Biggest Blog EVER!?!?

Well here goes the biggest blog so far....
I was going to seperate it in to two blogs but I decided that everyone has waited long enough for the first part of the blog so I rolled in all in to ONE BIG BLOG!!! Hopefully we don't expect this much blogging from me in the future!!
Part 1: Baby Girl Thomson has a name!!
The final name that we have decided on is...
Rylee Rose Thomson
After 7 long months of back and forth and lots of baby book names, we have decided on Rylee Rose Thomson and Paul swears he is not changing it again. So I am posting it and it is sticking!
Part 2: 3D/4D Ultrasound Pictures!!
We went to Peek of You yesterday which is an ultrasound place that specializes in 3D/4D ultrasounds. It was a great experience and the ultrasound technician was AWESOME. I would highly recommend this place to anyone! She confirmed it was still a girl and answered all my questions (unlike the crabby lady at my regular office!) I asked her about all 10 fingers and all 10 toes and she was set and finding them all!! We didn't but we know one hand is good!! Here are some of the cute pictures that I chose from the 67 that she took!

In this picture, you can see her big pouty lips that the ultrasound technician loved so much!!

Rylee Rose...not so happy. She is probably thinking "There goes my mom and her obsession with seeing my toes and fingers again! :o)

Hand by the face picture....she is not going to like to be swaddled!!

"There, are you happy mom?!? Are we done yet?" -Rylee

"Well too bad if we aren't!! I am!" -Rylee (tongue sticking out)

Who would have thunk?!?

So this is the best picture I could find to explain what exactly I was doing in order to get the sharp pain on the right side of my stomach to go away. There was only one crazy person...ME and I was laying on a comfy bed.
My pain in my stomach had been for about 3 days when I finally didn't know what to do anymore. I thought maybe it was the baby's foot or hand pushing on my skin. I had watched an episode of Baby Story one day when the baby boy on the show was born without four of its fingers. The doctor on the show said that it was probably due to the fact that it was pressed up against the mother and didn't have time to develop. Ever since then, let me tell you that my baby has had no peace and quiet! I will push and jiggle my stomach every now and then just so I know she is moving about!! (Is there such a thing as "Shaken Baby Syndrome" inside the womb? Hmmm....)
Anyway, these pushes and jiggles were not helping and the pain kept on coming so I thought if I layed "upside down" then maybe she would float a different way. Well Paul thought it was the funniest thing he ever saw and my sister informed me 2 days afterwards that there is no gravity inside the stomach. I never knew! Lesson Learned: NO MORE "BABY STORY" FOR ME!
Something to look forward to: My 3D/4D ultrasound on Sunday! I will post the pics as soon as I get home! Let's still hope she is a girl in there. We still don't have a girl name and I don't have another 7 months to negotiate a boy name with my picky husband! I bet Baby Girl Thomson is hoping that I see all 10 fingers and all 10 toes on Sunday so she can sleep peacefully for the next 2 months!
