WOW, today I was going for a routine Dr. visit - 11 weeks - tomorrow 12! Whoo hoo! Hoping to soon be out of the Yucks!! First I hate, hate, hate when the Dr. you are to see is on call! That is always frustrating and they will ALWAYS deliver while you are waiting. So, I waited a hour for a room b/c the Dr. was delivering a baby!
Get a room and the nurse says - "Let's see if we can hear the heartbeat!" I love that heartbeat and I heard a heartbeat but they said "That's yours!" DANG! The nurse searched and searched and called another nurse in to search - nothing. She said the Dr. is gonna want to do a sonogram so get ready for that! When she left the room immediate tears! I was so anxious! I didn't want to make a scene - I had no reason to worry YET! I held it together as I just prayed for peace and prayed that my baby was safe. A million thoughts went through my mind, from how to tell people I'd miscarried to wonder how long it's been like this. What kept me calm was that I had not had any "complications". And I did get calm - while waiting the nurse came in and said, "the Dr. went to delivery again!" AGAIN!! AAHHH!! I waited about 30-45mins with the sono machine right next to me and if I could have figured that thing out I would have tried to see the baby myself - realizing Jason and I didn't have the money to fix what I would have probably broke I kept my hands to myself. I had gotten myself together and in comes Dr. Ross - a whirlwind rushing back up - he was full of apologies and knew I was a wreck waiting for him - the tears were back full force. He said let's get this done so you can relax and then we can talk! He said, "I'm gonna let you know the minute I see something!" and then those words - "We're FINE!!" Tears still come streaming! How exciting - we're fine! And I got to see my sweet baby! That heart just a beating - I even saw a kick! My tears of sadness were all of sudden replaced with laughter and tears of joy! He said, "Oh, he's even big! Look, head, backbone, legs..." His excitement matched mine! We just watched all of us - Dr, nurse, and me! I must say I LOVE my practice - they seem to be really in it with you! I know the wait was horrible but the result was GREAT an answer to prayer for me! I wasn't expecting so much emotion even still but it's amazing to see this little person - no longer a mouse folks!! And "We're FINE!" I know it's hard to make out sono pictures but I wanted to share with you what brought me so much relief and joy this morning...So here is the souvenir from a hard day at the Dr.
