This is NOT A JOKE!

Okay people. You can't make this stuff up. Husband and wife have first child.. without finding out the sex of the baby. Same husband and wife have second child.. without finding out the sex of the baby. Same husband and wife get pregnant with third child... decide to find out the sex of the child. For five minutes the ultrasound tech waits.. and waits. On what, you ask? For the stubborn baby to open its legs!

No such luck. Wife asks if she can get up and go to the bathroom, pee and then come back to try again. While in the bathroom the baby gets the shaking of a lifetime and is tossed about as wife/mom jumps up and down and all but stands on her head to get stubborn baby to cooperate.

Wife/mom gets back on the table. Ultrasound tech looks again. Her exact words, "Those legs are still together and there is too much cord in the way for me to make a confident call on this one. I will say that I am 51% sure that its a girl. I know that's not much help."

Husband and wife leave office. Very bummed.

For those of you who didn't know, this was with Sav-a-life. We have our scheduled ultrasound with the Doctor's office on the 15th. Maybe by then the baby will decide to cooperate.

Wife/mom is remembering the bliss of when she didn't find out with her other two!

Oh my! I am so bummed too, I can't imagine how you feel. I am so sorry. At least April 15th will be a fun day for you when the rest of the country is trying to file their taxes on time. I love you!

Oh my word! That is hilarious! I remember you once saying, "if it can happen in pregnancy, it will probably happen to me..I seem to defy the odds". OK so not an exact quote but pretty close! :)

Stinkin babies! ;)
Hope he/she is more coorpative tomorrow for ya!

I was thinking that would probably happen! It's the cynic in me, I guess! Maybe you'll find something out next week...

I like "51%" sure. Oh yeah, that helps.

Sheesh...is this a sign of future stubborness?!!

I just can't believe that. At least he/she is modest!! I'm so sorry. The next 8 days are going to just crawl by!! :(

Definitely a girl! ONLY a girl could be this stubborn.

DOH! (In my best Homer Simpson voice) It's such a sad shame you can't load up on caffeine to get that baby moving before an ultrasound! Perhaps the one on the 15th will be during an "awake" time for the baby. If not, then you'll be surprised again this go round! Either way, CONGRATS! IT'S A BABY! LOL!

Hopefully it is a girl and she is in training for later in life. Keep those legs together!
