I am not a patient person. When I make a decision, I tend to want to act on it right away so that I can move on with my life. So when I make the decision to wait, there are just all sorts of wrong associated with it.
We had our 20 week ultrasound today and we decided to have the technician put the gender of the baby in an envelope so that we could open it with our family on Halloween. It is a great idea, but it means that I will possess the information a full three days before actually looking at it. Did I mention that I lack patience??
I have been trying to talk Jeremy into peeking for about two weeks now, but he will have none of it. In fact, the technician not only put the results in a sealed envelope, she TAPED IT SHUT so that I couldn’t cheat. Wow, where’s the trust? (And that was one smart lady!)
The ultrasound went really well – this baby was way more cooperative than Carter ever was. We got a bunch of profile shots, got to watch the baby yawn and chew (that is the only way I can think to describe it – wasn’t really sucking, just moving its mouth around). We saw all five fingers and toes on both hands and feet and so much more. The baby moved around well and seemed way bigger than Carter. And we have an envelope with the gender and some pictures to confirm it.
The due date is still calculated for the 14th, but from the growth measurements, it might end up coming a little earlier. Of course this is a complete guess, so at the end of the day, who knows! I will scan and post photos of the ultrasound tonight, as well as take another profile pic of myself.
Wonder if I can steam tape off…
