First and foremost a HUGE thank you to my friend Melanie for doing this ultrasound for us! It was so good to see Miss Ella again even if she didn't exactly want to cooperate. She is wedged down really low and was moving around like crazy and it made it really hard to get a good shot of her. Melanie was also able to tell me that my fluid levels are a bit high. In a normal pregnancy at 30 weeks amniotic fluid levels are usually around 12-14 cm. I have about 20 cm of amniotic fluid. But the good news is that Ella is exactly the size she should be for a 30 week baby. And as always she looked pretty perfect except for the fact that she is missing the top of her head! So here are a few pictures of Ella!
Ella from the outside! (Pay no attention to my messy bathroom)
A shot of her little nose and mouth.
In this picture you can see where her head ends and a little bit of her brain sticking up out of her skull.
She has her hand on top of her face above her nose like she is saying "Enough with the pictures already!"
This is one of my favorites! She was putting her thumb in her mouth to suck it.
A profile shot.
A picture of her sweet feet! (Melanie assured me that her legs were not cut off it was just the angle of the shot!:-))
