Our little girl

Here are some of the ultrasound pictures we got on Monday! We're still deciding on a name, but we've got it narrowed down to 2! We've got time, so I'm not too worried about it. I'm just anxious to be able to call her by her name. I love the first one and the last one. The first is such a cute profile shot! In the second and last one, you can see her cheeks starting to get chubby! We'll see though, but so far, I make babies with adorable chubby cheeks! lol

She was estimated to be 11oz in these pictures. I can see the resemblance between her and Aiden and Cameron. Especially Cameron, because...well, I saw him in person at that exact age. That kept popping into my head while I was looking at the ultrasound. The tech. kept saying stuff to the effect of, "She's still little, but with the 4D, you can get an idea of what she actually looks like." I wanted to be like, "I know what she looks like, and I know how big she would be if I were to be holding her right now." She's got a bit more fat on her than Cam did - atleast according to the estimate. But, I know those can be off. Before we lost Cameron, they were estimating him to be about 9oz. He was 7.1oz when he was born. Then again, I suppose he could have lost weight from the infection maybe? :( .... I don't know.

I had a horrible nightmare lastnight that I lost this baby. My water broke and I delivered her right there, but nothing was done about it. They just picked her up and whisked her away and I was sent home. I remember in my dream, I kept thinking about how things were with Cameron. How I got to spend time with him, how I got pictures, inprints of his hands and feet, his hat and blanket, etc. I was so upset and cried throughout the rest of my dream. Then I woke up.

I ran down stairs and grabbed my doppler, and picked her up the minute I put the wand on my belly. It was just weird because I haven't had a dream like that in a LONG time.

I fell back asleep only to restart the dream! This happened twice! I should have just stayed awake!

All I have to say is THANK GOD FOR DOPPLERS!! I love being able to check on her from time to time just to ease my mind! :)

Hugs to you. Thanks for sharing your ultrasound. I've been following your blog for awhile. I am so happy that things are going well for you this time! I hate scary dreams like the one you had... Dreams like that should be outlawed! I'm glad that it was only a dream though.

I'm thinking that you should name her has a ring to it, right? Thank you for sharing her u/s pics with us, and she is so cute!

I'm sorry for your dream, and I know its hard to shake all of those nerves because of what you've been through...
