Three more weeks!

Only three more weeks until I find out what kind of baby is inside me. (the boy kind or the girl kind) For those of you who are keeping track, you might be thinking "huh, I thought it was four more weeks". Well, you would be right. It was supposed to be four weeks, but today I called and changed my appointment to 19 weeks instead of 20 weeks. I have a legit reason for moving my appointment up one week, and it's not just because I'm going crazy not knowing. (I might be going a little bit crazy....) The real reason for moving it up is just as fickle though. The day that I was planning on having my reveal party was on Saturday the 26th. I looked at my calendar and also noticed that there is a craft show where I'm planning on having a booth. (I hand make things for mommies and babies, in case you didn't know) Based on the energy and effort I put into my last craft show, there is no way I could have a party on the same day, or same weekend. I was up late every night preparing for it, and was exhausted by the end of the show. And I wasn't pregnant last time! I could just not have the party, but that's no fun. If I can do both, I'd like to. So, I thought I'd just call and see if I could move my appointment up one week, then I could have the party the week before. I was really hesitant to do this, because I'm such a rule follower. I was told by this OBGYN that my appointment had to be at 20 weeks (even though I know darn well that the anatomy scan can be done anywhere from 18-20 weeks) and who am I to question a doctor? I also figured that their office gets all kinds of crazy pregnant ladies calling in and begging for gender ultrasounds or whatever. I didn't want to be put into the category of "crazy pregnant lady". But then the more I thought about it, I thought "who cares?". This isn't my regular OB, (My regular OB sends me to a specialist for these scans) and I'll probably never see these people again. Who cares if they think I'm crazy? So I called. And they changed the appointment, no problem. No questions asked. And I'm pretty sure they don't think I'm crazy. That was easy.


  1. How exciting! I called a few weeks ago to set my scan up (knowing that they are sticklers for 20 weeks) but the scheduler said how about March 3rd? I said SURE and never questioned since I also know 18-20 weeks is okay. Well, I will be 18 weeks and 4 days...so excited! And the plus is if they can't see everything they need to...well, I just come back again:-) I can't wait to find out if we are having a boy or girl!

  2. That's great!
