The 3rd dimension

I am such a bad blogger these days... I am so swamped with work! It's a good thing though, being self-employed, the more I work, the more money I make! And I've been sick with a bad cold for the last 4 days. I did not sleep at all Friday and Saturday night so I went to the the pharmacist. He told me I could take some Sinus Tylenol (which the other pharmacist had not told me 2 days earlier) so things have been better since then. Anywho...

Last week, I had my appointment for my 3D u/s. This u/s was just for fun, so they didn't measure anything. It was solely to see our little boy one more time.

This u/s took place in a private fertility clinic. I have been to a regular public ob-gyn clinic for the last 3 years, but my dr was also a RE. The u/s I have had before where either there or at the hospital. There has always been pregnant women where I went. So this was new for me. I had never been to this private clinic and as soon as I walked in, I felt weird. I knew every couple in the waiting room were there to receive fertility treatment. I knew they were still waiting to get what I have. I knew they would hate the sight of my round belly and I understood. I tried to hide it as much as I could, but it's not that easy to hide a watermelon under you coat. The receptionist had the sensibility of making me wait in a seperate room, alone with P, which was a relief for both of us. It's not written on my forehead that it took us 3 years to acheive this pregnancy, so there was no reason for these couples not to hate me. I know, I've been there.

The u/s went really well. I learned that Pépin is now upside down, ready to go! That's why I had been feeling him differently lately. The fact that he was head first meant he would have less liberty of movement for the u/s. He had his hands in front of his face the whole time, but we got a few good shots of his cute cheeks anyway.

The u/s lasted a long time. There was a part in 2D and we saw him yawn. How hard is the life of a fetus, I wonder?

I love seeing him again. It seems I fall in love all over when I see him, so big, so alive. Every u/s makes his existence a little more real, a little closer.

Here are some pictures of my Pépin in 3D.
His mouth open, with his little hand
His big cheeks
His little hands and one foot in front of his face (quite flexible!)
Showing his biceps
His long feet
Pinching his nose
Sucking his thumb
