Okay, I'm full of mixed feelings right now, so please bare with me!
Today (like 30 minutes ago), I had a regular appointment to check baby's HB, my weight & BP.. you know that kind of stuff; NO ULTRASOUND!! My DF worked today, which was no big deal because again, it was supposed to be a normal check up.... EHHH WRONG!! I was so NOT prepared for what just happened.
First of all, we were on team green to the finish line. We both wanted that surprise moment at the end, and at the very least if we did find out beforehand it would be TOGETHER. So, with that said, you might be able to guess what happened!!
While in the dr.'s office, my OB was checking for the baby's HB via dopler. She was having a really hard time finding it and decided to get the US machine out really fast, just to make sure she could at least see it and give me the all clear. I was fine with that, since I love getting little peaks at the baby. However, literally the second she put the baby on the screen, it was a FULL BOTTOM shot. There was no question at all as to the baby's gender... BOY!! I was shocked it was that simple and fast!! I didn't even get the chance to turn away when she got close to the legs.. it was just right there, plain as day. We had to search around with my last 2 children, and it certainly was not just a BAM, theres your answer.
Now, I'm trying to find a way to tell my DF. Should I just throw it at him when he gets home from work? Wait a while? Maybe just convince him to find out by our next US in a few weeks? IDK what to do?! I feel like I just stole a moment from him or something.. we were supposed to experience that together; not like that!! Not without him there. The whole thing just felt so blah, not like the build up and excitment I was hoping for. Just me, the dr. and a lame '..oh BTW, it's a boy" moment. I'm afraid he will be sad or mad I found out. I know it was an accident.. but still, I cannot help but feel this way.
If you got this far, thanks for listening! I feel better already..
