My happy day

Well, in true "me" fashion, this day was not without chaos, bumps and bruises. But I won't make you wait...it did end with a happy ending.

K's appointment for her ultrasound was at 9:30 this morning. To say that the two of us were anxious, nervous and excited is a bit of a giant understatement. Either I was having sympathy morning sickness, or a panic attack. Not sure. Maybe both.

So we waited.

By 10:30, she went to the front desk to ask about her appointment. They said, that she was next.

So...we waited.

Around 11 am, her and I both went from anxious...to extremely annoyed.

By 11:30, they told her that the ultrasound machine was broken and they would have to reschedule.

Que the panic and a lot of "WTF's!?!?!".

Seriously. We've had so many problems with this OBGYN office. So yes, we're going to find her somewhere else for her prenatal care. She called around and I called around to find another office to do an ultrasound today. Luckily an OBGYN office I spoke with said they couldn't do it, but gave me phone numbers for radiology clinics. She called and was able to get a 4pm appointment.

Mind you, K drives 45 minutes each way to her appointments. Not to mention arranging for child care, etc. She's seriously my hero for all she does for us and for this pregnancy.

We had to wait out the entire day after being completely frazzled this morning, but it was absolutely worth the weight.

Heartbeat was in the 120's and measuring right on track!!

We're seriously over the moon and so happy!!

Next ultrasound in 2 weeks!!

  2. Ughhh, waiting was every nasty four letter word imaginable, but HALLELUJAH for the news at the end. Certainly worth waiting for!

    If there was only one pregnancy left in all the world, I would want it to be this one. You and T deserve this and every other good thing coming your way! Congratulations, sweet friend! Now crack open a bottle of wine and go celebrate! You deserve it after this day!

  7. This must have been torturous! I saw on the u/s photo that it had been at 4, and that seemed like a really late appointment for such a big event. But you made it! And you saw a heartbeat! Your arms will be full by the end of 2015, that I feel sure of. Praise the Lord for K's magic uterus 😊😊
