27 weeks and the 3D/4D Sonogram

We finally had our 3D/4D sonogram on Saturday.  We had looked forward to the getting to see both of our babies for weeks, and then things didn't really go as planned.  The sonogram center was extremely neat.  The room had a huge flat screen tv so that our parents could watch and then smaller flat screens around the room so that Tim and I could see as well.  I got to lay in a real bed with a head board and foot board, not just the uncomfortable doctor's table.  Everyone took their seats and looked to the nearest screen in anticipation. 
The first things we saw were Tayden's bottom and his boyhood.  The sonographer laughed and said that he was definitely showing off for the crowd.  This "showing off" continued for most of the next hour.  Brooklyn was facing downward so we could never get a shot of her face.  The few times we got close, Tayden's bottom would end up in her face - poor thing!  The sonographer had me turning to the left, to the right, and I even got up two different times and drank two bottles of cold water in the hopes that she would move.  We were able to get a few shots of Tayden's face, but not as close-up as possible, because he is underneath Brooklyn.  From what we could see, Tayden looks just like Tim and is no doubt a streaker.  Keep in mind he is also the one who waved to us before in a previous sonogram.  I am predicting that he will definitely keep us busy!  Brooklyn on the other hand seems to be content just relaxing and letting him steal the show. 
The sonographer did let us schedule another appointment in two weeks so that we can hopefully get some pictures of Brooklyn and closer pictures of Tayden.  It was definitely amazing to see the difference in the 2D and 3D technology.  Our parents patiently sat through the hour long peep show in awe of how advanced sonograms have become.  It was wonderful to see both babies moving around.  We are so excited that in less than 10 weeks we will be meeting them in person.  We can't wait!!!!

That is awesome! I'm sorry you didn't get a chance to see Brooklyn though. Hopefully the next time around will go as planned.
