Welcome To Our Garden

I think we got tricked!

Our first OB appt didn't go quite as we had planned yesterday.

We didn't get an ultrasound!

Needless to say I just about lost it! I'll spare you all the drama and just say "that's what I get for assuming". But wouldn't yall think that your first OB visit would include an ultrasound to see if in fact there really was something in there? I mean come on now people! Yes, I'm still a tad bit upset if you couldn't tell.

So our photo shoot has been postponed until Monday at noon. BUT we MIGHT get one today or tomorrow if all goes well. I called our old doc, the RE and told them the deal. I should get a call back from them today with the (hopefully good) news.

To me the appt was a waste. Of course I know it wasn't but they didn't tell me anything I didn't already now. Heck they didn't even tell me anything! We told them everything. I'm trying not to be bitter.....it's hard. I was SO looking forward to seeing 2 LIVING flowers in there and now I have to continue to wait.

All they did was tell us we will continue to use the progesterone aka silver bullets until week 12 or 13 and to take extra folic acid. She did a breast exam and pap and took 3 vials of blood and said everything "felt" fine. Well there's a HUGE difference in her "feeling" and my "seeing".

We SO miss Dr. O and Nurse Wendy! But I'm sure our new doc, Dr. K, will be just fine. We just kinda had a rough first meeting.

booo!!! i'm so sorry for the crappy appt. i hate getting excited about an appt, and then having it be a snoozefest.

so glad you're going to get your way, though.

I'm sorry you didn't get to see them. Waiting is never good - especially when you were so sure you'd get the u/s.
Hopefully today. If not, hopefully tomorrow.

Bummer! I can imagine how frustrated you must feel. I hope you get the pictures sooner then they have scheduled.

Merr said...

Oh darnet! I so know how you feel. That happened to us too. We went in hoping for an ultrasound, but they booked up so we didn't get one. It really sucks to have to wait it out some more. Good luck in getting in today!

All I can say is PHEW! B/c when you didn't post last night I got majorly WORRIED. Don't do that to us, okay? I know you are disappointed and not at all reassured...but I'm glad that nothing has seriously gone wrong. Can't wait for the photo shoot and for you to get some peace of mind seeing those two bouncing away in there!

Oh I am so sorry! I would have been upset too!!! I will say extra prayers for you to get in to the Dr. today-I know it will be hard to wait until Monday!
Sending you love and light. Can't wait to see your little flowers! Holding you all 4 in my prayers.

Myself, I do not care for ultra sound. Never had those when I was pregnant and I am glad. Maybe its best when you are not that far along.
They seemed happy. As long as they don't seem upset, you had a good appointment. Believe me, I know what I am saying. You should have had my first appointment with my second. He said, I need your husband to come in and talk to both of you. Just made my blood turn cold. Be glad they said everything seemed fine. How did we become just an obsessed ultra sound world anyhow?

Thanks so much for your postings. Reading them gave me hope for us and the hope that one day, we'll be where you ladies are!!
