I had my u/s yesterday and things are looking good so far. Will go back on the 15th to hopefully see a HB!!! It was so weird because there were so many oddly serendipidous things last evening at my appt! First of all, I get there and start reading one of their publications (it's a fertility clinic) and read about one of the secretaries(random). Then, I go see the MD, have my U/S, come back out and start talking to exactly the secretary who I read about. I had read that she was an Au Pair in the U.S. for a year, and since I am from the U.S. I asked here where she was, etc. It turns out she was in the neighborhood that my best friend in the world is from outside of Chicago (I'm from Washington State)!!! Then, she tells me we can't book my f/u appointment for next week because the Dr. is going on vacation to Barcelona, which is where my hubby and I met!! Then we start talking about her kids and she tells me she has boy, boy, girl! I can't help but hope sooooo badly that this is meant for us as well!!! I soooo hope that these were "signs" and that we really will get our princess!!!!
Kateyk: I won't be doing anything invasive to find out, but many people get pretty good ideas with a 12+ week nub shot (u/s) so I am hopeful for some clues early on. I will be going to an OB who specializes in prenantal diagnostics here in Austria and she is supposedly really good at "guessing" early on. So, I am of course hopeful that we will find out sooner rather than later.
A couple of my close friends already know that I am preggers, as I needed them to watch my kids when I go to the Dr., etc, but otherwise we've decided that we won't tell anyone until we (hopefully) have an idea what we are having. I just can't deal with all of the extra pressure from everyone else, kwim?
Hope everyone is doing well and not too sick!!
