Hm. I went for my 1st ultrasound yesterday. Based on all the facts, I SHOULD be almost 12 weeks along now. I have felt that this is the right number of weeks, and my body sure has felt and acted its part. But what do I know, right?? According to my ultrasound, the nice technician informed me that "Hmmm, this baby is only measuring 9 weeks 5 days", so 2 weeks less than I had figured.
What??? I don't get it. It does not make sense. I'm not going to share any details, but the whole thing is rather strange and confusing. I have had 7 kids, and many ultrasounds, and they have all been within 5 days of my estimated date... Now this.
You might think, "Who cares? a few weeks more or less?" Well, I DO care. Now we are having an April baby instead of a March baby. It makes it sound like a whole month later!! (even if the date "just" moved from March 20th to April 4th.) Now I have to do week 10 to 12 all over again!!
My oldest daughter is not impressed either. She has been over the moon about the fact that I'm expecting a baby within 2 days of her birthday, and now that will most likely not happen... My dear hubby does turn the big 4-0 in April thou, so Happy B-Day Big Guy! This one is for you :)
Well. There. Now I got to gripe abou that a bit. Now I'm hoping that the baby will surprise me and come "early", actually meaning, that my own duedate was the right one all along...
