>8/9/10

>I just checked my calender and noticed the date…6/9/10 – exactly two months until Melissa’s due date!

It seems all things are going smoothly so far! I went with Mel to her final ultrasound on Monday. It was what I called the “Bonus Ultrasound” because she only had to have it because of the gestational diabetes. We (well I) love the ultrasound lady at our Dr.’s office, she’s nice and happy and gladly gives you info about the baby…but they had to send us somewhere else for the bonus (reasons unknown).

Bonus Ultrasound Lady (BUL) takes Mel and I back to a room. The bed Mel lays on is literally a gurney. There’s a huge sign in the room that says:

ULTRASOUND TECHNICIAN CAN
ONLY
TELL YOU THE BABY’S GENDER.
ALL OTHER INFORMATION
WEIGHT, LENGTH, ETC WILL BE
SENT TO YOUR DOCTOR.

BUL: When was your last period?
Mel: Umm…
BUL: I mean…when is your due date?
Mel: 8/9/10
BUL: Is this your first child?
Mel: Yes

She slings the monitor in Mel’s direction and starts.

BUL: {speaking quickly and hitting the screen with her fingernail} Face, Forehead, Lips, Eyes, Arm
Mel: {Looking uncomfortable} stares at her blankly…
BUL: {Slings monitor back towards her, launches forward, tears off print out} These are for you.
Mel: {Now looking afraid for her life}

The BUL continued to probe and measure in silence. She didn’t tell us what she was doing, make happy baby conversation, or anything! AND poor Mel said she was digging so hard on her abdomen that she hurt afterwards! MEAN BUL!

You should also know that these were some of the WORST ultrasound pictures I’ve ever seen. She gave us 2 prints of her looking directly at the “camera” – totally creep! One we couldnt decipher and one of her profile.

I guess I didnt realize how much time Nice Ultrasound Lady spent getting, good, clear pictures and explaining things to us!
