She’s a Girl He’s a Boy!

Today’s ultrasound revealed, plain as day, that my little “girl” has a wee wee. Looks like Rosaura is a Robert after all. I got a whole strip of totally awesome 3D pictures from the ultrasound (you could see his little nose!), but they blew out of my grocery bag on the way home. I’m really really bummed about that, probably way more bummed than such a minor tragedy deserves.

The cyst hasn’t shrunk but it hasn’t gotten any bigger, either. On the other hand the ultrasound tech, looking at my placenta, said doubtfully “They told you it was low lying? This is a partial previa.” That is actually worse, meaning the placenta is about half covering the cervix. I’m going to have to wait until I talk to my doctor to get the full details, but from what I understand the most likely course of action will still be a “wait and see” approach. The ultrasound tech (who was extremely nice) told me that the doctor would almost certainly have me schedule yet another follow up ultrasound to check on the placenta position at 32 weeks.

In the meantime, you will have to take my word for it that the baby is looking extremely cute, even though I am a little disappointed that I won’t be buying all those lacy pink rosette-covered baby things after all.

    well, a paradigm shift is needed. Suggested new themes for baby-dressing fantasies include:

    – wee Aragorn outfit
    – wee Robin Hood outfit with wee feather in wee cap and wee bow and arrow (naturally)
    – wee Jedi robes
    – baker boy costume, coz what’s Sam’s gonna complain about now?
    – wee ninja outfit. what?
    – fairy-tale prince outfits
    – eton collars
    – teeny little sailor suits.

    Sorry, it’s going to take me a little bit just to get past that first entry!

    Yowza! That’s a paradigm shift. Better to find out now than after the lacy stuff was all purchased though.

  • Wendy Says:

    Oh, also — congratulations! Yay! It’s a boy!

    hahah — Bizzy will be well pleased, since that was HER addition to the list.
