First, NT scan went super well. So that's good.

HOWEVER. My doctor failed to tell me where it was, so when they wrote down the appt time on their Dundalk, MD office pad (which is already 30 min from me) and told me to be there at 745am, I made work adjustments and went. Only that's not where they were and my dr didn't open til 9 for me to call.

So I live in Baltimore and work in DC. I then drove to the train, took the train in and got to my office at 1030. My dr called around then to tell me the NT scan took place at the birthing center downtown, and I'd have to call them. So I called, explained what happened and they said because i had to have this before 13 weeks, which I'll be on Friday, they could only fit me in today and asked me to be in at 1.

That meant literally packing up my stuff after just sitting down and taking the train back into baltimore and driving back into downtown.

At this point it's 145. They said they were trying their best to squeeze me in. 230 rolls around and they said all the sonogram techs were backed up. 330 comes and goes and they apologized but I was probably gonna be seen last, and their office hours ended at 4. 5 ****** 30 and I get called back.

I was so mad but this made it all better:



Baby is measuring developmentally perfect. Lowest possible risk for downs. Bf is missing a kidney and a carrier for t.a.r. syndrome and his sister has it, so they looked at the limbs and everything looks good but they won't know for sure until the anatomy scan The dr said if the baby had any drastic issues, they'd know, and it doesn't.

This baby was hella active too. Kept touching its face and stretching its legs out showing me long skinny legs and its feet. The tech kept calling it a girl and I asked if she was doing that because she saw anything and she said "can't make that statement, too hard to make an educated guess at this point" but it did give me a twinge of hope that she could be a she. But honestly, everything looked so good and it was so amazing to see the baby move around so much and look like a baby now that i don't care what I'm having.

Ooooh and heartrate was 160.

lol, it seems like mis-communications with medical appointments are the theme of our Due Date club!

I'm glad the NT scan was so good though and I *love* seeing those little baby ultrasound pics

Very interesting about the Ultrasound tech calling baby a she...then quickly backtracking and saying it was too early to tell, lol - it will be interesting to see if her first guess is correct!

Yeah, it was so crazy frustrating but seeing the little one was so worth it. I just can't believe that we have babies that look like babies, it's incredible.

Man what a crazy day!!! But thats GREAT that everything is well with the baby!!!! Soooo cute!!! I love the ultrasound pic!!! I suppose it was all worth it, but seriously these drs need to get their crap together. Thats how I felt when they measured my LMP and I told her it was incorrect, and I was due June 8th, not May31st! But they insisted I was wrong. But the ultrasound tech confirmed I was correct LOL.

What a beautiful baby!!! So glad you got seen, but gracious! I would've lost my patience and probably been the crazy lady in tears. It's amazing how seeing the sweet babies can make all the headache worth it!
