So today was the day. The big reveal. I am 18 1/2 weeks along. We arrived on time, were seen a 1/2 hour late. Kids were all over the place and each had their own tantrum at different times. I was also in a bit of a bad mood due to "other" stuff, and the fact I hadn't had lunch yet. No matter! I get to find out what this little bundle is!
Baby was measured. Everything is looking good. Dr. put that ultrasound thing in the necessary area....and wouldn't you know, baby decided it was a good time to tuck itself up in to a tight corner and keep its legs crossed!! Oh yah, with umbilical chord tucked nicely between the legs! I moved to my left side, then to my right. We poked at little baby on my belly. " C'mon, uncross those legs." Bless the Dr., he tried really hard, but we were left with no definitive answer. So guess what? I get to wait another month. I did get a good look at the "hoo hoo" that was showing...and there was nothing "showing off" so chances are it could be a girl. I just want to hold all hope I have left that its a boy. So I will try really patiently to wait another month. Baby did wave HI. Here is the arm and hand.I got in the car afterward and had to cry. I was glad the baby is looking really good, but pretty bummed to leave with no answer. Alex is pretty sure its a girl, which I'm sorry, makes me also a bit bummed. I'm sure I'll get over it soon enough. I had to take myself through the McDonald's drive-through and wallow my Pregnant Bumm into a burger, fries, Dr.Pepper, and 3 cookies, just to stop my pitty-party! So I guess in a month, I will know.
