June 1st...

After getting home from the 4D scan, I received a call from my OB and found out that we're now on for Wednesday! Crazy. She said that after doing some recon, she found out the results from the amnio should be available 2 hours after they're sent in. So...I better have my pillow and bag, because I'm not leaving after that! One week from today...insane. I realize it's a little earlier than we ever expected, but if our OB and peri are both confident in this decision, we're totally willing to go with it. Every day that passes brings more anxiety and fear of that dreaded day when he stops moving so next Wednesday can't come soon enough!

With that being said, we were reminded once again how stubborn little Samuel is while doing the 4D scan. James and I met for lunch beforehand and I purposely had a soda to hopefully get him dancing. (I don't normally have any kind of soda while pregnant.) Sure enough, he danced all the way to the office, then fell asleep. Once we got in there, he had his knee and arms covering his face, so the tech got to sit there poking around again like last week. After about 30 minutes of that and turning side to side, we did finally get a few good shots. Afterwards, the tech looked at us and said, "Alright...which one of you is THIS stubborn!??!?" That would be me. She said, "So he looks like daddy, but acts like mommy, huh?" Apparently so.

Initially, this was as close as we thought we were going to get...


But by the end, we were able to get a good profile shot...


Here's hoping that we get to meet him around this time next week. More importantly...here's hoping he is a healthy little guy and that those steroid shots do their job and boost his lung maturity!
