Baby Spencer pictures and videos!  
He's a big boy now! Dude, he weighs approximately 5lbs, 11oz!!! DUDE. Unreal, seriously.

My due date is like 5 weeks away. I approximately 5 weeks I will be a mommy. I still have a hard time believing it.

The radiologist says that my amniotic fluid level is "normal low" which can mean trouble if it gets lower. Therefore my babydoc wants to see me every week from now on. Everything is FINE, but we just have to monitor the situation to make sure that it doesn't get worse. But no worries, Spencer is a big healthy boy and he's not in any trauma whatsoever. Other than the fact that it's difficult to take photos of him because there's not much fluid in front of his face, we are right as rain.

Baby Spencer has situated himself with his head down by my uterus. That explains all the kicking he's been doing to my ribs! Seriously, this boy is a madman!
He's gotten to be so big that you can't get sonogram pictures of his entire body. I have pics and videos of little bits and pieces of him.

Here's a video of his little face. Moving his lips for the audience already!

Baby Spencer's heartbeat. You can see the four chambers of the heart and everything!

We have more videos than this, but these are actually the best ones, considering that we couldn't focus on much of his body at once.

How about some pictures?

This is a picture of the top of his head. Yes, according to the nurse, he has a lot of hair already.

His wee little face - I know they aren't too clear, but like I said, it was difficult with the lack of fluid surrounding his face. He's sort of smushed at this point.

Here's a little profile shot of him. What a darling.

Baby boy parts! Again!!! (just for reassurance hehe)

These last pics were the nurse's attempt to give me some 3D shots. They were difficult to get because the 3Dimaging picks up all the mass...so if there's not much fluid, you'll get lots of stuff in the way of his little face. (stuff=Shonna's uterus - which I just know you were all dying to see)

Look, one of his little feet!

The rest of these are his face. You have to peer through my UTERUS to see him, but LOOK AT MY LITTLE BOY!

What a long long day it's been. I'm going to bed now. I hope Spencer lets me sleep a lot tonight. I need it!

I'm going to post pictures of the NURSERY (OMG) probably tomorrow. If I don't get around to it, I'll do it when I get back from San Antonio on Sunday/Monday.

I can't wait to post the nursery pictures. It is a very happy little place, indeed. Complete with moons and stars. :D

I am READY for him to be here, no doubt.

Ah, so precious. He's already adorable.

I showed my 3 year old her ultrasound photos for the first time the other day (it was a high risk pregnancy with heaps of complications, so I had one million ultrasounds!) and she is staring in awe going "what do you mean...that's ME inside YOU????" Pretty priceless.

Oh that's the cutest story. I can't wait to show him these. What a reaction he'll give, I'm sure. <3

Here's to praying that my pregnancy doesn't turn high risk (what with the low amniotic fluid).
Queen of the Gnomes: Hemmy: Pure Joygardengnomegeek on February 22nd, 2007 05:41 pm (UTC)
Crossing fingers and toes that everything will be fine with the low amniotic fluid, as I am sure it will be. He's already such a big boy, even if he does come early, I am sure he will do just great.

And just as a note not to worry...my pregnancy was high risk from the beginning for both baby and me. We both went through some rough times. But we are both just fine now and I have a beautiful wonderful daughter.

Everything is going to be GREAT! :-)

AWWW! =D ♥ big boy lol

Glad to hear everything is good, I cannot wait for him to be born, seriously.

♥ ♥

He is a big boy! LOL Seriously though, the nurse told me he's in the 62% on babies (at this point in the pregnancy, size wise). Just a little bigger than average, which is a good thing. Especially if it turns out that I have to have him early for any reason, he's already a viable size. That makes me so happy.

i like how the one is labeled "boy." for some reason that amuses me.

alas, i have no spencer icons. :( snuggly jpop boys will have to do.
I AM  YOUR WIFE!: Spencer - AWWW!eckerlilas on February 22nd, 2007 01:27 pm (UTC)
There really is. Unbelievable. :P

It's labelled BOY because those are his boy parts. Hahaha. XD

I'll probably have babySpencer icons someday. OMG I'm going to be a MOM!

I can deal with snuggly jpop boys.

Wow. He's so BIG! I can't believe that in only five weeks, he'll be here! It seems like just yesterday, you had JUST found out days before and we were hanging out! INSANITY!!!!!!

Wow, he's so big and cute! AWWWW!!!

Oh, and I didn't get a chance to say thank you for the rose on Valentine's Day, in all the...stuff that was going on. But I just wanted to let you know that it put a smile on my face and thank you! ♥
I AM  YOUR WIFE!eckerlilas on February 22nd, 2007 01:30 pm (UTC)
I'm excited that he's this big already. It's a good sign that he's getting to be a chubby little dude. The doctor tells me that means I'm doing my job. *beams with pride*

And yes, I remember vividly when I found out and then we were in Vegas and just GAH! Yes, insanity indeed.

You are so so welcome, love. I know y'all needed a little something. I felt like I really needed to spread the love that day, regardless of whether it was Valentine's Day. <3

OH MAN, BABY SPENCER, I AM SO EXCITED. he already weighs more than i did when i was born! and is already made of awesome! \o/
I AM  YOUR WIFE!eckerlilas on February 22nd, 2007 01:32 pm (UTC)
I'm excited too. And really just ready to get him here. He may still keep me up at night, but for completely different reasons! LOL

He only weighs one pound less than I did when I was born. He better not get too big though. I'm not a very big person, I don't know how big a baby I can handle!

Laura: butterflycupcaked on February 22nd, 2007 12:28 pm (UTC)
Shonna these are beautiful. Missing you both lots!
I AM  YOUR WIFE!eckerlilas on February 22nd, 2007 01:32 pm (UTC)
Thanks Laura! You are so sweet. We miss you too, so much.

Even though I'm not chatting online much I come on and lurk, mainly to spot Spencer (THIS WAY SPENCER LOOK THIS WAY OHMYGOD AWESOME). Oh, I can't wait til he gets here, and I can hardly imagine how you feel. *Hugs*
I AM  YOUR WIFE!eckerlilas on February 22nd, 2007 02:14 pm (UTC)

Spencer-Spotting! <3

I'm glad you stopped in to say hi and take a look at my little boy. Amazing, isn't he?

It's hard to explain how I feel. Excited. Ready. Nervous. Tired. In love already. I can't wait.

oh my gosh! that is so amazing! wow...you must be so excited! I hope that everything continues to go smoothly for you!
I AM  YOUR WIFE!eckerlilas on February 22nd, 2007 02:24 pm (UTC)
I am very excited! And it's been really cool being able to post these sonogram photos and videos here all through my pregnancy too. Kind of like a journal of my pregnant life. I don't post about it every day, but it's neat to have a log of the memories, you know?

And my flist is so awesome and supportive. <3

Thanks for you kind thoughts. I'm really just ready for the little guy to be here already!

Y'all will get so tired of me posting pictures of this kid! LOL This is just the beginning!
astros_junkieastros_junkie on February 22nd, 2007 02:58 pm (UTC)
Oh please...who would get tired of that! Enjoy the pregnancy while it lasts. All my stepmom could say after my sister was born was "I'm so glad she's finally here, but sometimes I miss just knowing she's inside of me."

It's really cool that you'll have these memories and you can look back on it and remember this time fondly. It's kind of like an informal baby book!
