Okay well, before I give it away, can I just say that we almost didn't get to see? The baby had it's leg blocking the view of ANYTHING down there. The doc kept trying to jiggle it to move, but ....nothing. Doc went to do some computer work, came back and tried again. Baby finally moved it's leg. They weren't spread wide open, but I have a shot....and...
it's a GIRL
I'm kind of hesitant to really believe that... she didn't get a very good shot, but ...on Alissa's the "boy"ness is very apparent.
Everything is good, I'm not dehydrated anymore and everything was measuring right on. I have pics, I'll post them tomorrow.
Oh my gosh Jessica! I am soooooo excited for you! I KNEW IT!!!!
Yes, I knew that mine was a boy before she even said so because I could see his boy parts sticking out, so I am thinking that if there were no obvious boy parts sticking out, you got your girl, Mama!!!!
Are you excited? How about your DH?
Congrats on your little girl!
I kept thinking I was seeing boy parts. Then she pointed out that the baby had it's mouth WIDE open...and I was like where?? She showed me...and LMAO I thought that was his feet! So, "obvious" boy parts maybe weren't so obvious when I can't tell what we're looking at...lol
But, she had her leg in the way and I think i kept thinking her leg was a gigantic penis LOL... I dunno, i just "knew" it was a boy! When she focused in on between the legs, after she moved a bit, I kept waiting for something to be there and ...there's just not. But then the doc said, "I always say save your receipts"... so that threw a bit of "What if" down in there. I'd be happy either way, just wish she had of spread 'em a little more so we could be sure. I'm sure that'll be the last time I ever wish my daughter would spread her legs LMAO
DH is excited I think, but he doesn't ever "show" excitement. He texted everyone he knew before we even left the office. My mom is ecstatic. I'm happy. I'm kind of floored it's not a boy, but happy nonetheless. I'm kinda bummed though and I don't know why. This should be a super happy moment and ..something is holding me back.
I'm so so so SOOOO excited for you to have a GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'r gonna LOVE LOVE LOVE having your princess! Have you thought of names???
I know that holding back feeling just a tad.. when DD was 16 weeks, they did a scan and said pretty sure it was a boy.. So for a while, I had my hopes up that it was a boy! And loved and got used to the idea.. it was awesome! Then they flipped it at my 21 weeks scan and she was - without a doubt - a SHE. It was like.. But.. but.... When your mind is set on one thing and you're told another, it can take a bit of adjustment.. but I bet within a week you and DH will be haming it up with your GIRLY GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Awesome, mama.. congrats again.
With both of my boys it took me a minute (and by minute, I mean maybe more like an hour or two) to get myself good and excited after hearing "it's a boy." Don't know, why, just took a little bit of time to process and get used to the idea. I'm sure that by tomorrow you're going to have yourself all worked up with excitement about knowing that's your little girl in there.....
It's true that any of us could get a "false diagnosis" (lol, for lack of a better term, since gender is not a illness, lol). It does happen every once in a while. But I bet you are in the clear if they felt sure enough to tell you.
How did the rest of it go? I'm guessing that everything looks great.
Everything went okay. Doc looked like she was about 20 LOL but she took many measurements and some of the wand movements weren't so nice in my squishy tummy haha. And I finally gained some weight!! A whole HALF OF A POUND! LOLOLOL
By the way, happy 21 weeks lady!
Why thank you!
