No Such Luck!

Well, Me and baby #2 are not exactly on speaking terms tonight. Seth and I went in for our appointment...both of us nervous and anxious! We get in there and check everything out...heart, brain, umbilical cord, spine...etc., etc....and all is fine...such good news since I had been a little nervous to hear that all day! A healthy baby is the most important information to receive, so believe me that I was thankful to find everything in place and working appropriately.
Then...we look for the good stuff...and baby #2 will not cooperate! First of all the baby is in a breach position. Secondly, the baby is sunny side up (even though my doctor says no one calls it this anymore)...And finally, the baby is sitting Indian style (pardon my lack of political correctness on this term...I don't know what the kids are calling it these days)!
So, WE.SAW.NOTHING. I told Dr. Maxey that I was not leaving until he told me some news...but there was simply nothing to report. We looked for a good 30 minutes and only saw this little foot covering the exact spot that we needed to see! Me, Seth, and the good doctor were all pushing on my stomach trying to get a good shot, but nothing ever happened! I was really sad at this point...I was preparing to walk out the door and go buy the stocking stuffers at Heavensent that I have already picked out for either gender!
In order to get me out of his office in a timely fashion, Dr. Maxey promised to squeeze me in on Monday morning for a quick sex check. So, it isn't all bad...I only have to wait 5 more days...but still! I did have to walk out of there and call everyone to tell them NOTHING! I just hope I have better luck Monday or my doctor will be seeing a lot of me in the next couple weeks!
Here is the first really good picture of the stubborn baby for everyone to see! I realize it looks just like everyone's ultrasound picture...but it is still very special to me!

and so it should be! Looks beautiful if you ask me, and I guess it just gives you time to be happy for all the healthy parts that you DID get to see! But dang...he/she MUST have known you were lookin! Cant wait to find out, I am keepin my fingers crossed for you.

I'm telling ya-second babies have more attitude and spunk from the get go. It's how they make sure they command enough attention! And they say 'criss cross applesauce' at Will's preschool if you want to be PC. Glad everything went well with the health side of things!

So sad! The same thing happened to us, but at the very end she cooperated. At least you don't have to wait until next month. Post when you can on Monday!

That baby picture is so sweet. I am more than happy to know that everything looked okay. But, we might have to start spanking that baby if HE doesn't cooperate!!!

I'm just happy that we have another healthy baby on our hands...but seriously, can you drink some caffeine or do yoga before you go on Monday?! I really gotta see the goods!!

That ultrasound picture really does show at least one thing that we all know is for certain- that baby is BEAUTIFUL!
I'm anxious to hear and hope you'll post tomorrow once you hear! I remember I drank a lot of sweet tea before my ultrasound because I had heard that giving them sugar & Caffiene would make them dance more and more opportunity to see the goods in case they do a kick? Not sure if that has any truth but I sure was giddy after not having much of it during pregnancy but I guess it worked. GOod luck!!
