1st Ultrasound!

OMG I was so excited I couldn't even sleep last night! Well, it wasn't so much the excitement that kept me awake as it was the Heavy Construction Equipment Parade going on outside our house! Stupid people, why the hell would they think it's a great idea to make that much noise at 3 o'clock in the morning!? Ugh!

Anyway, we got to the doctor's office a bit early to fill out a mountain of paperwork. Then, my doctor was running late; he was finishing up a c-section at the hospital down the street (he was telling us that he delivered 20 babies over the weekend! Wow!) His assistant did a quick ultrasound to show us the little bean, but couldn't really tell us much. She couldn't give us accurate measurement or anything so they're not even sure if the dates are correct. There wasn't a heartbeat, but neither the doc or his assistant seemed really concerned about it, he said it was probably just too early to see it. I have another appointment in two weeks where they'll do the dating and check the heartbeat. I can't wait for 11/24 to get here!!

When the doctor was done talking to us, he sent me down the hall to get blood drawn. Five HUGE vials later, I was running out the door. I hate giving blood. No, not blood, I hate needles! I couldn't even look when she was taking it, I was staring at the ceiling and biting my thumb to distract myself from the pricking. DH watched... he's so morbid ; )

So far so good. Keep sticking little one!
