The cervix looks good and all restrictions regarding exercise and lovin’ up the husband have been removed. They don’t know what caused the bleeding, so hopefully it does not happen again or indicate an unforeseen problem.
So the u/s tech is a sweetie, but made it pretty clear that the request was for the cervix check and she really doesn’t go beyond the orders. I used my sweet-talkin’ ways to convince her otherwise! (I think she just had time to kill before the next appt.)
She’s showed me the babe moving around, checked the h/b (149) and pointed out a few things. It is amazing how easy it is getting to pick out various body parts at this point! So I said, “if you can tell what it is, you can tell me” and she says “I think I already saw.” HUGE CLUE. So I’m like “you must have seen a penis then!!!” She was just scanning around and certainly never focused on that area, so it just had to be a boy. She then showed me and yep, it’s a little boy in there.
Then we get a call that my husband is there. So we decide to pretend like I don’t know, so he thinks we found out together. That was kinda fun. He was hoping for a girl (he feels boys are hard on things, but has no idea what teenage girls are like!), but seemed pretty proud that he has a son on the way.
It makes everything seem so much more real. I know we have a long way to go still, but I almost feel like I’m really going to have my little guy in my arms some day!
