We sit there for about 30 more minutes before a nurse come to take me back to triage me, just like they do at the regular OB office. You know, weight, blood pressure, and of course, pee in a cup. Which leads me to the next part. I was told to drink at least 32 oz of water before the appointment for the ultrasound, so imagine my surprise when I got to pee first???? CRAZY! Anyway, all looked great and I am up 8.8 pounds since my 1st appointment in November. Not too bad considering all that I've been eating!
Back into the waiting room I went. I sat for another 15-20 minutes before being called back for the US. All looked great. Baby is measuring a day ahead, but we are keeping the current date due to the fact that I had the follicle scan without an ovulation the day before the new date and the new Dr said he still wants to stick with July 14.

I had prayed and begged God for this day for a very long time and it was so much better than I thought it would be. I know you want to see pics, but it has been a LONG day (more on that tomorrow). I am off tomorrow and Friday for my Grandmother's funeral and I hope to run by my mom's office and get the pics scanned. I have to find something to wear to the funeral, so I'm sure there might be some baby clothes bought as well!
