Fall, 2013
Several months ago I had a young man approximately in his mid twenties for a testicular ultrasound. During the course of the time that I was explaining to him the procedure and how to prepare for it, I could sense this exam was causing him a great deal of stress.  I tried to get his history and talk a little with him to ease the stress during the exam but then there was that awkward moment of silence. He then, nervously, asked the most famous question a sonographer hears..."Is it a boy or a girl?"  I thought for a second and said "Congratulations!  It's twins!" He burst into laughter and seemed much more relaxed during the remainder of the exam.
