Pictures of the Future. In 3D!

Mike and I elected to do a 3D ultrasound of our twins.  We wanted the pictures to show to family that aren’t living near us, from Sacramento, Connecticut, Australia, and New Zealand.  We elected to do it a bit early at 20 weeks.  Yes, I knew the babies would appear a little “skeletal” as they are so young, but I figured that since they are twins, there will be less and less room the longer we put it off.  I sort of had to convince Mike that it was going to be worth it this early.

We went to Prenatal Peek for the ultrasound.  I went there in the past for a 3D ultrasound of Rhonin and was very pleased.  This time was no different.  Our technician was very nice!  I got to lay down on a comfy bed and Mike sat next to me, holding my hand.  He started on my right side and said, “Looks like this is your girl!”  I was a bit shocked since the girl has always been on the left!  I said, “Oh!  Then make sure it’s a boy on the other side!”  I admit, I may have freaked out a little bit.  But yes, they are still a boy and still a girl.

The little boy was all about taking pictures and looking so snuggly.  He curled up and went into a “cannonball” position.  I thought he looked a little like his father with that cute face!  The girl, however, was a bit more modest, as usual.  Once the ultrasound wand was on my belly, she curled up and turned her back to us.  After changing positions to try to get a good look at her face, we moved on to the boy again.  Right before the session was over, we tried again and finally got a couple images of her face.  I may be totally biased, but I thought they were both adorable!  (Just like little Jaren and little Rhonin!  Those two are overflowing with Cute, too!)

Mike held my hand the entire time.  It was so sweet!  We got some good pictures and a video of them, too.  All in all, it was worth it.  Even if they are a little thin!

Despite the stress and the fact we will be so busy and perhaps overwhelmed, I can’t wait until December to meet these little ones.  I am excited to see Mike meet his children, too.  They aren’t even here yet and I already love them as much as Jaren and Rhonin!  I guess that is just what happens when you’re a mother.  :)
