We got to the hospital for my ultrasound around 10. I was told my appt was at 10 am, but apparently it was in the system for 9 am. Dh was not happy and I got upset. They said if we waited they would try to squeeze us in but they were all booked up.

So we waited and about 10:40 am, I was called back. The tech said she'd do what she could now before her 11 am appt came in. Then after that appt left she said she would do the rest of the measuring she needed. I was so thankful she did that for us. They could have said to call and reschedule.

Baby looked perfect. I declined further testing for Downs and such, but she said the baby looked perfect so no worries there. That was cool she let me know anyway. It was never a worry for me though. During the first time she had me in the room, baby was almost curled in a ball and would not straighten out! She was poking my belly (kind of hard!) to get baby to straighten out and he or she just did NOT want to cooperate lol. But the tech did get some stuff she needed. Then she brought dh and ds in to reveal the gender.

After that her 11 am appt showed up, so we went out in the waiting room and called/texted everyone the news and I peed and walked around a bit in hopes to straighten baby out so she could get the rest of her measurements she needed. Probably 10 or so minutes later I was called back in and it all worked! Baby was laying straight and not moving as much, I'm guessing trying to sleep probably lol. The first time baby was a maniac in there, kicking, flailing. It was funny and so cute!

Then she brought dh and ds in again to show some more stuff on the baby to them. We got some awesome profile photos and one of baby sucking it's thumb. Along with two gender photos too.

I am so so so happy she fit us in. I know I said that, but really. She made our day.

Oh and since I know I wrote all of this without revealing the gender...hehe just to keep you in your toes...




I am posting up the gender photo, profile photo and thumb sucking photo right after I post this to make sure you look!

OH and I forgot. The baby is measuring a week further, so instead of 20 weeks today (by my lmp) I am 21 weeks. They won't change my due date for less than 9 days, but I am going by what she measures!
