I had THE BIG ultrasound today: All measurements and development is normal and good – and I did NOT find out the baby’s gender. Which wasn’t hard at all, except that now I feel totally weird because everyone in the doctor’s office knows, but I don’t. I kept wanting to say “you know, don’t you?” to all the nurses and doctor and technician. It was totally easy to keep myself in the dark when no one knew, but it is much harder now that it has gone from a simple unknown to a “secret” that some people know and others don’t. There’s some psychology, right there.
But regardless of the business downstairs, everything on the baby looks really great – we saw a lovely profile, and little hands and feet and all that good stuff. So there really is a baby in there – or so they tell me.
