We went today to get some 3D images of Fetus 2.0.  One because we did it with the Mini and I figured I’d try to be fair, and two, well, that whole fair thing?  Yeah, the key word being “try.”   Because this poor kid has already gotten the shaft.   Used furniture, fewer pictures, and lack of rememberance for taking my prenatal vitamin.

With the Mini, I had eleventy billion ultrasounds, just given the nature of IVF.  With this one, I’ve had like, three, I think.   It’s been weird just kind of being like a normal pregnant person, wondering what’s going on in there.  And believe me, I wonder often.

First, it never gets old seeing your kids on an ultrasound.  I was blown away when I saw the Mini’s 3D pictures.  I couldn’t stop staring at them for weeks.  It was amazing to see his face.  The old feelings rushed back today, and I’ve been staring at 2.0 all evening.   Second, the Mini was insanely well behaved for having to sit in a dark room for 45 minutes while the ultrasound tech diligently worked to move this one’s foot out of it’s face.   Also?  The cuteness that is my son cannot be denied.  Everytime 2.0 popped up on the big screen in 3D, he would shout “HI BABY!”

My kid is a super genius.   And I have a feeling that even given the toddler tantrums, two is going to really rock.

When I had the kids waaaay back 11-12 years ago there was no such thing as 3-D imaging..and I had like 2 U/S with them both..this pregnancy was entirely different that I constantly was having U/S’s like,, felt like every 2 weeks or so. When they asked me if I wanted to see her in 3-D I was absolutely amazed..I think I was at about 30 weeks when I first saw her..and she came looking pretty much like the 3-D picture. I framed her first, middle and 3-D picture…cause i’m weird like that ;)

That sounds like such a cool experience! I am all ready to run out and find a 3D ultrasound place. I really wonder what they’re going to think when these kiddos actually make their debut. Tabby is giving my belly kisses and pats and sharing her binky (with my belly button, of course) … but I am wondering how long she’s going to be ticked that she’s not the center of the universe anymore.

As young as Mini is, the fact that he recognized the baby on ultrasound is teh awesome!
