Pink or blue. Today was the day we found out. I've been dying to have this ultrasound done. Not only so that I can start shopping for this little bean but also to make sure that everything inside is in good working order. I had a slight panic attack on the way to the office and Scott was meeting me there. So, I called up one of my besties and she talked me through my moment of irrational thinking. And assured me everything would be fine. And she made me laugh. I love her for that. Thanks Miranda! You see, that's the problem with being a pediatric nurse. We know too much. My list of things to watch for on the ultrasound was more than just girl parts or boy parts. It went something like this. I won't name them all or you'll start to think I'm neurotic.
1. 4 chambered heart. check.
2. Intact diaphragm. check.
3. Enclosed spinal column. check.
4. Intestines inside belly. check.
5. Appropriate sized limbs. check.
Phew! We made it through unscathed. A healthy, growing baby. I feel blessed. We feel blessed. Life is good.
Oh-- and about those boy or girl parts. May I introduce you to our little man...
