It's just great when you walk into a doctor's office with absolutely no clue why you're there, isn't it?
Earlier this week, I was referred to a high risk OB, and today was my first appointment. I wasn't at all aware of the referral until I got the call to schedule the appointment, and even then, I was told "it's just a consultation." Well, I guess "consultation" means NT scan. So, between the tech, the med student, and the doctor, I got to watch our little one on screen for a good hour, and at the end of the appointment, the doctor let me know gender with a 95% certainty (that was a surprise). He said he'll be able to tell me with 98% certainty when he sees me again in 4 weeks (this jumping back & forth between 2 doctors might kill me), and then it should be confirmed at my 20 week anatomy scan (assuming we don't have more invasive testing in between). But for now, we have a healthy ______ in there with no signs of any abnormalities.
