You're still the one...

We had our second anatomy scan this week, on Tuesday. Their intent was to get a better view of our boy's heart. The same lady who did the other one 4 weeks ago, did this one. But our defiant little boy was still faced inward, with his back on the outer edge! This time his head was downward and his feet were up top. He was laying right in the middle, just up and down-backwards. :) She showed us again that he's a boy, and said, "Well, I can't get him to turn. I'll get the other doctor." And with that, she left us alone. We were a little nervous that she had asked for a second opinion, I feel like that's never a good sign. But I trust that it really was to see if someone else could view the heart better and that they would surely tell us if anything were wrong. Right? sighh....

So the other woman comes in... she was very nice and liked to explain exactly what we were viewing on the monitor. She gave us some pictures:
Here he is looking at us!!

His little foot and leg bones! Love this one!

Yep, Mom, still a boy! The little plus sign indicates his boy parts :)
Oh my goodness, I love this little boy so much!

After she took all the measurements again, she told us he weighed 485 grams, or 1 pound, 1 ounce! So tiny! She told us that she saw nothing to cause concern, (but added that this, of course, doesn't promise perfection) and that he's growing great. Of course, her saying there was nothing to cause concern concerned me.. I'm just nervous, I want him to be perfectly healthy. All I can do is turn it all over to God and trust that he's crafting this baby into the little boy he's supposed to be!

Oh, and he's the size of a spaghetti squash now! :)
