Jayden's Mini-me

How cool is this?? You can already tell that he looks just like Jayden...
The doctor was a little concerned with my last ultrasound, the baby was only measuring in the 6% and he had a cyst on his brain (it sounds a lot more serious than it really is. Jayden had one too, they're really common and usually go away), so they wanted to schedule another ultrasound to make sure that he was growing right. I tried not to worry about it too much, but it's always an uneasy feeling knowing that the doctor is concerned about your baby. I was anxious for this ultrasound and was surprised when she started doing the 3-D images, it was so crazy seeing our little man swimming around in there. It's hard to believe that he's only about 2 pounds but already looks like a real person. It was really cool, I wish Jason and the kids could have seen it (of course Jason is out of town again...). Some parts are still measuring about 3 weeks smaller than they should, but not to worry he's got a nice sized noggin that's measuring right where it should be (the cyst was gone too, so that was a relief). The doctor's not as concerned anymore, he thinks he'll just be a smaller baby. He may be disproportioned with a huge head, but atleast he's healthy, right?

I've checked your blog twice now waiting for this picture. Thanks for posting it! That is so cute! It really does look like a little baby rather than grainy black and white fuzz. How fun! I'm so grateful that everything looks good. Don't worry about the big head thing. We like big heads! I put a bucket hat on Parker yesterday that was 5-7 year old size. It was tight. My kids have always been big but their heads are a step ahead of the rest of them.

Holy cow. That is amazing. What a cool experience to have a 3-D untrasound done. I have only had the regular ones done and because we never found out what our kids were, the ultrasound was usually pretty short. Soo cool.

I am glad he is healthy and growing.

Angie Whitman said...

Okay, I really started to worry that I have been gone way too long. I couldn't believe you had your baby yet...I don't remember even seeing you showing yet! Than I looked further and realized its a pic of Jayden. I have never gotten one of those 3-D ones. I wish I had.

He's adorable already! Maybe since he's small you have a greater reason to eat more? :-)

MommyRohner said...

Oh SO special! I'm happy that all is well.

Jayden hasn't changed one little bit from his baby pic.

Huge sigh of relief, thank goodness everything looks ok! I'm jealous you got a 3-d!

Kristin said...

I love the 3d! I can't believe how much he looks like Jaden. Does this little guy have a name yet? I'm so glad that everything, is okay. What's wrong with big heads? I'm sure he will be darling!

Mindy said...

That is so fun that you got a 3-D ultrasound! I always wanted to get one when I was pregnant, but never did it. It's so weird that you already know what your little guy is going to look like. Glad everything is alright with him! Talk to you soon.

That picture is amazing. I wish I had one of those when I was pregnant. I am coming home August 2nd. We are sad for our blissful vacation to end. I have to tell you a cute story. When we were in Idaho at church we took Tanner to nursery because we thought he would like that more than Sunbeams since he had cousins in nursery to play with....when I picked him up after church he was hystericly crying. I asked the teacher if he cried the whole time and she said only the last 5 min. After we picked him up I swear he cried for another half hour...then after he finally calmed down I asked why he was crying and he said, "I MISS JAYDEN!" Well, he is going through Jayden withdrawls and we need to get our boys together asap!

I'm glad everything is fine. That is such a relief. That 3D ultrasound is amazing! 81 days doesn't seem too far away.
