We went for my regular ultrasound Wednesday. I make 20 weeks tomorrow. Baby was being a bit uncooperative while the doctor was trying to get measurements and all that.
I didn't get to see any of it. My doctor had the monitor turned towards her and I was lying off to the side with my feet closest to the monitor. She would have had to turn the monitor for me to see. Mom, Dad, youngest brother, hubby, cousin and her gf got to see everything! The awe and delight on their faces was awesome but I didn't get to see any of the scenes they were seeing because they were standing behind the doctor and I was off to the side and couldn't see the monitor unless it was turned to me.
They could see her covering her face and making a fist and getting agitated when the doctor tried to make her move. I got to see a shot of her when the doctor sent my family out and had me undress for a vaginal ultrasound to check her gender because she just wasn't cooperating with the over the belly one.
She showed me how to tell she is a girl and I got to see her behind dancing around when she started moving again, but I'll be honest, I'm a bit jealous of my family for getting to see all the rest.
I don't know why I didn't ask to see more. I am usually pretty vocal about things but for some reason, I didn't say anything. Maybe it was because I knew she'd already been doing the ultrasound for a while and there were other patients waiting, but I am kicking myself in the butt for not speaking up.
So now I'm waiting for the 3/4D ultrasound we have scheduled. If I can't see more there, I'll definitely be speaking up.
