Week 25 and as of today there’s 14 weeks to go for the little mixed vegetable and guess who’s ready?
Ha, your guess was probably me, but you would be wrong! Baby j at todays ultrasound we discovered was already in the head down *let me out* position! Hahaha, and I thought I was in a hurry for August to get here! Now I guess it’s my turn to tell the little guy nope, sorry little one you still got 14 weeks to hang out in there. Like mother, like son, right?
You are probably wondering why this week he’s a mixed vegetable? Well, lets just say we discovered that the app we use What to Expect and their website didn’t match each other this time. The website said the little guy should be the size of corn…yet again, on my phone it said he was the size of a turnip, but, on my bf’s phone baby J is the size of a rutabaga! Now yes, turnips and rutabagas are pretty much the same I think, but um, how about the corn? So this week we decided that he’s our little mixed vegetable, lol. What will he be next week? hahaha, only time will tell!
Now lets back up to the beginning of the ultrasound, smiles.
Baby J was already bouncing around, poking and stretching and having a grand old time, but as I learned last time that doesn’t mean he’d stay that way! So this morning he had lots of apple juice followed up by all that water I had to drink an our before the ultrasound. This time however before the appointment I drank more apple juice to make sure he stayed in a good mood, ha!
It worked like a charm!
The techs were worried that just like last time J wouldn’t cooperate so they were prepared for that. We didn’t need to worry at all, smiles. The very first awesomely clear picture was a straight on shot of his little face. *Say cheese!* There was absolutely no problems at all getting all the shots they needed of him, face, heart and better measurements, yay!
Now here’s when it really got amusing. Baby J was of course moving around the whole time, but not making things too difficult, until . . .
We got to the part where it was time for us to get to hear the heartbeat. Well, hahaha, lets just say that was fun! He was clearly dancing around in his tiny house according to the tech and this is what we got . . .
baby J: 1 heartbeat….run away, come find me!
Tech, searches for baby again
Baby J, this time 2 heartbeats….bye bye, try again!
Tech, for the third time catch the little monster
Baby J, a little longer heartbeat…..ha, fooled you, catch me catch me!
Tech laughing, tries again
Baby J, Oh all right! You win!
His heart rate after all that fun is at 160!
Pissed off baby J
Oopsy, the tech accidentally pissed off the baby. They had a good shot of the heart, but they wanted to try for one more and hopefully a better shot. He apparently changed positions from the one they got earlier since this time what they needed to see was under my belly button and it’s *really* hard to get pictures then. Well . . . the tech pushed down a little to try and get J to move over just a little bit and well um . . .
Baby J, medium kick….I don’t like that!
Tech, whew, I felt that. So she tries again to get him to move over and pushes down in the same spot.
Baby J, a *whole* lot harder kick this time….I said I don’t like that!
Tech, wow, he definitely does not like me pushing there!
Me, um, nope, I would say not!
The little guy kicked so hard that last time that the little camera thing went off my stomach. I swear if she wasn’t holding onto it, it would have gone across the room, hahahah. I do believe that we will have no trouble knowing when he is *not* pleased with something. What do you think?
That was our adventure with the ultrasound appointment today! Until next time, have a great week!
