31 weeks 2 days

Had our 3D/4D ultrasound yesterday!  Penelope was being pretty stubborn at first.  She just kept showing us the back of her head. Which is covered in hair! =] She also reassured us that she is still a girl which was comforting, lol.  I was told to drink something to get her moving before the ultrasound so I drank some Mt. Dew but she didn't care.  She wasn't too wiggly.  I went to the bathroom and shook her up some and she did move.  The pictures we got of her face were profile shots.  She wouldn't look at us straight on so the technician said she could reschedule me to come back with no charge.  So I'm going back on Thursday and hopefully she will let me see her whole face.  Not sure if Josh is going or not since work for him is about to get busy. She is also head down, so that's good news.  She kept sticking her tongue out at us like, 'Haha, I'm not showing you the other side of my face no matter how much you poke me!' Silly baby.
