3D Ultrasound

I tried to post ahead of today's 3D u/s but my work computer didn't get along with blogger.  Something about an outdated version of IE.  *sigh* Why can't the IT folks at work get with the program and allow us to use the newest version or figure out that other browsers out there are better?

Anyway, I got my 3D scan done today.  I haven't planned on pregnancy photos so I felt this was an extra I could definitely afford.  He was as stubborn as ever sticking his hands in front of his face regularly.  The tech had to try to get his attention a lot in an attempt to get him to move his hands.  Sometimes it worked, sometimes not.  And my mom got to watch live from across the country.  That was pretty cool!

Here is the little guy, as best we could get him:

3D scan of the little guy at 26w2d

My mom says he looks like I did when I was little.  That is a bit of a relief.  I did spend some time worrying about what he will look like, not because I think he's going to look like an extra-terrestrial, but because I worry about him wondering who he looks like and having no one to compare his features to until he is 18.  If he looks like me and our side of the family it will be a lot easier for him to identify with us and spend slightly less time wondering where he gets his nose from.  lol

He's now sitting head mostly down hanging out on the right side of my uterus.  His feet are up by my bellybutton.  This would explain the high kicking I felt this weekend and his activity when I am on my right side.  I'm not sure if he is complaining when I roll over to the right or if he's happy.  No idea but he definitely gets more active.

Not much else to report.  Work is still busy.  Thank god for one of our analysts who is tackling my files for next week.  I still didn't have any of them in hand when I got in this morning.  A week before my hearings!!!  One of our admin assistants has a serious time management problem but thinks she can do all this by herself and refuses to allow anyone else to help.  That's changing now that we're getting more admin help.  We need our stuff in order to prep.  I can't read through a file in 5 minutes and then be ready for a hearing.  Sheesh!  Anyway, the analyst is taking a swing through the next 4 files which will help to relieve my stress immensely.  I have a midwife appointment tomorrow, an appointment with the security system installer Wednesday morning, I have to vote Thursday, deal with life insurance Thursday night, and then hop on a plane late Saturday for another week away.

But I do get so spend Thanksgiving back home and will get some quality time with the niece and nephew.  Yay!
