….stubborn little baby with crossed legs. Seriously! I can’t believe that I am the 1 in 10 women whose baby decides to be difficult during the anatomy ultrasound. I guess our little dumping made our mind up for us. We had been unsure if we really wanted to know the sex before the baby was born, but I suppose we have our answer. We have no choice now as I probably won’t be having any more ultrasounds.
The ultrasound technician tried everything from her bag of tricks to get the baby to change positions. After she measured what she needed, she let me empty my bladder to try to give the baby a bit more room to move around. Nothing. Then she had me walk around the room and poke my belly for a bit. Nothing. Then she had me lay on my left side, then my right side. Nothing! She had me cough. Nothing. She used her instrument to jiggle my belly to try to get the baby moving. STILL NOTHING!! She probably spent way more time with us than she was supposed to and then finally, we had to concede defeat.
I just have to say that I really hope this stubborn behaviour doesn’t have any indication on what we should expect when baby is born. I know I can be stubborn sometimes, but the last thing we want is a mini-me. LOL. No, I’m only joking, but it’s just an all around funny situation. Typical for my kind of luck.
Really though, in all seriousness, we are so happy. The baby is doing very well. Growing at a normal rate with a nice healthy heartbeat of 141 beats per minute. That is really all that counts. We want a beautiful healthy baby and it really doesn’t matter if it’s a boy or a girl.
