GIRL! I am still in complete shock about it. For some reason over the past several weeks I have been convinced that I was having a boy, but nope it is definitely a girl! Everything looked good at the ultrasound. The placenta is low, but it is not covering my cervix. They will keep a close eye on it and make sure it moves further up as everything grows and expands. If it begins to cover the cervix, then that's what they call placenta previa and it becomes quite scary. But the doctor didn't seem too concerned about it. He said in 95% of cases with low lying placentas, everything shifts up and turns out fine. So I won't start worrying until he does!
I also found out that i am RH- so I'll have to get the shot at my 28 week appointment. No big deal i guess..Speaking of shots, they gave me a flu shot while I was there and I have to say I was a really big baby about it! I thought that was kinda funny considering I have given myself a countless number of shots over the past few years! I guess I kinda freaked out because I wasn't in control of it. It obviously turned out to be simple and painless, but I definitely felt sorry for myself for getting a shot on my birthday (and as R put it, "it wasn't the good kind of shot that you normally get for a birthday!")
I am posting from my phone so I can't share the ultrasound pictures at the moment, but I promise to do so as soon as I get the chance. :)
I guess it's time to get shopping for dresses and bows! This is going to be interesting!
