I was surprised that once we started telling people that we were pregnant, the first question almost everyone asked was, "Are you going to find out?"
Not 'when are you due/how far along are you' or 'are you feeling alright' or 'are you excited', but 'are you going to find out'. And that's actually how they ask it (as opposed to "Are you going to find out if it's a boy or a girl?"). If you are our parents, you probably followed up that questions with, "I hope it's a girl." No pressure of course.
Our 'big' ultrasound (aka anatomy aka morphology aka level II) was supposed to be next week, but with switching doctors, we got that switched too and it's tomorrow now. It will have been 10 weeks since we saw this kid last! And I'm excited that it's now going to be at the University's MFM group and I'm really familiar with them since their u/s techs filled in after my RE's regular tech quit. They had told me that their are big flat screen monitors on the wall for the patients to watch instead of crooking our necks trying to peak at the machine. My SIL had to have them do an extra scan and said that it's a lot nicer than the setup at the hospital she was using.
And then the big question, boy or girl? We're going to find out if we get a peak, but lately I have been feeling like I really don't care if I know or not. Which is a pretty big change, because I had been really gung ho about knowing, but now, eh. Truly, if everything else is looking good, I don't care if we don't get a peek. In fact, a significant portion of me would rather not know. But the practical side knows it will be nice to plan accordingly.
Either way, we're still really looking forward to tomorrow.
Me and hubby stepped into the "Gene Machine" many years ago to see what our future children might look like. Considering that it's a joke anyhow, I'd still say that it appears that things will turn out ok. So, for your viewing pleasure, our potential future son or daughter.
