Yesterday I finally had my level 2 ultrasound appointment. A few weeks ago I found out that some results from my first ultrasound raised some red flags so my midwife wanted a more in depth ultrasound done to find out if there was anything going on that we needed to know about.
And of course, the kids (ok ok…myself as well) wanted to find out the gender.
I arrived early but surprisingly didn’t have to wait long to get in. The ultrasound took a while because baby wasn’t cooperating to give the tech all of the pictures she needed for a good while. This makes 5/6 pregnancies in which the ultrasound tech asked me to go pee in order to get better photos. Which is why I don’t go out of my way to have an uncomfortable full bladder any more.
After the ultrasound was done I had to do some more waiting while the Dr. reviewed the images. This time there was a fair bit of waiting involved; long enough to get a few rows done on the hat I’m knitting for my daughter (the pattern is called Quick Ombre Hat, available for free on Ravelry.)
The baby is looking perfectly healthy; the Dr. had no concerns at all. So after a few more errands, I headed home with gender reveal plans for the kids. You can see the results below.
As you can see, team blue is gaining another member! A couple of the kids were initially disappointed as they were all hoping and praying for a girl but that’s already fading and they had a blast finding out.
Thank you for all the prayers!
