I had my 12 week appt yesterday, at nearly 14 weeks (I'll be 14 tomorrow!) and my little bean decided to be difficult. We spent 5 minutes trying to find the hb with the doppler. We finally found it, so that was good. And I got an u/s to check my cervical length, which is still normal, so that's VERY good.<br><br>
Then, the u/s tech (who I'm now on a first name basis with <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">) asked me if I wanted to peek at the baby, so we did. And we might even know what the gender of this little one is (!!). I'm not going to announce anything yet, since we could be wrong - it is a little early still, but my OB and the u/s tech agreed about what they thought. I'm so excited!

Oh my goodness! Honey that is wonderful!!! Yeah! Did you have a secret preference on gender?

Aww, thanks Sarah!<br><br>
I didn't have any preference, but I've been thinking that it's a girl since the beginning. I refer to the baby as "she" in most conversations and people always ask "Is it a girl?" and I shrug, cause I don't really know. But the u/s was surprising.. it really showed three distinct lines.<br><br>
This also fits with what I was hoping. This would make my new pregnancy as different as possible from the last (which makes me less nervous, even thought there's no real reason for that!).

I'm being nosy .... have you had a LEEP before?? I have to get cervical lengths checked, too, since I've had 2 LEEPs in the past.<br>
My cervical check U/S is next week.

LOL!!! What the heck!? Dianna, I'm already confused. Don't make it worse... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Do three lines mean "vulva", or what???

Trail, yeah 3 lines is seeing the vulva when you're looking for a babies gender. Boy's obviously don't have that.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
Dianna, no I've never had a LEEP. This is all a precaution because nobody knows what happened last time.
