Ok SERIOUSLY?!

SO as I've reminded you over and over this week.. we were supposed to find out the baby gender this coming Tuesday. Well, I made a last minute doctor's appt this morning to go in this afternoon and have a little problem I've been having checked on. Derek actually got off work at lunch time today so he came with me to the hospital but decided to just wait for me in the waiting room while I talked to the doc. This is how it went:

Doctor: Ok everything looks ok but I'll write you a prescription and you can pick it up today. You're 18 weeks this weekend so why don't you go ahead and lay back and we'll get an ultrasound going right now.

Me(ABRUPTLY SITTING UP AND YELLING AND STARTLING THE DOCTOR): OH MY GOD!! Are we about to find out the baby gender right now??!?! (heart racing with excitement) Can you go get my husband??!? He's in the waiting room! His name is Derek!

Now at this point it feels that the stars have aligned and the universe made this other thing happen to me so that I would make the appt today.. the day that D just happens to get off of work early enough to come with me... 

Doctor: (snickers) well yes maybe.

Me(still talking louder and faster than I should): Because we actually have an appt with you this Tuesday and we've been so anxious and excited and I just didn't expect you to do an ultrasound today and and and and and..

Derek comes in to the room half worried that something serious was wrong with me and half wondering if the situation was what in fact it was.
The doc squeezes the cold goo on my belly and starts the most exciting event of my life to date. We're looking... looking... there's the head... there are the arms... what the heck is that?.. ummmm.... I'm lost... silence in the room..
I finally burst out "so what is it??" 
Doctor: Well everything looks right on schedule size wise and the baby looks great but unfortunately is breech so I can't tell what the gender is today.

Me: NO NO NO I WANT TO KNOW NOW YOU CAN'T GO GETTING MY HOPES UP LIKE THAT I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU DID THIS TO US YOU BASTARD MY HEART IS RACING A MILLION MILES A MINUTE AND NOW I GET NOTHING!!!!

Ok that last part was all in my head. What I actually said out loud was : What if I try pushing on my stomach a little bit to move baby around? 

Doctor: Noooo I don't think we're gonna find what we're looking for today.

Me: Well we actually have that appt with you on Tuesday so do you think we'll find out then?

Doctor: Actually lets go ahead and cancel that appt and have you back here in a month. Everything should be good to go then. 

Me: Silent and pissed.

We walked out of that appt feeling totally defeated so I did what I've been wanting to do all week. I called First Look Sonogram Hawaii(3D and 4D ultrasounds) and made an appt for Sunday night.. the earliest appt they had. Hey, it's two days earlier than Tuesday would've been! This baby is gonna turn by then. I just know it. Baby has to. Right?

Ugh.

  1. is your doctor stupid? all babies are breech at that time. i'm glad you're going to a 4d place. that's what i did. it's SOOOOO worth it. you'll have a much better experience. just act like the first appointment never happened.
