We have been looking forward to this final ultrasound for months now, but much to our intense disappointment, Baby Franco slept like a rock all day today and we did not get very good pictures this time. As some of you may know, Michael and I had been looking forward to this ultrasound because we were going to get the uber-cool 3D ultrasound this time. We were going to be able to see our baby's face!
Unfortunately, Baby Franco likes to sleep like his/her mommy, head pressed into a soft pillow and hands curled up near the face. Except Baby F. was pressed up into the placenta with his/her little hands covering the face. Not to mention the baby was upside down (back to the ultrasound wand) and refused to roll over so we could get a good look at him.
I ate three snacks before the ultrasound, and then stuffed myself with food, sugar and caffeine before going back after lunch for Try #2 (the technician felt sorry for us and came back early from lunch to try getting some pictures for us again before her afternoon appointments arrived). No luck.
Oh well. We got one semi-good picture and couple of Just OK's. And--good news!--Baby Franco is perfectly healthy, happy AND already sleeps for hours at a time through just about anything!
