No U/S + Retail Therapy

Well the clinic screwed up and my nightmare came true. I got no ultrasound. With the whole messed up stuff back with my 9 week ultrasound where my doctor asked for it to be scheduled within 7-10 days and they had me scheduled for 8 weeks from then (which was today), they never gave the memo to my dr. that they had cancelled that appointment and just moved me to the 9 week one. The doctor confirmed with me on thursday that I had an u/s appointment today. Such bull.

The lady in the clinic was a cold heartless bitch too. I don't say things like that about people very often but she didn't even react or apologize for the mix up or anything. She told us that they were booked solid until the middle of May. Like that really made me feel better. The paperwork from my dr. was for the first u/s and they had no 45 min slot to give me and even if they had, they wouldn't have taken me because of the paperwork. Even when I started bawling she didn't react. It's the most upset I've been in a LONG LONG time. Oh these hormones are screwing with me.

So DH got on the phone with the doctor's office and explained what was going on. They called the u/s clinic and had the Dr. himself call them. I'm not sure if anything came of that because the clinic has an answering machine 24/7 and they return the calls but the dr. office told me that they would fax in the papers and tell them I needed an u/s within the next 7-10 days. They also confirmed, in nicer words, that the lady in the clinic was always a cold heartless bitch to them as well and always was. Nice of her to be dealing with many pregnant hormonal women while working for a GOVERNMENT run clinic...

So I cried lots and I was so upset. I still am. This mix up totally screwed up my announcement at work tomorrow. I'd been planning on announcing with the picture in the staff room and a "Guess Who" underneath for a LONG LONG time. I'm going to need to find a new way to do it now :(

DH and I went to Thyme Maternity for some retail therapy. It made me feel a lot better. I got a 3 pc pajamas set (in my hands), as well as the purpley pink shirt and the grey lounge pants. I also got to chat with another pregnant woman there (first time I've been further along than the other shopper) and talk to her about her work (in a school) and announcing to work and point out some of my favourite clothing there! She actually bought the shirt I pointed out to her (2nd picture)!



  1. I love that second shirt! I am trying to avoid buying maternity, but I have bought some. I love H&M!

  2. That sounded like I thought you went to H&M. I am just saying you should check it out. Way cheaper and cuter maternity!

    1. We don't have H&M... The only stores here that have maternity is Thyme Maternity (avg of $40 a shirt reg priced) and Wal Mart and they have like 0 selection.
