Baby Update...or "Bupdate"
It's truly a bizarre notion that something as awesome as listening to your baby's heartbeat with the Doppler thingy can actually seem anti-climactic.
My wife and I had our latest appointment with the OBGYN yesterday and it went well. He said everything looks and sounds good. Which is fantastic. Really, it is. Don't get me wrong.
It's just that we were going in hoping vaguely for an ultrasound that might, just conceivably, reveal the baby's gender. This, we did not get.
So we're going back in a couple of weeks for the big 20-Week scan (which is actually going to be coming a few days early, but I'm not gonna quibble.) That's the one with which we should be able to find out if we need to buy pink clothes or blue. Because they don't, apparently, make much that's gender-neutral. Those thoughtless pricks.
Shit. That's what I think will happen to us next week, too. We have our 16 week OB appt and I'm telling myself we'll get an u/s and determine the gender, but in reality we'll probably just get plain old doppler and have to wait for the 20 week scan to find out.
Believe, it, TB.
Doesn't that suck? Doesn't it suck that what was formerly so thrilling is now a letdown? Don't you feel kind of like an ass for being disappointed? No? Maybe it's just me.
See now, we've been buying nothing but "gender neutral" stuff and not having that hard of a time at all. We hate the colors that are designated as "boy" or "girl" anyway.Post a Comment
Where are you looking?
Oh yea, and listening to the hearbeat? B.O.R.I.N.G.
