Visit to Perinatologist

During my last OB visit my doctor referred me to a local perinatologist. I have several ‘factors’ that put me in the high-risk-pregnancy category and she just wanted me to have a consultation with him. We discussed my age (not a big deal), whether I wanted to do any tests for birth defects (no), the fact that I would have an ultrasound, the details from my other pregnancies, and family health history. He recommended that I go ahead and follow the diabetic diet from my last pregnancy (I already am), then we went ahead to the ultrasound room. The tech spent quite some time taking pictures and measuring various body parts of the baby. I was able to watch it all on the ‘big screen’ they had on the wall, so that was nice. She asked me if I wanted to know “what it is” and of course I said yes….we always find out. Her answer?

“It looks like a girl.”

So Hailey is thrilled, and though Karl and I would have been perfectly happy if it were a boy, this will make it easier as far as clothing goes since we have so many of Emma’s things stored away. Plus, won’t it be great fun to see two little girls so close in age running around together?! I’m very excited! 😉
