Tomorrow's the Day!

Oh boy (or oh girl)! Tomorrow is my ultrasound appointment where we're supposed to find out the sex of the baby and I'm so excited. I just hope the little one cooperates because I don't think I can wait any longer! This is no time for modesty, sweetie - show us what you've got (or don't got)!

I had never even considered the possibility that we may go to the appointment and leave without knowing until a co-worker of mine who is just a few weeks further along than I am recently had her ultrasound. She told me that due to the fetal positioning they were unable to make a certain determination on the baby's gender. Basically, the baby kept moving around into awkward positions and wouldn't give them a clear shot of the genitals. The ultrasound tech said she was fairly confident the baby is a girl, but not positive. They told her she would have to wait 3 more months before they could do another one!

I looked into it and it's definitely more common than I would have guessed. In some cases the baby is just moving too much to get a clear look, and in other cases the baby is actually asleep in a cross-legged position so that the genitals are hidden from view.

I keep joking that if the baby doesn't want to show us the goods tomorrow, he or she is grounded until he or she is seven months old.

I have two little girls and we had no trouble finding out either time. Our first ultrasound tech explained that we were looking for the hamburger sign (a girl) or a turtle (a boy). So I hope your little guy or gal cooperates tomorrow and you get to see the hamburger or turtle!
