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.
