So as typical for our doctor's appointments, we waited about 30-40 minutes, which was excrutiating to me! We chit-chatted with the doctor and then it was down to business. He immediately went to the little heart beating away, and then spent probaby 10 minutes taking various measurments. Everything on the baby measured between 17 1/2 weeks-19 weeks, 2 days. This is right on with my due date, so the litte one is progressing right on schedule!
Okay, okay I've procrastinated enough. . . We're having A BOY! It is just awe-inspiring to see the live, wiggly little being inside of me that I can't really feel. And when I say wiggly, I mean it! IT was difficult for the doctor to get some good still shots because the little bugger was moving about so much.
More good news: My uterus has streched enough that my placenta is safely out of the way of my cervix! Hooray! This means I can go back to my yoga class--I am so ready, as are my aching back and hips! This also means a significantly less chance that I would need a C-section. Whew!
I'm going to stop there, but needless to say I am just over the moon to finally know the baby's gender, and most importantly that he's healthy! Let the shopping frenzy begin. . .
