We had our "BIG" Ultrasound with Kaiser to check on the baby's progress, they take several measurements, etc. The appointment was at 12:30 so I left work a little early, did my water prep (ugh!) and got there around 12:20. I had called at 11 am to ask if they were on time and if I should do my water prep as scheduled. They never said "yes we are on time" but they told me to go ahead with my scheduled water prep times, which to me meant, they were on time! So when I checked in I said, are you guys on time, because I already have to go pee! She said Oh I think so, you should be her first patient when she returns from lunch. (This is one of the best parts) Then she hands me a Dixie cup and says, "well if you really have to pee try to just let out this much (and points to the middle of the Dixie cup). Bahhahahaha, was my reaction, then I quickly asked her if she had ever tried "cutting it off" once the flood gates opened! So they sent me into a internal waiting room where Karl met me shortly after. I soon saw the US tech walk down the hall and go into the US room. Great I thought! She is back from lunch, let's get in there are see out little guy! Two seconds later she walks out with her purse and her lunch box.....um wait a minute, I thought I would be her first patient when she returned from lunch, why is she just leaving for lunch? She grabbed my paper work and said " I am running about an hour behind, feel free to go grab some lunch and come back around 1:30". Wait what! So the first thing I did was PEE, then Karl and I went to the mall across the street and bought Parker a little something for his room. The Ultrasound was fun, Parker was alllll over the place (my fault I had my one soda for the day with lunch and he was enjoying it too)! The tech kept saying she was chasing him around and was having a hard time getting good pictures of everything she needed. She did confirm he was still a BOY, yay! and got us some cute profile shots to give to the girls!
Today has been a calm relaxing day. Karl woke up like a new man and was up and off to work, I stayed home as Payton still had her fever and although my stomach felt better I was totally weak and wiped out, mentally and physically! It is 2:00, I'm still in my PJ's along with the girls and I wouldn't have ended this crazy week any other way!
