Boy or Girl?- 16 Weeks
Yesterday, I visited my doctor for my regular 3 week check up and also got an ultra sound. I was hoping to find out if the baby was a boy or a girl so I can finally begin shopping! However, it is clear to me that this baby does not like to cooperate. The legs we closed so tighly that you could barely see any space between them! The doctor attempted to jiggle the baby, hoping that it would change positions, and it did...crossing its ankles, making it impossible to see anything.
While it was exteremly dissapointing, all Damon and I could do was laugh. When I was pregnant with both DJ and Cameron they always had their legs open wide, but not this new addition. I seem to have a modest one on the way.
As a sidebar-DJ will no longer be joining me on my doctor's visits. He is way too smart and reads way too well. The last time we visited he began to look at the posters of babies being born and announced, "Mommy, I know how babies come out!" I told him that the doctor will cut the baby out of my tummy, that's not really true, I have never had a C-Section and hope not to this time either, but I thought the natural process was a bit advanced for a five year old.
Anyway, we'll be finding out for sure the baby's gender on April 22. I have the official anatomy ultrasound and will drink a liter of Mountain Dew if I have to to get this baby moving.
