what a weekend...
At about 2h30am on Saturday morning, I woke up with sudden pain on the nose. I collected myself and after a few seconds I knew exactly what had happened: I have 3 cats and they often sleep just in front of me at night, or between me and the edge of the bed. They probably stretched or something which likely made them lose balance and fall off the edge. As they fell they grabbed on to whatever was there to try and stay on, that included my nose... Unfortunately I have no idea which of my 3 cats it was, it could really be any of them... I now have a very pretty scratch from the side to the tip of my nose... sexy... pffff! lol
Saturday morning, we had an appointment at 3dbaby.ca. We kept it a secret just for fun... A co-worker had recommended it. It's basically a 'non-diagnostic' or 'non-medical' ultrasound that is intended only to give you a keepsake of the baby in you belly, in 3d. They take photos and videos and you get to keep all of it:)
I was slightly scared to go at first - for safety first (I read a bunch of articles about it and that reassured me) but mostly I thought - what if the baby looks funny, or has an arm growing on its forehead or something? It would be a pretty scary way to find that out! LOL I guess it wouldn't be better to find that out at birth right? But also, I had 2 'medical' ultrasounds in the past and they would have picked that up... I guess it was a pretty silly fear :)
It was SO worth it!! To see the baby's face made it feel even more 'real'. To see it move and see that it looks comfortable and alive and all... it was fascinating:)
Here are 3 pictures that they took:
I don't know if you can tell, but in the second picture, the baby's eyes are open! So cool! And slightly creepy - in a good way, hee hee :)
After the ultrasound S and I had a permanent grin on our faces, we were walking on a cloud all weekend :)
And on Sunday we had our last hypnobirthing class. We talked a lot about the birth itself this time and that was great - I think we are well prepared now - we can do this! :)
We also went grocery shopping and I prepped some lunches for the week - it was really a good start to the week!
