Friday, November 17, 2006 doctor is mean

We just had our second doctor's appointment today, and the good news is everything is fine, the bad news is that we still didn't get to see the baby, and we won't until DECEMBER 29TH!!!! I thought at the VERY latest we'd get an ultrasound at the next appointment, but it turns out they'll give us a SLIP to get an ultrasound, and I'm supposed to wait until I'm 20 weeks along to get it. That evil place doesn't want me to bond with my baby :-(

I'm just really worried, plus I still don't really FEEL pregnant, so I'll feel so much better once we've seen the baby and made sure it doesn't have any horrible deformities (like the girl on TLC's "Building a new Face", she gave me nightmares!)

The good news is the heartbeat was strong, and the baby is hanging out "high up" instead of laying on my bladder, so the midwife says our baby is cooperative. Let's hope it stays that way!

So then I went and got a massage, plus a manicure and pedicure to celebrate being in the second trimester, and did some errands. It was lovely.

So tonight we will be driving to Bethesda to visit with our friend Dan and then say hi to Matt and Dhanya (and wish Matt a happy birthday!) After that I get to drive home...let's hope I can stay awake!
