gloomy.gif Through a bunch of mixups which I blame on my husband, but aren't entirely all his fault, I managed to show up an hour late for my appointment. I have rescheduled it for Monday, but I have to go an hour away to get it, as in my city, the next appointment is a month away (and I can't make that time anyways).

Thanks everyone. I was terribly upset about it at first, especially when they told me that I couldn't get another appointment until January! (they had one time in December that I couldn't make, then none till mid January)

 

But its really for the best. I was able to find a great place in Toronto to go, where they take the time to give a personal approach to their practice, and with great facilities, instead of the standard, assembly line, rushed, crowded experience in my city. If I had known from the start that I could use my requisition anywhere, not just at the place named on it, then I would have done this from the start. I had a problem with the person who did my 6 week one, and was very nervous about a repeat bad experience. Just talking to the receptionist at the new place has me feeling much better about this. I understand that this is a medical procedure, not something for entertainment value, but bedside manner is important in all settings, and does a lot to improve my experience. So in the end, I am happy (although waiting a few more days is hard!)

Toronto?  Dealic, are you near me? :)

The place I go to get my ultrasounds done is really great.  A small place with one technician who is just lovely and very chatty, and it never seems to be busy because they give you big appointment slots.  We weren't able to get a clear profile shot (baby on tummy or hand up) and it was recommended we go back to try again to make sure there was nothing wrong, so I'll be back on December 6th!

I'm in Barrie smile.gif I am glad you have a good place there, I hope the one I am going to is good too. One of the things they mention on their website is how they schedule long slots so they aren't rushed and you aren't waiting for your appointment past your scheduled time. The lady on the phone was really sweet about getting me in on very short notice (I was really upset about missing my time here, and wanted it as soon as possible), and what she said on the phone was just so refreshing. It seemed much more human. I can't wait to go. Plus, it means spending a day in Toronto with my husband, which is always fun too!

Oh dealic, I'm sorry.  I'd be really disappointed, too.  But maybe it was for the best...?

Its a GIRL!!!!!!  stork-girl.gif 

 

We finally had our ultrasound today, and the experience was amazing! So worth the drive and the extra wait! The clinic was wonderful, we were early and got in BEFORE our appointment time, and the technician was super friendly and informative. She showed us everything, and when it came time to find out the sex, she showed us, and I got to announce it. (and it was clear enough that I knew right away). I am so elated, and the family is thrilled. This is the first grandbaby on my side, and the second on his, but the first grand daughter. Everyone is going nuts and apparently going shopping as well. smile.gif I know my family at least will go a bit overboard with girly things, but surprisingly, I have this sudden urge to increase the pink in my life too... love.gif I am just so thrilled to know WHO is in there now and to be able to start calling her by name. What a great day!

IT'S A GIRL!!!  love.gif

 

Just found out this morning. I did have a "feeling" especially since this pregnancy has just been SO DIFFERENT from my boy, but it's such a relief just KNOWING either way. Yay!! joy.gif
