Rough morning, but a great day after all

Chris and I both took off work today to go to our 20 week doctor's appointment and ultrasound that has been scheduled for a month. We got to the office and the nurse told us that they don't do ultrasounds on Friday, so we wouldn't be able to do it today. I, of course, am a little emotional, so of course I started crying. I was really looking forward to seeing Logan today and I was just disappointed. We had our normal appointment and everything was great. I had gained three pounds in the last month, so that puts my total at 8. I feel pretty good about that. We heard his heartbeat and Dr. Hirsch said everything was perfect. So, we are going back next Thursday to do the ultrasound.

After the doctor we went and registered at Babies R Us. I have been doing my homework by reading Consumer Reports, Baby Bargains book, and reading online reviews. I had a spreadsheet of everything we wanted to register for, and even with that we felt a little overwhelmed. It was a lot of fun, and it was cute watching Chris get excited over all the things for Logan.

Even though we were both exhausted we came home and finished working in Logan's room. Chris hung up the letters and shelves he had painted and I put up the decals on the wall. It is really starting to look like a nursery. We are both in love with the room and we can't wait until he is here to use it.

  1. Ryan was overdue and since he was our second they thought inducing would be a good idea. So we told everyone, got ready, went to the hospital on that Friday morning at 6:30 - and waited and waited. Finally around 10 they called us up to the ob floor and told us there was just no room. They pointed out all the women on beds there in the halls. They told me to come back on Monday! Of course, I cried and cried. So we went home, had a good weekend (after Mike called everyone and told them no baby), went back on Monday and had him. Just thought it was funny how that correlated with your experience.
