Today was a day I've been waiting for for a long time. I had an appointment at UCBaby in Moncton and got to get a good look at the newest Steeves. Unfortunately he 'had an attitude' as the tech kept putting it and wouldn't take his limbs away from his face. One good thing about that is that at least we know he has all of them. To make matters worse he was also in an awkward position. In the end we got lots of ok shots and only a few really good ones but I'm ok with that.
For those of you who don't know, UCBaby is a 3D ultrasound where you get a really detailed view of the baby. It's purely for fun so they won't do diagnosis of any kind except gender determination if you choose to. I will be the first to admit, it's pretty pricey and now that I've done it, I'm not sure it's worth the money. One thing I was really surprised about was that whole session isn't done in 3D. Most of it (at least for me) was done in the regular 2D format and when the tech saw a good opportunity, she went in to 3D mode and we got to see those views. And as cool as the 3D views are once you've seen the first 5 or 6 views of the face, you've seen it. My session went on for about 45 minutes because to her credit, the tech was really trying to get the baby to move so she could get some good shots without his hands and feet in the way. I also think that if you did the ultrasound earlier in the pregnancy you would see more full body shots and movement rather than just bits and pieces that you may not know what you're looking at. Anyway, I don't know if it was worth the money but I can say I'm happy I did it. I wouldn't bother doing it again though.
So without further ado, I introduce you to Yet To Be Named Baby Steeves!!!
I love this shot because you can see his little foot.
Only 8 short weeks till we get to meet him in person. I can't wait.
