our first ultrasound...what a great experience!

So we went to our first ultrasound a couple of weeks ago. We were so excited to see our surprise baby! Unfortunatley it was the ultrasound appointment from he**. Looking back it was all absolutely worth it, but for it to have been a more relaxed and enjoyable experience would have been nice. We showed up to our appointment about 10 minutes early to do the paper work. Our first scheduled appointment was cancelled the night before we were supposed to go and so our appointment had to be post poned for another 2 weeks. With Logan and I both having over 21 units, finding time that fits both of our schedules is really hard. We finally found a couple of hours inbetween some of our class. Logan had to miss a Physics class and I had to miss one of my sociology classes but they promised to have us out of there intime to make it to our later classes. We sat and waited for an hour and a half in the lobby and still had not been called to go back. At this time we started to get worried because it was looking like I was going to miss my spanish class and quiz. Finally I got up and talked to the receptionist and asked her if she knew how much longer and told her our situation with school. She of course told me what they always say... "it shouldn't be much longer". 2 hours after arriving we still hadn't been called back and now I was missing my class and Logans exam was an hour away (it could not be made up)... and it was going to be rush hour on the freeway. I watched other women that came in and hour after me go in and get ultrasounds and leave and I was still waiting. I realized it was because they were angry and were yelling and complaining the receptionist and I was acting patient and nice. So finally 2 and half hours after my appointment time I walked up and told her I was leaving that we would have to reschedule and that I was really upset with the service I had recieved. After that we were pulled back right away... but the mood was kind of killed. I felt rushed to get back to school and frustrated about missing my class and quiz. Because we didn't have a lot of time the Dr. rushed our ultrasound so our appointment that we waited 2 and half hours for took a total of 8 minutes. It was so great seeing the our little baby but so sad that the mood was a little dim and rushed. Hopefully next time things will be a little more relaxed.

That sucks that it didn't turn out the way you wanted,(Doesn't it suck when you have to be mean to get someone to take you seriously?) but awesome that you got to see your little baby. Isn't it exciting? Has reality sunk in yet? How are you feeling? Any morning sickness?Look forward to seeing pictures as you grow.
