the lazy baby

another ultrasound was done yesterday at 9:45am to check on the progress baby shrimp has been making. normally, an ultrasound can take anywhere from 15-30 minutes to take the baby's measurements, check the heart rate and see the developments. ours took 45 minutes.

why, you ask? because i have one stubborn and lazy kid floating about me.

even after massive amounts of prodding, poking and shaking my tummy, baby shrimp would not move his hands in order for us to see certain portions of his growth and nor will he move his legs (spread eagle, please...) for us to confirm what we've always known. the tech tried coaxing him to "move please" and even though she tried shaking my tummy more than enough times, he still was cocooned in there probably snoring away.

WHAT A LAZY BABY. and i have to sadly admit, that he takes after his mommy too well.

the good news though? that as of yesterday, he weights 2 lbs and 15 oz. and an even better news? is that he definitely is a HE!!!

got 11 more weeks to go!
