Ok so I go in for my u/s right to make sure the baby is doing ok and to find out what it is right.. My appointment time was 10am.. At 11 am Im pissed off because Ive been sitting there for a hour with a full bladder.. so FINALLY they call me back there after I went up there and complained.. I sit there and my baby is apparently having dance parties in my uterus because it took her an hour to get the measurements.. So that makes 2 hours with a full bladder.. At this point Im getting ready to explode.. I was about ready to cry because it hurt so bad... I ask her if the baby is ok size wise and if its a boy or a girl.. she says.. you have to wait for the radiologist because I cant give you that info.. SO she leaves and Im sitting there for almost another half an hour before he comes in.. so now Im up to 2 1/2 hours no pee'n.. He is pushin down just like the other lady.. Im dying.. ABout ready to pee.. Then he says it.. "Well Im pretty sure its a girl but, I wouldnt go decorating the room because I honestly cant get a clear shot to say either" Ok so WTH did you say its probably a girl then.. SO BASICALLY.. I went almost 3 hours no bathroom breaks full bladder to the max... TO FIND OUT I dont know WTH Im having.. But on a happy note.. The babys size is fine.. he/she weighs around 13 oz's and they have adjusted my due date a little.. instead of 1/12/06 its now 1/17/06.. SO just a few days.. SO IM guessing Im stuck on team yellow until I have the baby or unless they happen to do another u/s.. I cant say Im not disappointed that I dont know but, atleast its healthy with nothing wrong at all.. Guess I can stop worrying about my non weight gain now since the baby is right about where it should be huh

My OB didn't even ask for me to have a full bladder when I had my ultrasound and they were still able to tell the gender. It's better for him to tell you he isn't sure though than to tell you wrong! It's a lot easier for them to get it wrong and tell you it's a girl when it's actually a boy than the other way around. Either they see a penis or they don't. Usually if they see a penis or testicles, they can be pretty sure it's a boy. But a slow developing boy can easily look like a girl that early in pregnancy. If you have the 3D ultrasound available in your area, it's worth having that done. It's much more clear and they can get good pictures for you to keep.

So sorry to hear about the long wait. Ain't it just a like a hospital??
Glad to hear the baby is fine. That is awesome news.
I believe--That you should always leave loved ones with loving words.
It may be the last time you see them.

I just had my 20 week u/s last week and I was miserable leading up to it! Drank the water before we left the house, and halfway there I had to make DH stop somwhere for me to use the restroom, I thought I was going to pop! Got to the dr's office and drank more water, sat in the waiting room sweating because it hurt so bad, and finally got called in 20 mins after my appt was supposed to start. She started the exam, about 10 seconds in told me to go ahead and empty my bladder! All of that for nothing

But she was still able to tell the gender and see everything.
