3D ultrasound

So we went for our 3D ultrasound on Saturday. Me, Tony, Kristi, Kylee, mom, Carol, Mike and Karrie all went. We had to drive all the way out to almost Kissimmee but it was free and it was worth it.

The lady doing the ultrasound used to be an OB and surgeon so she was able to give us a lot of information we didn't get at our other ultrasounds. She could tell by the length of the arm that the due date is around 8-30, but the length of the leg done gives a due date of around 9-6. Personally, I think he will be born between 9/3 -9/5. We will see in a few weeks. She said he is a chubby baby but still within normal size for his age, around 3-3.5 lbs. She said all of his organs and everything look good and my fluid and placenta look good and my cervix is closed.

He would only give us a profile view so we still can't really tell who he looks like, but we think he might have gotten my nose and Tony's chin. The best of both of us so far, the smaller chin and smaller nose. Lord help his eyebrows though. :-) He does have hair on his head. You could see his little outline and everything. I think it will be really dark when he comes out.

I think it was really neat for everoney to see, none of us had ever seen anything like that before. Got some good pictures too.

  1. 3-D ultrasound can furnish us with a 3 dimensional image of what we are scanning. The transducer takes a series of images, thin slices, of the subject, and the computer processes these images and presents them as a 3 dimensional image. Using computer controls, the operator can obtain views that might not be available using ordinary 2-D ultrasound scan. The scans requires special probes and software to accumulate and render the images, and the rendering time has been reduced from minutes to fractions of a seconds. M-F 10am-8pm Saturday and Sunday 10am-4pm. 4d ultrasound
