U/S update!

So I went yesterday morning for my ultrasound... doc wanted to check and make sure I was as far along as I thought counting from my LMP. The U/S tech said baby looked perfect and healthy, "her" little heart rate was 160 BPM! She let us watch for a long time and we saw baby kicking her little legs and moving her arms around, it was the most beautiful thing in the world! I'm just so happy that baby is healthy, and I was right on for how far along I am... 9 weeks and 4 days as of today, EDD is December 3! Now I just have to hold out for 9 more weeks to find out the sex! Biggrin

I'm so nervous that I don't even want to find out the sex, I just want it to be a surprise, but DH is being a butt about it and he wants to know. I know there's no way that he can know and me not know, so I guess he'll get his wish... I really want another little girl though! :rolleyes:

I had friends in the same situation, so the mom had the u/s tech write down the sex and put it in a sealed envelope. She handed it to her DH and told him that it was for him, and what he did with the envelope would show her just how much he respected her... he was afraid to open the envelope, and gave it back to her a week later! LOL!

Now my DH would be ripping into that sucker instantly!:rolleyes:

Then again, you could always just NOT take him to the appt.....

LMAO I had thought about that, too! I told him as we were waiting for the last U/S and discussing the sex, that I just wouldn't tell him when the appt was! He was like, "Oh yes you will!" I swear, these men think that they're in control or something... will someone please break the news to them!! :director:

For a fleeting moment I thought "Maybe we will let this baby be a surprise" Then I came to my senses and realized that it would drive me insane not knowing!!
