3-D Ultra Sound: The Ultimate Experience

Above is a 3-D image of our baby girl. You can see her face, nose, and even lips.  If you look closely, her hand is in front of her chin in a fist.

This afternoon John and I were privileged to have a 3-D ultra sound. The ultra sound itself lasted about 13 1/2 minutes. The 3-D imaging was absolutely amazing. The fact that sound waves can give us a 3-D  picture of our unborn child is simply incredible. From the ultra sound, we learned that the baby's organs are all growing appropriately and that she currently weighs 1 pound 4 ounces. Her precious little Colby leg is about 4 inches long. I say Colby leg because the Colbys have huge muscly calves. Hers definitely looked like it was going to be a Colby calf. : )  We feel so grateful for this little, healthy girl. She is already so beautiful and such a wonderful blessing to our lives. As a soon-to-be-mother, all I can say is that I am humbled God granted me this gift to nurture, teach, learn from, and love.

  1. So cool! I'm so excited for you guys! It was so great to see you last weekend, thanks for putting that little party together, it was so much fun! Love you!

  2. Yahoo! I could totally tell her facial features and that her fist was in her face! Her calves are huge! I love it! I am so happy for you two. I just wish I could be there to see your cute belly and talk to your little girl!

  3. Oh my how exciting!! So happy for you and John your letter was super sweet.
