3D-4D Ultrasound

Just for fun, Brian and I decided to have a 3D-4D ultrasound done today and here are a few of the 3D pictures we got. The 4th dimension is time, so the 4D just means we got a video of the session, in addition to the 3D still-shots. (FYI...the 3D machine works via algorithms, which explains the weird shadows and distortions in the images. Click on the pictures above to see them enlarged).

Brian and his mom, Peggy, joined me at the session. We were all able to watch the session on a 90-inch screen which was fantastic. While the sessions usually last about 20 minutes, we were in there for a good 50 minutes since Little Hittle was not completely cooperating! While the baby's head was down in my pelvis, it was stretching its legs so that its feet were down by its face, blocking the view for awhile. Then, once we got the legs to move out of the way, Little Hittle promptly placed a hand in front of his/her face! Geez! Maybe the baby is already camera shy... or, more likely, s/he is just a bit stubborn like me!

We got to see all sorts of cute things... Little Hittle stuck his/her tongue out a couple of times and did a lot of practice sucking, we saw that the baby has hair, and we got to see our cutie's chubby cheeks and luscious lips!
