Epic Fail

So yesterday... the biggest EPIC fail in my pregnancy occurred. Seriously! I had scheduled a 3D/4D ultrasound. I invited my parents, brothers (one who drove in from IL to visit and see Connor), James' brother, his fiance and our niece and nephew. I was so excited.

I wanted to get a better look of Connor and maybe even see who he resembles. At our 20 week ultrasound, he was facing my back so we were unable to get a good look at his face. 11 weeks later, I hoped we could see a little more.


After 45 minutes, all we knew was that Connor has a nice big foot (thanks, Hubster) and he has some hair on his head. But.... that. was. it!

Connor is now head down, facing my back/spine. We couldn't get a picture or view of anything other than his backside. My boy has a nice spine! ;) But again... he is laying in the wrong position for photos.

All I am asking for is a glimpse of his face! That isn't asking for too much, right?? So now, we are going back on Sept. 10th. I hope that by then he has moved a little so we are able to get a better look at him. And if not, I guess I just have to wait for his birthday to see my Little Mister.

Dear Connor,
           Being stubborn like your Daddy and Mom Mom won't get you very far with me. Momma loves you and wants to see a little more of you. Do me a favor and give me what I want and I will buy you a pony!


  1. Oh the joys of pregnancy! He will move... and if he doesn't, you'll have the most gorgeous first look ever when he is born.

  2. My sister had the same problem with her oldest. She refused to cooperate with any of the ultrasounds and hid her face at every appointment. Surprisingly now, my niece is one of the sweetest, least stubborn children I know.

  3. We did one of those 4D ultrasounds and while it was cool, to be honest, I don't think those pictures look very much like what he looked like when he was born. However, they look more like what he does now that he's older which is weird.
