No Place To Hide!

I had my pre-natal check-up on Tuesday.  I was late getting there because I got stuck at work… literally.  (Melting ice is bad under the front wheels of your car, especially on an incline.)  When I got to the clinic, I had to wait almost 40 minutes to be called back because it was one of those “OMGWTFBBQ-I-HAVE-TO-BE-SEEN-TODAY!!!!!!!!!!” days for my doctor.  Having had a glass of water before I left, I was a little uncomfortable.

After getting called back, doing the UA, having my vitals taken, and all that stuff, we checked my measurements (I’m perfectly where I need to be), my weight (lost 0.1 lbs this week), and listened for a heartbeat.  Given that the little parasite baby has been eating off my fat reserves, we got the heartbeat immediately as it has pretty much lost all of its padding and hiding places!!!!!!!!

My next ultrasound (for gender) will be on Friday, January 30th at 9 a.m.  This is good because it means that I don’t have to deal with all the “OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I’M IN THE E.R. AND I HAVE A BROKEN BONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” people (who were going to be shot last time if I’d had to wait any longer — they make you have 32 oz. of liquid in your bladder for two hours prior to the ultrasound and I was getting crabby) and I can actually work most of my day.

The “superspecial ultrasound to check for PAA” will be on February 20th at 10 a.m. in Great Falls.

Meanwhile, I’m thankful that one of my regualr skirts from before my pregnancy still fits.  Granted, I got it a size larger because I hate having pencil-thin skirts but it does fit and it works for winter weather as long as it isn’t sub-zero.  I’m also carrying my baby fairly high so my hips and lower abdomen are still pretty normal.

    I have no idea what PAA is but the rest sounds good to me!
