D/A Update... exciting and inconclusive!

Haha... really, it's both. I had a routine OB appt yesterday afternoon where I found that I'm still 5 lbs under my pre-pg weight (WOOP WOOP!) and my BP and stuff is still all normal/happy/good.

Can I just start this next part by saying that I seriously LOVE my OB this time around? I'm seeing a different one and she's AH-MAZING.

Instead of whipping out the doppler and rushing me through the appt (like my last OB) she almost always wheels in the portable u/s machine. Yesterday she said "I know your partner's not here, but... do you maybe want to try to see what you're having?" I was like "Uh, YEAH."

So long-ish story short, results inconclusive but leaning toward PINK. Baby was moving SO much we could barely get a good look between the legs, but what we did see looked more like girl parts at this point than boy parts. She literally chased baby around with the wand for 10 minutes; it was pretty funny!

We have our big u/s in two weeks on May 7th (at 8 am, PST) so you know I'll be sharing later that day, but I had to put it out there now. I'm not gonna go start buying girl clothes (yet) but I feel a little less silly scoping them out online now. LOL

I know I already told you this, but it is super exciting that your BP and weight and all of that is where you want it to be! Yay for the news you wanted to hear, and I hope the ultrasound tech on the 7th confirms the news! Now you will have 1 of each! Time will fly and the 7th will be here before you know it! Time flies when you are chasing a 1 year old!

Congrats on a great appt! Hopefully you'll be able to confirm the sex at the next appt, but very exciting to have a guess!
