So we went into the doctors office today, for our mid pregnancy ultrasound. Chubby cheeks... check. Spine... check. Arms and legs... double check. Sex of the baby... hey, where are the goods? Gah, I've been telling baby all week that today was the big day! Over and over again, I ask "are you a baby brudder, or a baby seester??". I thought I was pretty clear about everything, but, apparently baby isn't controlled by finger pokes and high pitched voices like I originally thought. Instead, baby was breech, and not spreadin' those legs for anything. At first I was extremely disappointed, almost to the point of flooding hormonal tears. I've been waiting on this day for months. After today, I'd finally be able to decorate the bedroom, something I never got to do with Eleanore. I'd be able to start picking out clothes, making blankets, doing all of those "I'm going to be a mom and I'm excited!!" things that I've been anxiously awaiting. I had 2 bedroom themes all picked out and ready to go. We've got a mountain of baby girl clothes boxed up in the garage that were either going to come out to play, or stay tucked away until the next pregnancy. So now what? We'll have another ultrasound in 10 weeks, but... if we're going to wait that long, I say we just wait it out until baby finally makes his or her big appearance. So that's what we're going to do. We're going to wait!!
