I was calmer than I thought I would be on Friday (I still get a little nervous for ultrasounds for some reason!) I was waiting on Blake to come meet me, and when they called my name, I was calm. I got to hear his strong heartbeat for about 30 minutes and they told me it sounded great! He is a strong little guy!
In between waiting for the ultrasound and trying to get Blake to find me in the hospital, the time flew by. I was getting mad because it had been at least 30 mins and he still wasn't there. After about 15 minutes on the phone we both realized he was at the wrong hospital. Ooops but don't worry I have instilled in his brain that we WILL be at Mo Bap for delivery, lol!
He finally came in when I was just about finished with the ultrasound. I really don't know what to say about this experience. The nurse was very nice but she measured the fluid and told me she had a hard time finding pockets of fluid. She also said that she was having a hard time distinguishing fluid from the umbilical cord? Really? The ultrasound machine was not very good, and it was so hard to see anything. Another woman came in and asked if she was almost done because there were 3 others waiting for an ultrasound. This annoyed me as you shouldn't have to rush things like this. She asked if the other woman could come in and take a look. She explained to her she found 12 cm the first time but didn't feel that was right. The other woman said, yep, it looks low, and told her to remeasure it again. So, she did and couldn't get the old numbers out of there so she said she would hand calculate it. She said she got around 10, which would be good if I felt it was right.
I don't know, don't get me wrong, i am sure she knows more what she was doing but I left feeling that she didn't. I see my OB tomorrow so I will definitely let her know this, and I am so ready to go to this appointment I might camp out, lol.
I did get one good thing out of that appointment---we learned he has a head of HAIR! EEEK! Love it! I am ready to meet this little man that has kept me on my toes the last 8 1/2 months.
My sweet husband felt that we needed to get a camera ASAP because it would be the worst thing for him to be born without having one. I swear, this man melts my heart sometimes and I am sure once I see him holding our son, my heart will be nothing but mush. (and yes, i did get a little teary over that....anything lately seems to do that to me!)
oh and one more little thing....I woke up for one of my nightly runs to the bathroom, and because the dog was snoring, lol, but I couldn't go back to sleep because he had the hiccups. SO, STINKING CUTE!
