I know it is only a short time before I see you all but for now I am sending lots of love, hugs & kisses via the internet.

Awww...she's beautiful, like her big brother! It's so exciting to be an aunt to the first and only girl in the family! Thank God for all the good news with Lil Chris, and your pregnancy! When I was pregnant with Lincoln, I was told the same thing, that I was anemic and had to take the iron supplements. I took my pills and drank my water faithfully, but to be honest, I didn't see or feel a difference in how tired I was.
Can't wait to see everyone next week! We are all very excited!
Lots of love,
hugs and kisses
