Well, I know I said that we were doing the 3-D last Thursday, and we went, but little miss Turtle wasn't trying to have anything to do with getting her pictures taken!! The harder we tried to get her to move and look at us, the more she snuggled into that placenta!!! She was head up and off to the right side on Thursday evening. After trying for almost a half an hour to get pics the U/S tech told me to just take the weekend, drink all the water I could, and come back today at noon. Well, I did just that, and then added a Venti White Chocolate Mocha w/ 3 shots of espresso from St*rBucks about a half and hour before the U/S... normally I wouldn't do that, but damn it $150 bucks was riding on that cup of freaking coffee!!! Well, little Turtle had decided at some point during the weekend to go from head up to head down and we got to see quite a bit of her pretty little face!!! She has her mommies chin, a TON of hair, and loves to play Peek-A-Boo already (as she did that for half of the session!!!) She loves to play with her face, and often had her hand up touching her lips. We got to see her swallowing, practicing breathing, and sticking her tongue out!!
I cannot tell you how surreal it was for me to see my daughters face!! This whole pregnancy has seemed like a dream, and I still have a hard time believing that this is all happening, in fact I am sure that it won't totally hit me until she is safe in my arms, and maybe not even then!!! I mean it is just so hard to wrap my mind around the fact that this little human is living in my "belly", even though I feel her move, and can see her on the U/S's, it just doesn't seem fathomable at all, quite the opposite actually!! I have started feeling like this is all a horrible joke, and I am going to wake up one morning, and she will be gone... Clark says that I am being unrealistic, but I know the terrible things that can happen, and I am not right for the day until this little girl lets me know she is in there by moving!! I mean 31 weeks, and I am still in denial... Wonder if it is ever gonna be real?????
