I am unsure when I will stop worrying every time I go to the doctor’s office. But every time, I have a sudden panic that something will be wrong.
Yet again, I was proved wrong.
At my cervix check, everything looked good and it is standing pat (or closed tight?) at 4. But it’s amazing how now with the dildo cam, you can barely see any of the baby. And a word to the wise, it’s great being the first ultrasound patient of the day at my OBGYN except for the fact that the dildo and goo was the coldest I’ve ever experienced…
Then the tech switched to an ultrasound, just to take measurements and check on my placenta too. While the placenta is still mostly covering my cervix, it has moved in four weeks, which the tech said was great and it should continue to move. Yay!
She also measured my amniotic fluid level, which was good. As well, she measured the baby. I’m 16w2d and it’s measuring at 17 weeks with a heartbeat of 148! She told me not to freak out though, it’s not a crazy huge baby. We’re sitting only in the 67 percentile…
Then she asked us if we wanted to know the sex… I looked to my hubby and we both chimed in yes. And she showed us the little money shot. “There’s the scrotum and there’s the penis…”
Yep, a BOY!
I’ve had dreams and thought from the beginning it was a boy but I had a 50-50 shot, right?!
So we’re thrilled.
She also pointed out the stomach and empty bladder, which apparently recently was emptied..
But I am so so happy and thanking my lucky stars for this. Now if only my double fup would turn into that perfect preggo belly I want!
And I have just another two week wait until my next appointment and then two weeks until another cervix check. But I don’t mind. It means I get to hear or see my babe every two weeks. Love it.
