I will be done my 22nd week tomorrow and am finally going in for my first ultrasound! DH and I will both be going in around 11am for the ultrasound, then I have my check up with the OB in the afternoon. It's going to be a full day all about baby! DH and I said it would be fun to go out for dinner afterwards and celebrate if all goes well and the baby is doing as well as we hope. Should be a fun day and I just can't wait! Everyone (or so it seems) has already seen their little ones at least once, some a few times, and we are just so happy to finally be seeing him or her for the first time! We still want to keep the gender a surprise, but that will be difficult having the baby on the screen and not knowing...but we are going to try to stick with the plan and not find out the sexe. I'll let you all know how it went afterwards! Only about 25 hours to go....hehehehe!
Thanks everyone! I think tissues are a great idea! And we might even bring the video camera in to catch some of it that way we will be able to replay it over and over at home! We recorded the sound of the heartbeat the first time we heard it and I still love to listen to it every once in a while and am so happy we thought of recording it. It would be awesome to have the ultrasound on tape too! We'll see if DH feels like taping and if the tech lets us...fingers crossed!
A side note...I think a late ultrasound is normal for where we live (NB Canada). They usually set the first one up for between 18 and 22 weeks (mine just happens to be later in that time frame, but the doc said the good news is we will be able to see better) and another around 34 or so and that's it, unless you have complications, twins or any other issue that may need more monitoring.
