Daily Note: April 6, 2009

Well. We had our big ultrasound today and everything looks to be smooth sailing so far. The baby is growing at the right rate and we could see Bart punching and twisting all over the place. What Bart refused to do however, is uncross his legs to show us “his” gender! I am inappropriately disappointed. I was so excited to find out if it was a boy or girl this morning that Jeff had to remind me of the most important thing – the baby is healthy.

They said they’d try to squeeze us in again soon for a quick re-do, so that we won’t have to wait another month for my next regularly scheduled appointment. Keep your fingers crossed it works next time.
In the meantime, here's the best pic of the day. This is his/her left face profile and chest.

OMG!!! BART!!! So Bart is a little on the stubborn side. Who does he/she get that from? This is the same thing that happened to Betsey. I hope it does not happen to me. Spread those legs, Bart. Show yourself!

So so happy that Bart is healthy and doing well. And what a profile. He/she is gorgeous.

I was afraid that might happen. If you were in St Louis, I would tell you to go visit my sister (she's a labor and delivery nurse and often plays around with the ultrasound for my friends). Since you're not, I'll cross my fingers that they squeeze you in soon.

In the meantime, you have a super cute baby in there!!

So baby talk has been big at the art table lately and today's topic was getting the baby to uncross those legs. There seemed to be two answers that repeated - may be old wives tales, may be worth a shot, they worked for the moms at the table. Drink ice cold water or gatorade, gatorade seemed to get more results (or at least more people tried it).

So drink up and I hope they can squeeze you in asap!

Why does Bart have to be such a prude? Tell him to loosen up already.
