Still, however, trying frantically to get the place in order to accommodate. I’m sure though it’ll all fall into place; life has a funny way of doing that at times.

Stella in Space: Pictures from the Ultrasound II

My wife Leslie and i had our second ultrasound on Tuesday, June 23. Here are the pics to illustrate our experience.

Our little Stella is getting very big now into the third trimester / eighth month of pregnancy¬† so getting an overall body length pic was out of the question, instead the RN had to narrow it down to specific areas i.e., Stella’s head and feet. Check it out! Six weeks to go!!!
