I am excited to say...IT'S ONLY ONE! Boy was I relieved. The Tech didn't make me suffer either, because I was so nervous, so she told me right away. She also said the measurements put me at 15 weeks, I'm at 14 now, so that's only a week difference. Since my babies have always measured a bit big I'm positive I am only 14 weeks, and that I was correct about when I conceived. I am not sure why I measured at 17 weeks at my last midwife appointment, we will just have to wait and see what I measure at next time.
Also I am pretty sure it's a GIRL! I can't be 100% because it is early to tell, but the Tech said it was her opinion that it was a girl, and it looked like one to me too. I'm super excited about that. The baby also kicked really hard during the appointment, so hard that it moved the outside of my belly were the ultrasound equipment was, and the Tech was really shocked, she said she has never seen anything like it, and that it was like a 28 week kick! The baby started going crazy, moving around and kicking like wild. I don't think it liked the test so much. I had been saying that I was feeling some movement, starting from around 12 weeks, but I never expected anything like that! The baby was also trying to make it hard for us to see whether it was a girl or a boy, it was closing it's legs and putting it's hands down there like it was trying to cover up, we all started laughing really hard. I really feel like the baby is a girl, but I don't know if I can start calling it a girl, since I don't know for sure.
Anyways it's nice to know there one big baby swimming around in this tummy of mine, and I can't help but be excited about the good possibility that it is a girl.
On the road again
