Today Serena and I took our lunch hour to go get our first ultrasound!
We were very excited parents, overjoyed at seeing our child so safe and secure in mommy's tummy!
The kid was bouncing all over the place in there. Our friend, Nurse
Angie (who works at the local Crisis Pregnancy Center associated with
our church) performed the ultrasound and gave us pictures of the baby.
She also told us, based on measurements, and other factors the computer
takes in to consideration, that our due date is actually 09/09/2009!
When she first saw our baby, she said, "This is not a 9-week baby!" As
it turns out, the baby measures like it's 14-weeks along! In a couple
of weeks we can find out the gender of the baby, even!
One of the things our baby did was look directly at the transducer (aka
the probe they put on the mommy's tummy), then it stretched its arm and
legs. It's going to be a BIG baby! Nurse Angie said that normally
doesn't happen, so we're going to have an active baby. Normally they
keep their arms close to their chest and suck on their thumb or
She says we're doing a great job as parents, me just taking care of
Serena, and Serena just taking care of herself and the baby! We are SO
excited to become parents!
Thanks for all your continuing love, prayer and support!
Josh & Serena
