The doctor said everything was looking good. That's all great news. We will do it all over again in three weeks and continue monitoring her growth. (I expect we will continue this pattern until she is born. It is all precautionary because of Birth Mom's own medical history and Ellie's small size.)
It's super exciting to see her on the screen each time there is an ultrasound. I get these little glimpses of how she is changing and what she's up to in there. Yesterday I got her see her sucking. Her little tongue was moving and the nurse said she was practicing sucking. Intellectually, I know babies do this in utero, but seeing Ellie do it made my eyes sting with tears. Such a simple thing is really so amazing.
She never did pose for a profile picture, but the tech managed this frontal shot of her face. For those who don't know what they are looking at... tilt your head to the right.
