Mystery Child in 4D!!!

One of my oldest and best friends Nichole made arrangements for us to go get a 4D Ultrasound. Her dad is Dr. Kerry Lowder who is one of the best OB/GYNs in Boise. He gave us 7 minutes of video footage (which I cant seem to figure out how to copy and publish on our computer!) and these Fab pictures. Apparently on the video you can see the gender, but despite watching it repeatedly we have all failed to see much more than shadows and an occasional limb! We will work on trying to get the video up, so all of you snoops who think they can read an ultrasound can take a close look and place your bets! (When he tried to see the sex he went back to normal 2D mode, so its not in 4D!) Anyway, you can see by the following pictures that I am giving birth to Gabe Junior. I cant see any traits from me in this picture, but I think the nose and shape of head and chin are ALL GABE! I showed my mom the pictures and shrieked "This baby looks nothing like me! Who's baby is this???" and she replied with a shrug, "I dont know...hopefully not Rosemarys."

No mother, lets hope not!!! 

PS - Can anyone tell if this baby has HAIR???? Im very concerned! Also, I think it looks like a boy baby, so Im sticking to my original premonition. Who else had these 4D shots taken? Did your baby match the picture?

Christy, your baby is so stinkin cute in the womb! I was afraid to get these shots done, but now I am a little curious. How fun! How are you feeling now that you are almost there? Maybe you are having a boy also! Your baby did look like a boy, but babies then again all look the same when they are born. Yay for babies!!!

What a sweet baby! You are growing it wonderfully :) Owen looked just like his 4D. His nose looked pretty morphed but luckily he looked nothing like Pinochio in person. Just FYI, you are making me want another baby, stop it.

These are incredible pictures. I never had them taken, but it looks like your baby has a tuft of hair! I can't believe its almost a month away!!

So cute!!! It is getting so close! I got those 4D pics and Grace looked just like them it is crazy! You could even see her massive cheeks in them!!!

When Dad came over tonight he wildly exclaimed that a little Gabe Jr. was on the way...we discounted his rants as the wishful thinking for a grandson until I logged on and saw the pics for myself! Your baby is certainly a Beal and not Rosemary's, so that's good news. And I think I've seen Gabe look exactly like this in that hot tub at the cabin! (Seriously- doesn't it look like your baby (boy?) is chillin' in a jacuzzi?! Which I guess he is sort of doing.) Anwyays, how exciting! Not to much longer until the great baby wait of 08 comes to an end! We can't wait- boy or girl it will be perfect.

I had these done too & it DID look like her. But my sister in-law went with me & got her baby's done & it looked nothing like him when he was born. So I don't know, from my experience it's been a toss up. I did blog about it when I was prego so you can see it for yourself & judge if you think it looks like Vanessa now or not. But just know, the real thing will look way better.
PS. Also they told me Vanessa had hair but I couldn't tell from the 3-D ultra sound at all. When she was bon she had a bit of fuss. That's all, no real hair like I imagined.

Stop worring about your baby being bald. He or She will more than likely go bald after a few months.

I agree with Anna Beals comments. I think the baby is a Beal. So much so that I got inspired

I see lots of beautifuly hair, and I can't wait to see pictures of you cute new little family!- Congrats again Cuz!

Hey Christy! He or she :) is super cute! I got these done with Avenleigh when I was around 30 weeks? You obviously can't tell exactly what they look like with the pictures, but now that Avy is out of my belly and I go back to those 4-D pics... she looks so much like them! (Even cuter though!) The fluid makes them look a little distorted. Anyways.. I think he looks like he has hair! You couldn't see Avy's, but she came out with a Blonde MOP on her head! (just to give you hope!)ha-ha. Hope all is well! How many more weeks? ~ Amy

Oh I love those pictures. I think it looks like a boy... Gabe will be in Heaven :) When we went back to swim with Macy a few days later he wanted to know where Gabe was before he got in.

Matt and Kelly Woodland said...

That is frighteningly 4D alright!!
I still think you have the cutest baby I have ever seen in utero...and I can assure you it will be the cutest baby OUTSIDE utero too!

The Cannons said...

Hey Christy,
I'm not sure if I mentioned this already but I just thought of something else I would take to the hospital with me next time, a boppy pillow. I had the hardest time trying to nurse Corbin in the stupid hospital bed. Anyway I just thought of that.
