Another busy week and lots to blog about. Monday was my 15 week visit with the Dr. I went in hoping for a "freebie" U/S. You know the one that they aren't supposed to do, but will do, if you know someone. But I refused to ask Dr. Beatty because I didn't want to impose on other's appointments but I really wanted to. Mike actually got to go with me and had reminded a million times on the way that the Steelers were playing that night 7:30. Anyway, my appt. was at 4:00 but we got there at 3:30. We walked into a packed waiting room but that wasn't unusual; it was always crowded late in the day. We waited a while and by 4:30 Mike and Arden were getting restless. I don't know who was worse, but they both let me know how long we had been sitting there. I explained to them that there had probably been an unexpected delivery and messed up the whole schedule, but that really didn't work. Finally I got called back about 5:30 and was the last patient in the waiting room. I went in, did all the vitals and the nurse took me to a room and we listened to the HB (158 bpm). I was so glad to hear that because I didn't start feeling any movement until yesterday, so I had no way of knowing if everything was "good". A little later Dr. Beatty came in and asked if everything was ok and then said, "I bet you could get a little sneak peak since you are the last one here." I was soooo thrilled and just knew that I was going to leave that office and know what we were having. So off I go to the water fountain and begin chugging down cups of water. I looked into Craig's room and the door was closed. So I assumed that he was still with a patient. After a couple of minutes of waiting and a few more of Mike telling me we weren't going to make it home for the game, I decided to knock on the door. No answer. He had already gone home.:( Not that I blame him because it was almost 6:00, but I was sad! We head home and make it just in time to see that the game had been postponed because of lightning. So now I have to wait until the 20th of December to find out. I am going to try to keep it a secret from my family until Christmas Day, but it is going to be hard. Do you guys have any fun ideas for the "big reveal?" I have a couple, but I am still open for suggestions!
BTW, the Steelers won the game 3-0. A nail biter I tell ya!
