Today, we went for our "early ultrasound" as we did not have a precise due date. As we waited to see the technician that would give us our first glimpse of our developing bundle of joy, I could feel the pressure in my bladder building by the minute. Once in the ultrasound room, the technician explained what was about to happen. She explained that she would have to apply lots of pressure to get a good view of the fetus. I figured, "short term pain, for long term gain (i.e. have a defined due date). At first she had difficulty finding the baby, then she spotted the amniotic sac.
