Ultrasound today

I am sick. I woke up with a post-nasaly thing and my eyes feel like they are going to bug out of their sockets. Today is better, though. Heck, even yesterday got better after food stayed down. We got a blizzard like spring storm. After the rain/ice stopped falling, we got about 4 inches of snow that turned to slush on the ground. Oh yeah, and then it froze solid. Yay, spring!

Today we are going in for our second ultrasound. I am excited. We should be able to sex to baby today! Provided that he co-operates. I suddenly feel a little jittery too. For Mark we weren't going to find out. I had my heart set on a girl. I KNEW it was a girl. And then we found out that it was a boy. It was quite a shock to my system. It took a couple of weeks to get used to the idea. But then I was so excited about a boy. Now, I am not sure what it is. But I really want it to be another boy. I will let you know.

My uterus is up into my ribs already but they still want me to flood myself with water and not pee beforehand. I hate that. One ultrasound, I was in tears because I was so afraid that if I laid down I would pee.

Gabriel is getting off of work at noon today, so we can run down to the clinic. We also have about a zillion other errands to run. I just discovered that my local library has their catolog on-line. I usually request items and just pick them up. It saves so much time. And now I can request them from my home. I love the library.

To get my attention Mark has started to pat my arm and say, "ma" and sometimes "mum". :)

Oooh, how exciting!!!
I hope baby co-operates. I could not wait either & found out for N as well.
However, my doc told me for the 2nd ultrasound I didn't need to drink any water as the baby was big enough. Just drink what you feel you can handle & if they ask tell them what they want to hear.
good luck & I'll be checking in on you to find out what you're having.
Sending you blue vibes!!!

Oh I do hope you managed to find out the sex of baby :) I can't believe they still want you to fill up your bladder. Gosh, that's just not fair to a pregnant woman!
