Waste of time

So, we went for our follow up ultrasound appointment today...to check Avery's spine (she didn't cooperate last time)

Sadly, this time wasn't much different. Our appointment was scheduled for 3:30 (the last ultrasound appointment of the day). The ultrasound technician called us back at 3:40. We were out by 3:45. It was a waste of time.

She took 1 picture of Avery's neck, pushed so hard on Meg's pelvic bone that she actually hurt her (Meg not Avery) and told us to come back again.

As if her impatient demeanor wasn't bad enough, what made it worse was that they didn't have any ultrasound appointments for January 6th (the day of our next regular check up). SO...we had to schedule one for the 10th.

Meg's going to call the doctor tomorrow to ask if the ultrasound is really necessary. All of the other tests came back fine. I don't see why we can't just wait until our final ultrasound. I guess time will tell.

On a more positive note, Avery looked great. She was moving all around...I just wish we could have seen more of her! (I could stare at her heart beating for hours!)

I'll post Meg's 21 week photos this weekend. Until then, Happy Christmas shopping! (We have yet to even start!)

  2. honestly, unless you're really concerned about it, I'd just skip the extra ultrasound. Then again, it might be nice to be able to see her again and say hi!

  3. I think that's what we're going to do. I'd love to see her again, but it just seems unnecessary!
