With only 81 days remaining we’re glad to finally be in the home stretch of this pregnancy – but we’re even more excited to share our some of the amazing images and videos from the 4D ultrasound we got to experience today. Just prior to the ultrasound I got to endure one of the most exciting tests during pregnancy – the dreaded glucose test. Though we thought the baby would be more active with a sugar rush – it actually had quite the opposite effect on him. He was rather calm in comparison to what I’ve been use to – I’ve experienced many days & nights with a little one who must be thinking he’s going to be a black belt in karate, perhaps a soccer player, or heck he might just be football player at the rate he’s been kicking. But during the ultrasound he seemed very comfortable resting. He was caught sucking his thumb a number of times. The joke is that he didnt’ want his picture taken. We all could do nothing but laugh because even Hope was saying how he better get ready because “Mommy is going to want to take a lot of pictures”. Little does he know his Mother is like the paparazzi with taking pictures!
The experience was certainly priceless! I’ve uploaded all of our 4D ultrasound photos to Baby Kern’s set in flickr for you all to enjoy. And you might want to check out the videos I’ve quickly put together for you all to view online. There are several videos which are just a few seconds each of Baby Kern moving around, sucking his thumb, and relaxing. After getting a glimpse of the baby today Jason and I both discussed how much he seems to resemble Hope when she was a newborn. (Don’t believe me? Check out a picture of her when she was just a day old.)
And if you’re wondering about Hope – she’s certainly excited now. She asks several times a day how much longer until he’s born, how big he is now, and seems to constantly be wondering what he’s doing. I’m convinced she’s going to be a great big sister and will be a huge help with the baby.
Anyhow, enjoy the photos & videos!
