On Vox: Baby's first photoshoot!

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!  Wow!

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 something.

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

Haha! Hey, what are you doing on LiveJournal?

There's actually one more picture I added to the original Vox post.

Re: so exciting!

I wasn't "on" Live Journal...I just got the email with your post, so I went there to post a reply.

I don't think I know how to see your Vox posts. I just thought you weren't doing much blogging these days. Can you send me the link?

Thanks! Love you,
Mom

Yay! It's a mini Red Headed Jeebus!

Ask Serena if she's happy in three months with that very active baby dancing on her bladder. :P

On a sort of tangent, you made lowfwyr and I talk for a good long while about the whens, whys, wherefores and such of us finally producing podlings, and I thought you might want to know that the first boy we have is going to be named Joshua Lawrence.

I am so incredibly happy for you both! You'll be wonderful parents! You should look into having a doula at the birth (even if it is a long way away), sometimes they make all the difference! Give Serena a hug for me!

Hey!!

A doula is basically a non-family, non-medical birthing partner who's trained to take care of the mommy-to-be during the birth. We know all the tricks of the trade and do anything possible to make the birthing mom feel better. A lot of places now are offering free doulas (we do at my hospital in SD), so that's really helpful... I hope everything is going really well for you two! :)
