In my last post I mentioned wishing we could see more of our baby-to-be during our ultrasounds. Last Thursday marked the first in my series of weekly non-stress tests. Basically, I go in for a quick ultrasound so they can measure fluid levels and the little guy's growth and that's followed by 30-45 minutes of charting his heartbeat. The ultrasound tech was great saying, "Let me get what I need and then we'll have some fun." She took all the measurements and then spent 5-10 minutes just showing me what he looks like. It was wonderful. Our 4.5-pound-and-growing little one looked into the monitor and with tiny fists clenched underneath his chin stared straight ahead and blinked at us over and over again. It was the most amazing thing to see him "interacting"! I came home with a stack of pics she snapped of him with eyes opened and closed. I really needed to remember that I am having a whole baby, not just a heart :)!
