Congratulations on a little girl. We have one girl and she will remain our only one since this little one will be a boy. They are so much fun, you'll have some very special mama and daughter moments for sure.
My Ultrasound - The Rant - Page 2
Congratulations! I'm glad the news that your having a girl has helped you to move forward from your terrible ultrasound experience.
That's some awful bedside manner and downright rude. It's too bad when the u/s techs seem to forget that this is an exciting and happy time for us ladies. I had a terrible experience with an u/s tech at the local hospital too (at 6 1/2 weeks due to abdominal pain) - he refused to tell me anything at all and would not let me see the screen.
I was so worried my 20 week u/s experience would be just as disappointing. I just had mine yesterday at a medical imaging clinic (MedVue) and my ultrasound tech was wonderful. She made nice chit-chat while she did the measurements - asked me how my pregnancy was going, etc. and asked me if I would like to know the gender (no). Later they called my hubby into the room and showed us both the screen and gave us a little tour and pointed out lots of body parts (head, hands, heart, bum, legs, cord, etc.) and answered some non-diagnostic questions such as "what's that black circle there?" (the stomach). She gave us a printout of 3 pictures to take home that she captured earlier in the appointment when baby was in a good position for profile pics.
A student was observing (with my permission) so I'm glad to know that the student is learning from such a great example of good bedside manner. For any other Canadian ladies reading, you may likely find that you'll have a more pleasant u/s experience at an out-of-hospital medical imaging centre.
What part of Canada are you in again? I can't believe that happened to you, and also the stuff about the midwives. That's crazy!
We went to CML which has a policy that they won't reveal the gender, so I knew before I went in the room since they had a big sign up in the waiting area. Our lady was nice enough but she had a pretty heavy accent and was kind of quiet, no chit chat, but she did point out body parts and stuff so that was nice. And we got a few pics.
Congratulations on your little girl!!! I hope to find out next week! Or maybe in a few days if I get impatient and call the office lol.
i teared up at this!!!! sooo happy for you!
i love my 3 little girls, and would take another in a heartbeat!
but i would also be thrilled by another little boy.
they're just all so special!
but happy happy happy you got the news after all you went through, and got dresses too. my mom votes for all girls so she can make them the cutest baby clothes. she likes boys, but says they're so much harder to dress!!!
