I am so relieved to report that my baby looks absolutely normal and healthy in the detailed ultrasound I had this morning! <big sigh of relief>
I am also in shock that they said it's a boy! My father has 13 female progeny and had 0 males until my sister gave birth to a boy last week. It just seemed normal to have a girl, plus the Ramzi's method seemed to point to the girl (left) side for implantation. Just goes to show!
I'm tickled pink and so glad I don't have to launch a grieving process. I can continue to bond with and love openly this baby growing in me <3
I have been so fortunate to have tons of prayers, good thoughts, moral support, a portal to ascendant masters at Mt. Shasta (?? thanks mom!), the solstice, and hugs to get me through this. Googling was a mixed blessing -- it fueled obsession and provided both comforting anecdotes and scary diagnoses.
The scariest thought was that I would never have my own baby. At least for today, I am reassured that I am having a healthy boy. What, a boy? No way!
