As I posted yesterday, I went into my 20 week Ultrasound expecting to learn what gender my baby is. Despite the fact we would be telling the technician that we didn’t “want” to know, I knew I would find out.
When we went for Mr. Boy’s ultrasound, nearly 2 years ago, I saw that he was a boy as SOON as the ultrasound began . . . that child, much like he is now as a 19 month old, was NOT shy about showing off his wee manhood.
(sigh . . . just one more way boys are wayyyyyyy different than girls)
But THIS child is either incredibly modest or is getting paid off by his/her Daddy to keep his/her gender information to his/her self.
The Ultrasound Technician just smiled as I had her pause on this baby lower half and pelvic area . . I think she was in the pay-off scheme as well. I think she was DELIBERATELY giving me craptastically bad angles so that I couldn’t learn ANYTHING.
I ended up knowing only that I have a completely whole, healthy baby.
Knowledge for which I am overwhelmingly thankful — as much as I wanted to know the baby’s gender, I was so nervous that we would receive bad news at the appointment. Recently, some friends in my online due date mommy group have received such news: damaged spines, dangerously low amniotic fluid, hearts with holes . . . I was terrified I would find myself joining this group of sad mommies.
Thank the Lord for a healthy he-she. I’ll take not knowing the gender in exchange for having a healthy, healthy baby.
P.S. Any gender guesses based on these shots?
