Today was the BIG determination day.
Bob was sure it’s a boy, I’m thinking girl.
Bob is ticking me off and taking calls during the entire ultrasound.
What a beautiful baby. Measuring perfect. Long legs. Over a pound. Oh wait…w a i t. I see it. I turned to Bob and said, “looks like you’ll be paying for another wedding.” He looked at me, my mom laughed, and the tech finally says, “I’m tryin‘ reaaaal hard to find you a penis, but this baby is 100% girl”.
I did find out I had placenta previa, and a condition called SUA. Single Umbilical Artery. http://www.womens-health.co.uk/sua.asp
Basically, a reason to freak me out for the rest of my pregnancy, and for them to constantly monitor me. I was put on a high fat diet to be sure she’d gain weight. I was encouraged to stay off of GOOGLE and the internet.
Right, the first thing I did, GOOGLE. Big mistake!
