Window in the Womb

“For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb… Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:13, 16

Today Wade & I went to Window in the Womb for our 4D sonogram. It was AMAZING! I am not usually a crier, but I cried through the entire thing. It is so neat to see your baby look like a real baby instead of the usual black and white 2D alien-like pictures that we have seen at the doctor's office. I realize, of course, that to most people these pictures still look grainy and a little odd. But, to me they are absolutely beautiful! It makes me even more excited (if that is possible!) about meeting this little person.

The technician said that Drew's heartbeat was about 130 beats per minute (normal). She also said that she could already see hair (hence the heartburn - I totally believe that old wives' tale!). At first he was in a bad position, but she was able to get him to move into a position where she could get some pretty good images. She said that he was already photogenic - HA! We got to see him yawn, stretch, smile, and blink. It was truly magical! I tear up just thinking about it - these pregnancy hormones are no joke!
We can't wait to meet you Baby Drew!

For comparison's sake, here is the 4D sonogram picture of Clayton. (Yes, that is his foot next to his face!) The ones of Drew came out so much better - it's amazing how much technology improves in 3 1/2 years! It's hard to tell if they look alike... maybe the chubby cheeks! :)

Wow! You really can see alot in that 4D sonogram! I'm shocked....But not about the crying! ;-) Do you need me to "out" you about the Big/Little Bro. t-shirts? ;-)

I see a resemblance in the nose too and of course Drew will be handsome, just like Clayton! I'm excited to meet him too!
