I'm so happy, I'm making up words!!
We just had our anatomy scan this morning, and I couldn't be more pleased. Baby Sister is still decidedly female, and this time, instead of being in shock, I'm all smiles. I don't know if it's directly correlated to the quality of the images, or just the time I've had to ponder things and to feel her move around more, but whatever the reason I feel infinitely more upbeat, happy, and connected with this pregnancy and baby.
Baby Sister is super active, challenging the tech to hone her skills (which I must say were impressive) and catch even the merest flicker of a picture. The results were mind-blowing. She's perfect. And the technology they have is just... awesome. We got the most fantastic pictures. And then... THEN... she did some 3D pictures without even telling us that's what she was doing until they popped up on the screen.
I have to admit that in the past I've been somewhat blase about the idea of 3D pictures. I had a take it or leave it mentality about them, and since most doctors don't use them for diagnostic purposes, I chalked them up to superfluous... ity? See: more made up word!
I'm over the moon. And so freakin' blessed I can hardly stand it.
Thank you so much to all of you, because even though I hardly talk about it anymore, I do have my moments of darkness and doubt. And knowing you all are out there is what gets me through. I wishing each of you your own unspeakable joys.
