So most of you have probably already heard me tell this story, but I thought I would share it with the rest of you. Our third visit to the doctor was on March 26th. It was the day to find out if the colors are pink or blue! We were so nervous. We go to the appt, and we were the doctors last patient, which I don't know if it really affected anything. The baby wasn't budging. The doctor did all the measurements to make sure the baby was ok, and after ten minutes or so he tried poking my belly a few times to try to move the baby so we could find out. (With the baby being so stubborn, that should have been our first clue it was a girl.) But there was no luck with the doctor :( I know he tried a couple of minutes poking my belly, but I also think that since we were his last patient, he was ready to clean up and go home. He said we would schedule me 4 weeks out to do another ultrasound. We then went to my doctor to do the check up. (My doctor doesn't do the ultrasounds in the office, another doctor does). After we made the appt's for 4 weeks out, I asked the receptionist if we could bump up the ultrasound appt since there is no need to wait 4 weeks. Unfortunately she couldn't. I left the hospital pretty upset. I was 18 1/2 weeks along, and fully expected to find out that day what we were having.
