That's the Best Ball Shot I've Ever Seen!

I just had my 36 week appointment. I had a blood draw, my GBS test, and the midwife did an in office sono to check his position.

He was head down (yay) and I asked her if while we were at it could we maybe try to get a penis shot. Because yes, I'm 4 weeks from my due date and have yet to see a penis. I won't lie that there has been this teeny tiny part of me that's holding out that this baby could still be a girl. Hi, my name is Faith and I need to see it to believe it. My parents named me after their favorite soap opera character if at helps to explain anything.

I explained to my midwife that John wasn't at our anatomy scan so we didn't get the visual. She laughed and searched around for a penis. Suddenly she exclaimed, "that is the BEST ball shot I've ever seen!" Sure enough there on the screen was a perfect profile of baby boy's balls. Unfortunately it's not the type of machine that prints out pictures so I can't share a picture of my child's balls with you all. I'm sure he'll thank me later.

After the appointment I called John to tell him that I finally had visual confirmation that our not so little Frijole was indeed a boy. He asked if I finally accept it now to which I replied, "Yes. Unless our baby girl has got some balls." This child is part me after all. :)


  1. haha I'm glad you got visual confirmation. Hope your little dude stays in position for you!

  2. Such a funny post!! Congratulations! Boys are lots of fun!

  3. Hilarious story! Glad you finally got visual confirmation. At my 20 wk u/s, the tech said she saw it but I couldn't quite make anything out - so I suppose for the first time in four pregnancies, I have a smidge of doubt that there's actually a boy in here. When my second son (Joel) was on that u/s screen, the tech typed in "DEFINITELY A BOY" right over his, um, penicular area. No such definitive proof this time, thus far!

  4. This is hilarious. The ball shot missed around the world. He will thank you for sure!! Boys are so much fun too! Congrats again!
