and it was hell!!! They wanted him to lay naked (only in a diaper) on a hospital bed while hooked up to a heart monitor, and have them ultrasound his belly and heart, and they expected him to lay completely still for an hour! Didn't happen. Finally I had to hold him and put him to sleep, then they were able to get what they needed. Poor thing. We will find out the results in a few days I guess, I hate the waiting game!!
An hour???!!! Pretty unrealistic huh? I hope everything comes back ok. The waiting game is horrible.[/b]
I am sorry it was such a bad experience. I guess we got lucky. I had Charlie in an outfit where the shirt snapped on the side, so I just had to open it. Our tech played a video of an aquarium overhead which mesmerized Charlie so I guess that's why I didn't notice how long he had to lay still for.... But it's over! I hope you get GREAT results.
I'm sorry you had a rough day. I don't understand why hospital staff think babies can lay still. I had the same problem when my dd had her blood drawn at her 1 year appointment. Hope you get the results soon!!
