Last week, Kim and I went to Prenatal Imaging in Martinez, GA to get a 4-D Sonogram done.We took this step for two reasons. First, there was a degree of uncertainty starting to surround the Baby Gender Mentor test we had done in July. (The test reported we had a boy, but there’s some concern about the validity of the Baby Gender Mentor test.) Secondly, there was a degree of curiosity as to what the baby might look like inside of Kim’s body.The 4-D Sonogram was awesome.I met Kim at the Prenatal Imaging offices at 4pm on Thursday afternoon. They had Kim fill out some paperwork and select a plan. They then escorted us to the songram room where Kim’s parents, sister and brother-in-law, my mom, and our niece Meaghan joined us. They helped Kim up onto the examination table and laid her down. For 35 minutes we were able to sit and watch as they “peered” into Kim’s tummy. It was awesome, awe-inspiring thing to watch. Little Tyler’s already very active. He moved a lot inside of Kim. We got to watch him suck his thumb… and yawn… and stick out his tongue… It was amazing at how much detail the 4-D Sonogram picked up.We’re anxiously awaiting his arrival now. Kim is 29 weeks along, and we’re expecting to have Tyler delivered by C-Section sometime on or around 12/20-21.Our next session is scheduled for November 12th. I’ll post pics and video from that session as soon as I have it available to me :)
Things are going well for Kim and the Baby! She enters the 3rd trimester on Wednesday. We’re both excited to be so close to the end.
Life threw us a curveball over the weekend. We discovered that the Baby Gender Mentor might be as accurate as we previously thought. A recent report on NPR and posts on several websites, including in-Gender.com, have caused us to seriously doubt the results we were given back in July. We’ve invested a lot of time and money in getting ready for a boy. If Kim has a girl, we won’t be devestated, but we’ll definitely be inconvenienced at the start.
To avoid any issues, we decided to give a local company – Prenatal Imaging – a try. They specialize in 3D ultrasounds. Hopefully, they’ll be able to give us better insight as to what Kim and I should be expecting.
I know it’s a little weird to be so concerned about what the gender will be. I wish we could be more patient like my boss and his wife were (who recently gave birth to a baby girl!). They didn’t know what the baby would be til she came into this world. I’m too inpatient, though. I’m like a kid at Christmas. I see the present. I want to know what’s inside. Know what I mean?
Anyway, we’re going for the u/s appointment on Thursday at 4pm. It’s not cheap, but it could give us some piece of mind. Kim’s got enough stress on her as it is. She doesn’t need to be worrying about what’s inside her, too. (Because that’s all she’s stewed over all weekend.)
