I am ecstatic to share that everything went really well at my appointment on Monday. I shared in my last post how nervous I was for the appointment and so I am glad it is over. It’s funny because I have had no signs that anything is wrong but for some reason I just couldn’t shake the feeling that they would find something. Maybe it was because they were doing the major ultrasound that looked in depth at all of little Hudson’s inner workings. However, I really tried to give it over to God and I knew that if anything did show up we could handle it.
What I wasn’t prepared for was how magical this appointment would be. I got to spend a whole 20 minutes looking at my baby..and boy is he cute! I had the best ultrasound tech ever and she was amazing at talking me though all that she was looking at and assuring me that he looked perfect :) At the last appointment we hadn’t gotten to see his face because he had his back to us so I was amazed at how much he is looking like a real baby.
According to the tech I am carrying low but that isn’t anything to be concerned about. The little Hudster had his hands behind his head (which is the way that his dad falls asleep every night). One of the neatest things was to see some of the ways he is taking after both me and the Hubs. For instance, the tech said it looks like Hudson has flat feet which he totally got from me..sorry bud! I also totally think he has the Hubs nose which is good b/c his is way cuter than mine! The tech said it looks like he is running right along with me because his legs are really developing some muscle..go Hudson! I guess we really do have a little marathoner on our hands.
Although I can’t feel him that much now he was moving a lot at the appointment. I really can’t get over how much I already love this little guy! Right now he weighs 10 oz’s and he is right on track for his due date. The nurse also pointed out that he is in a V position where his head is next to his feet…that doesn’t seem that comfortable but I guess he’s not complaining. Hudson’s heart and brain looked great and they didn’t see any area of concern..thank you Lord!
I mentioned a little while ago how I was having a hard time with the changes my body is going through. I have always loved this little guy and I knew I had a baby inside of me but really seeing him has totally changed my heart and perspective on this matter. Maybe I finally felt the mama bear instinct kick in but just seeing his little face makes me want to do anything for him (even gaining weight and being taken out of my comfort zone). Not to say that I won’t have some hard times in the future (I am sure I will) but I am so in love with him that I don’t care what I have to endure as long as he gets here healthy!
I really can’t wait for the next appointment to get to see my little guy again! We did get a ton of print out pictures that I look at every day and they put it all on dvd so we can watch him anytime we want …I love modern technology!
