4D Ultrasound!


Went out to Mirror Imaging Ultrasound today to have a 4D ultrasound done of Jacob. He is so far down, and pressed against Kristen’s stomach that it was hard to get a good shot of him. We managed to get a few that were recognizable. The tech commented on his strong nose and cheeks, and that he was “definitely a boy”!

First Ultrasound


We had the first ultrasound at the doc visit today. It was pretty wild to see the baby for the first time. There was a lot of time spent doing measurements of the various parts to be sure things were progressing well. I must say, it is impressive that the technician was able to identify what she did… it looked like a hazy mystery to us for a long time. Then, all of a sudden, she got to the face and BAM… there was the baby! We got some really great shots of the face, hands and feet. After about 45 minutes, the tech finally told us… we are having a baby boy!

This took us both by surprise. Our families were so sure that it was a girl (except my dad) that we had kind of accepted that thought too… even having a girl name all picked out. Needless to say, we were thrilled and have started the process of picking boy names.

After the visit, we drove back to my parents house where both sets of parents and grandparents were waiting to hear the news. Being Kristen’s birthday today, it was a wonderful way to celebrate!
