I had an appt today with the maternal-fetal medicine specialist (I'm seeing her because of the HG) just to check in and gauge how I'm doing. I wasn't expecting an u/s, but I got one and my mom got to be there to see it! Baby looks great and is measuring right on schedule. The tech asked if I knew what I was having and I laughed and asked if he wanted to have a guess. He said "I never guess, but I can tell you." He spent forever looking and then said we are having a BOY!!! When my dr came in she took another look and said she definitely agreed.

Then I talked to the dr and she's super pleased with the fact that I'm down to one liter of IV fluids a day, and she is letting me have the IV protonics back! It majorly helps with the reflux and heartburn so I'm really glad I'm getting it. And I only threw up twice while I was out!

It was just such a good appointment and I really needed a good day. Getting to see that precious little life makes it so much easier to deal with how crummy I've been feeling. God is just so good!

Congratulations on finding out it's a boy! I'm glad you are starting to feel a bit better, but it sounds like you still feel awful . I hope it keeps getting better for you.

How many weeks are you again?
It's amazing how many techs and doctors are willing to tell the gender this early.
Congrats on your little man and a great appointment.

I'm 13 wks 1 day. I was totally blown away that he could tell me with such certainty this early, and honestly I believe him, but I won't have the whole nursery decorated until we see the baby again in a couple of weeks.

I should have known that we have the same due date. I just asked because we looked at work again yesterday so the tech could be certain. But he was not allowing it. The cord was tucked between the legs and feet crossed. He was super hyper so she waited to see if the cord came out but he kept it there lol. We were busy today so maybe tomorrow we will have a clear shot.
You being 13 weeks makes me feel more confident that if it still looks like a boy that we can assume it's accurate.

That's exactly how it was for me.....my doc was SO confident that I DID believe her....but, as you said....I won't go crazy until the gender scan (I'm trying to stay strong )

Yes, they do.....but it depends on the angle of the dangle .....a girls nub is more in line with the spine, a boys goes up more in a certain angle (can't remember right this second)....
