So, copying & pasting from an email for you all to read:
First of all, i walked in there & the u/s tech was the same one who did my horrible ultrasound after i had lost baby Hope - ugh... It was in the other opposite corner of the city & so i never ever would have thought i'd see that guy again. Lame. Gave me a yuck feeling to start with, but i managed to get over it.
AND, he outright told me the sex without warning!!!!! So, there goes all my agonizing about finding out! When i told everyone that i knew when we got out to the vehicle, they all decided they wanted to know - BUT, they want to keep it just our family’s secret till the baby comes... (Cai’s idea, wouldn’t you guess?) i don't know if we'll be able to keep it a secret, but i'm game if they want to try. (Can you imagine mollen & charter keeping a secret for FIVE months??) Besides, i know u/s can be wrong, so i always doubt even when i find out!
Babe was measuring a few days ahead (i don't believe that for a second... i know this will be a feb baby)... & all looked good. My glimpses of the baby were very very very short - i felt really rushed & couldn't see very well from laying on the table, but i'm pretty sure we have a cutie pie on our hands. You should have seen that cute little heart beat just givin' er. Sweet little wave too (no offer, or opportunity to buy pics either...) gorgeous little legs all tucked in with bum in the air... breech... hopefully that'll change... Anterior placenta (explains my faint kicks i've been getting... bummer! but, it's nice & far away from my cervix & that's more important).
I’m feeling a lot more confident, knowing that all looks great & seeing the teeny one on the screen.... *yay*. & yet, strangely patient! Now, on to the exceedingly difficult task of thinking of names... (this makes me think it was a good idea to know that intimate detail as now we’ll only have to agonize about 1 name instead of 2).
