Week 22 I go back in for her to try again. I should have known when I saw her, we wouldn't get anywhere. Once again, she was cold and quiet and wasn't able to see the spine. Now, I'm not a ultrasound tech and I don't get paid the big bucks but I could see the spine! Again, she tells me she couldn't get any good pictures to print one for me and she couldn't tell the gender but she is guessing it's a girl. Guessing? Why the hell do we pay for all this great technology if she's gonna guess? Her logic, again, is because I already have 2 girls. Well, gee, why didn't I think of that? She tells me again that my fluid is low and I watch her put it in the chart. When I see the doctor he tells me it's not dangerously low, I should just be sure to drink more water that usual.
So, I have to go back on New Year's Eve to have another ultrasound so they can see the spine and maybe get the gender. If I have her again, I am going to scream but I am not hopeful there will be 2 techs since it is NYE. If I don't find out (with a picture!) then I am going to just chalk it up to Baby #3 wanting to be a surprise and go with it. So few things in life are surprises anymore, why not?
Hope everyone is well and enjoying the holiday season. Can you believe 2013 is just 3 weeks away?
