Had my Appt today...

We all went (DH, both girls) but when we got there the tech said the kids couldn't come in until the end because the appt was so long (40 minutes) so we said okay. I told her we wanted to find out the sex if possible and asked if we could find out at the end. She said that was fine. So we did all the measuring (most of the baby measures 21 weeks 4/5 days) except the head and legs were measuring 22 weeks ha ha. So maybe I'll have another tall big headed kid (LOL!)

Anyway while the tech (who seemed annoyed that we brought the kids) was getting measurements and she went to LO's legs I swore I saw boy parts! So I got real excited. Then DH and the kids came in and she was showing off baby's face and heart beat (144) and then she goes to the legs and...

I was RIGHT! A BOY!

DH got a grin plastered on his face lol. Only sad part is she didn't print out any pics of the money shot. We got a lot of pics but all of his profile or face. I'm happy though (minus the whole I have to pee throughout it all ha ha).

We're excited and glad baby measured good. Monday I got in for an appt to make sure everything checked out good (for some reason they won't tell us until a few days later).

Awwwe. Congrats on your perfect little boy! This is becoming a boy heavy board!! We ought to be due for some girls soon, I think. That sucks that the tech acted annoyed about the kids coming. I think if they are well behaved and you have an adult with you to supervise them there should be no issue with it!

Here when the do the u/s, it's a tech who does it isn't allowed to tell you anything but what it is they are doing, so if anything is wrong they can't say anything. They just do the u/s and send it to the doc. You have to wait until your next appointment to find out if everything measured correctly. At mine I watched the tech's face closely to see if she appeared concerned and when she would measure something it would show on the edge of her monitor. As far as I could tell, everything seemed fine but I won't find out for sure until my next appt.

Yeah that's how is it here too with not knowing until the next appt. The lady had a very emotionless face lol so I couldn't read her. I go back Monday morning to see how everything checks out.
