Ultrasound & Kristy Higgs - January 25th, besides being cold, brought our first, maybe only, ultrasound. The baby seems perfectly healthy and quite active. The baby was a ham for the "camera". Every attempt at getting a profile shot was thwarted by the little one deciding to face the ultrasound probe. However, in keeping consistent with playing it up for the camera this little boy was quite the exhibitionist like his brother and there was no question as to what we are having. The little guy was measuring just a little big, therefore the midwives changed our due date...again; June 28th. For those of you keeping count that is our fourth due date. So I'm just going to stick to the ever precise date of June 15 - July 15, or right around there. We did get a VHS video of our newest family member and have posted some still pictures of him on the photo portion of this page.

The ultrasound was followed by a regular checkup with another of the Carle midwives, Kristy Higgs, CNM. She was very nice and seemed quite knowledgeable. We went over a few regular pregnancy "side effects" and how to alleviate them. We also chatted with her a little about the labor and delivery of Jesse and some of what happened there so that some of the scarier parts could hopefully be avoided with this one. That's all for now. Our next appointment is February 26th, again with Kristy.
