No real measurements were taken. I’m assuming they are waiting for the anatomy scan to do that. Dr. M (another doctor at the practice) came in and scanned me very quickly. He just rolled over baby to eyeball it a few times and then smiled and said, “Do you want to know what it is?” YES!!!
He fussed with baby a bit, but baby was still sitting low in my pelvis so he said he would only be able to make a guess.
I made him write down his guess on a scrap of paper in an envelope. On my way out, my nurse stopped to chat. Then another nurse and then finally Dr. C. He asked if we knew the gender and when I told him it was only a guess, he pulled me back into the ultrasound room to verify.
He literally swiped over my belly twice and felt 100% confident in his decision. Then he opened the envelope, looked inside and nodded happily. Whatever Dr. M wrote down in my envelope, Dr. C agreed with!
What I could see was that baby had moved in the time I had left the room, so Dr. C had a much better view than Dr. M. What I could not make out was the gender. At least not for sure.
I don’t know how they can see anything in those grainy images!
So my sister has the envelope with its secret inside. 🙂 I cannot wait until the 30th!!! We are going to reconfirm whatever was written there at our anatomy scan just to be completely sure and go from there. This party is going to be so much fun!!! 🙂
I am concerned about our lack of commitment to a boy name and my dis-interest in boy bedding. I guess I need to get serious because this can go either way!
I found a crib set I really like and I think it will work well in the room.
Possible Crib Set
Such a huge responsibility!! I have a lot of thinking to do. What do you ladies think about these bedding sets?
Hope everyone is having a great week!! My Christmas vacation is so close I can taste it!!! :3
