We had another ultrasound today at the NEW high risk OB office, my appointment lasted from 8:30am til 2:00.... it was very long..I came home and took a 3 hour nap with my son, however I am now on insulin for my diabetes...even though I was super duper well behaved..I can't fight this with diet and exercise alone.. they taught me how to give myself injections..which has been my biggest fear since forever... but on another note.. they did another U/S and my DH asked the Tech what she thought the baby was (sex wise) and she said her educated guess as 14 weeks was that it looked like we are having another BOY!!!! my husband kept asking me if I am dissappointed (we agreed on 2 children only) and I said..how could I be dissappointed..I am lucky enough to be carrying a healthy child...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:<br>
So how accurate does everybody think the guesstimation of an experiences U/S tech is 14 weeks. like DH and I agreed we are happy regardless.. healthy is our main goal.. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I'm glad the baby is well! And the shot, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"> You are stronger than me... about the sex, I'm not sure how accurate at 14 weeks. I have read that the sex organs are there already, but hard to distinguish and I have also read that the way they tell so early is whether there are three lines for the girl or no three lines for the boy because the scrotum descends later in pregnancy. So if that's correct then there is always the possiblitly of the three lines developing still. I dunno, I guess I wouldn't go out and buy a bunch of blue stuff yet...

Despite my efforts, I couldn't control my gestational diabetes without insulin either (well, actually, I couldn't control it with insulin either, but that's another story! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">)<br><br>
I was certain there was no way i could give myself injections...no way! It's amazing how easy it became.<br><br>
Congratulations on another healthy baby boy! I too am carrying baby boy #2, and this is likely our last (we have a total of FOUR BOYS with my two stepsons!!) Would I have loved a girl? Sure. But with a scare about Downs, knowing that he's gestating happily and healthily in there is all I need! I am amazed, however, the reactions I get, particularly from my family, faces of disappointment. WTF? Have your own dang baby if you want a girl so bad - I will take my healthy baby boy, thank you very much!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Congratulations! The sonographers at a high risk office are pretty darn experienced at looking at babies with ultrasound, doing it all day, everyday. But if she says it's a guess, I'd think it was most probable, but I wouldn't entirely rule of the possibility of a girl yet either. She's probably experienced enough that if she can clearly see a gender, she wouldn't call it a guess, lol.

Zaxmama,<br><br>
What an appointment...so long! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I just wanted to say good luck on your journey with insulin. What I know is that if you are well controlled with insulin your chances of a healthy baby are very good! I just wanted to be encouraging because I know the needle sticks are a whole new realm. I have had to give myself im injections twice in my life and it did take some nerve, and a lot of hovering before the jab…but I found it to be not so bad after all. Best of luck, Paige

Thanks Mamas for all the words of encouragement..<br><br>
Paige, thank you also ..I was a nervous wreck but as soon as I did it I thought.wow that wasn't so bad.. it will just take some time and getting used toand preparation and planning on my part but we will be fine... I am pretty sure my DH will be going on insulin at some point in the near future so this is good practice...but I really appreciate the understanding and compassion..<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
