Just To Make Sure...What Else Can This Ultrasound Machine See?

Original Posting at NewlyParents.com here

Belly of a pregnant womanAs we eagerly anticipate the arrival of our baby boy in 4 weeks, today at work there was an interesting surprise. One of the people in the building had been planning on having a baby girl and today when the baby was delivered they heard the words that I'm not exactly sure how I would react to, "It's a boy! SURPRISE!" All these months of planning and preparing for a baby girl and it turns out it was a boy. The family spent the day scrambling around town exchanging all the girl clothes for boy clothes.

So this got me thinking about our baby. I quickly turned to Facebook to compare our 20 week ultrasound picture to our friends (who just had a boy a couple months ago) 20 week ultrasound pictures. After flipping back and forth between pictures for about 10 minutes I had satisfied myself that the "pee pee" we saw in our ultrasound picture looks just like the one in our friends ultrasound picture. Which means it looks kind of like a turtle.

Later on in the day we our our baby doctor appointment and we were going to get a sneak peek ultrasound so the doctor could see which position the baby's head was in. It was at this time that I casually mentioned to the doctor, "What else can this machine sneak a peek of? The reason I'm asking is because a person at work was told they were having a girl and come to find out when they delivered the baby today, it was a boy."

The doctor laughed with me(or possibly at me) at my paranoia and she said, "We'll see if we can take a look at that too."

While it's comforting to know that the babies head is in the perfect position (which was the whole point of the sneak peek ultrasound) I still needed confirmation that our boy was indeed a boy. She wiggled the probe all over and around my wife's belly (which looked incredibly uncomfortable) and eventually found both legs. From here we just needed to find what was in between. End result: Boy parts! The 20 week ultrasound showed us the twig, todays ultrasound confirmed the berries.

Twig and Berries. That's my boy.

I also googled ultra sound pictures when I got home from the doctor just to compare even more. I apparently enjoy stressing myself out over the things I have absolutely no control over. That and I wanted to make sure I didn't have to paint the room again. That would have sucked.
