That’s right folks I will still be the only girl in the household and I am totally excited about that! Last Thursday we had our 15 week appointment and I was really hoping that they would be able to tell what we are having. You see, the hubs is going to be out of town for our next appointment and I really wanted him to be there when we found out! I also really wanted to start planning and I felt like I couldn’t do that till we knew the gender. And my curiosity was killing me!!
First I have to say that I totally love my Dr! He is very laid back and never makes me feel dumb for the crazy questions I ask him. After I finished the dreaded part of the appointment (the scale) I went in the room and waited with the Hubs for the doc. I started getting nervous because I really wanted to know. When the doc came in one of the first things he asked us was whether we wanted to find out the gender. After I enthusiastically told him yes he said it just depending on the position of the baby.
One thing before I go on, for some reason ever since the last appointment the hubs and I really thought it was a boy. So much so that I kept referring to the bambino as a he. I really didn’t care what we were having I just really wanted to know.
So back to the dr’s appointment. He started the ultrasound and guess what we were greeted with??? the back of the bambino’s head. That’s right..the little bugger had his back to us! He does have a lovely spine though :) I was really disappointed and the doc tried to see if he could see anything but no luck :(
Hope was not lost though…
The doc said that if we were really motivated he could do a vaginal ultrasound since it looked like that might be the right angle. I told him to bring it on..we were very motivated! Right away we could see the legs and then he spread them and we all saw it was defiantly a boy! Believe me, there was NO question :) It was really funny because the doc was like “Wow, he is pretty big for only being 15 weeks”, apparently we have a very well endowed little boy and the hubs couldn’t be more proud :)
It is such a relief to know and this weekend I finished registering.
Don’t worry I didn’t forget about the second half of the Maui recap..it has been a crazy week :)
