My daughter Mary Rose was so feisty in the womb. Whenever they tried to find her heartbeat with the doppler, she ran to the other side of the uterus, so the nurses were chasing her around with the goop and the wand. I never left an Ultraound or appointment withoug getting goop all over my tummy, clothes and even my hair one time. Don't ask how, can't even begin to figure that one out. During her Ultrasound, she kicked her legs, yawned, and put her arm on her forehead, like she was saying "No more pictures Mom." I never got to hold her while she was alive because I was still under general anesthesia. I miss that I didn't get to smell her while she was alive. I also remember that the nurses kept telling me how pretty she was. She was 440 grams and 10 inches long. The link in my signature has her pictures.
