I have an appointment set-up with a new OB January 7th, 2013!
He comes recommended through my Bosses wife’s colleague. They are nurses at the hospital I plan to deliver.
I'm really hoping this will be it! His staff, so far have been so nice with me and they answer their phones right away. A great change from a horrible staff at my previous practice that will leave you on hold for 30-45 minutes! I hope if the receptionist are good, then hopefully the rest of the staff will be too.
I'm currently 16.1 weeks. I'll be exactly 20 weeks for my appointment which means they will more than likely schedule me for an anatomy scan pretty quickly afterwards.
The good news is that my DH and I have decided to do an elective ultrasound this Friday. I don't care about the sex, I wanted to go Team Green to begin with but I caved because hubby really wants to know and since I’ve known him he rarely asks for anything. I'll just be happy to see my little Ducky again!
We did compromise a little on this ultrasound. Our technician will be writing the sex down on paper and placing it in an envelope. DH can read what the sex is when I'm not around him and will get to know what the baby is for a few days only because he has some shopping to do!
Come Christmas morning he has been instructed to leave a present for me under the tree from Santa that will hold a present inside that will clearly indicate if we are having a boy or girl. This way he gets what he wants and I still get a surprise, so to speak :)
I have also THREATEN him that no matter what anyone does to him, no one gets to know the sex of the baby before I do.
It's a good thing he only has to keep the secret for 3 days, lol
Can't wait! <3
