One week ago, I had an appointment at my OBGYN for a typical pregnancy checkup. If the ultrasound technician was available, they would also check for the baby’s gender since Baby Deuce’s legs were crossed during the 20-week ultrasound. Going into the appointment, I didn’t know if the technician would be available and, even if she was, if Baby Deuce would cooperate.
