Yesterday we had the big anatomy ultrasound. I realize the doctor how more to look at than just determining if the baby is a boy or a girl but I was already anxious enough going into the appointment so I could hardly stand how long it was taking to find out. The technician started at the head and worked her way down. We got to see the baby's profile, even though we couldn't see the baby's face because the hands were in the way most of the time.
Then she moved on down checking out all of the organs we could see. Everything looked good and it always reassuring to see or hear the heartbeat and know that everything is working as it should be. Apparently, I do a good job at growing humans. When we got down to the legs, I knew we would be finding out soon but I got a little worried when I saw the feet sitting so close together that we weren't going to be able to tell.
But I guess those technicians know what they were doing because she was able to get a pretty clear shot of the baby showing off what it was.
Yep, it's a boy! We were a little surprised because we had been thinking girl all along but it looks like I am destined to be surrounded by males again just like I was growing up. I think Maverick was the most disappointed to find out it was a human baby and not a puppy like he had been hoping for. Now that we know, the shopping can begin.
