So Heather, the baby, and myself went back to the doctor for our reprise of the 18 week sonogram. And wouldn't you know it, Baby Thiel was once again in no mood to be photographed. The technician spent at least 45 minutes pushing and poking Heather's stomach in order to get all of the necessary measurements. Heather had to roll from her back to one side then to the other so that we could get all of the required images. Eventually, reinforcements had to be called in to get that last crucial heart image. A second technician was called in to try her hand at poking my wife in the belly with the ultrasound wand. But all seemed to be well, the baby weighs (according to the magic ultrasound device) 1 pound and 2 ounces. And it seems to be on pace at this point in it's development. However, when all the dust had settled and the doctor had the opportunity to review the results, there are a few more images that she would like to see. So there will be an upcoming third try for our little growing bundle to pose for the camera. Stay tuned.
