Much To Be Thankful For

Today we had our 20 week ultrasound for baby #5. I'll share some photos with you. They are hard to see, and scanning them didn't help the quality of the pictures, but when we saw them on the ultrasound machine, they were all great quality. It was such a blessing to see that our latest little one is seems to be healthy and developing normally ;)

Here's a little foot. The pictures were clear enough on the machine that we could count fingers and toes. All there :)

This is a profile picture. The left cheek is facing us, and the spine sort of goes up the picture. So the forehead is to the far right, with the nose and lips and chin sticking up toward the top ... if that makes sense.

Here is a picture of the face with the arms up next to it, and the belly to the right. It's a great view of the nose and lips.

And this is a little bit skeletal looking, but is a good view of the face straight on. The blob in the center showed up when I scanned it. There isn't a growth on the chest ;)

This was such a better scan than we had with the last one, which was fuzzy and hard to make anything out. The doctor spent a lot more time with us this time, and explained everything. She must have been in a big hurry last time. She told us last time around that we were having a girl ... which turned out to be a boy. But this was a much better experience. Also, we weren't planning on finding out if it's a boy or girl, but it was easy to see in the scan, so we know. And, we aren't telling :P At least not yet. Not even our own kids.
