Great News 18 week ultrasound
On the down side - after 4 days of feeling much better - I just threw up the meal I ate - and am off to bed to try and allay the migraine which seems to be rearing its head again. The good news is that the doc said I can take one baby aspirin a day if that will help the headaches. Oh and I may feel like crap - but I am So Happy to know I avoided the amnio and that Baby looks just fine. She is definitely my daughter too - the tech said - "oh what long legs she has" - between hip and knee - just like me!
My mother is delighted it's a girl too. Though she is SO sexist, she even said "oh it will be So much easier to look after a girl - after all, with a girl there are many fewer things to go wrong"!!!! In a way, although I am really excited - it would have been nice to have a boy - I often wondered, if people would not have taken me more seriously - when i was a child - if I had been a boy (being born illegitimate to a single mother.) I had the feeling that when my mother gave birth to me - people said "she had the baby - it's just a little girl" - It's probably all in my head. At least if I do decide to go for number two - I won't feel compelled to have them spin the sperm to select for a girl - which I knew I always wanted!
