Way past due for an update!

I have been horrible this year about blogging! I guess I got sucked into Facebook and that is where all the pictures and updates end up.

Well...our biggest news for this year so far, would have to be that we are expecting a baby the beginning of January! I am now 24 weeks and feeling great! Some of you already know what went on this week but here goes anyway for the record.

I had an appointment with my midwife Monday, she said she would like me to get an ultrasound. Not necessarily because she thinks anything is wrong, but just to check and make sure everything is fine. I was a bit shocked to say the least! I talked it over with Evan and we decided that it would be fine and to just go ahead and do it. I made and appointment for Tuesday at 4:30. I called the ultrasound place that morning to ask how many people could come into the room. The lady told me nobody could! I was so mad and told her that was CRAP! This is supposed to be a family time where my husband and girls could see the baby with me! I was also going to see if Mom could come too. She put me on hold and when she came back she said the rooms are too small and they have liabilities because of the radiation, the girls can't go in, just mom and husband. I told her I would call back later and hung up. Um...Radiation??? How can that be safe for the baby??? I don't think she knew what she was talking about. I am pretty sure they don't use radiation.... how about sound waves...ultra sound???

I called Mary (my midwife) and cried, asked her if she knew of another place I could go. She said to just go and then get a 3D or 4D ultrasound at Arrowhead. I could barely talk and told her I wasn't doing all this for fun!. She said she knows and to just get it done. She said she and Nedra are working on a letter to this lab about how rude they are to all their clients. We hung up and I bawled for awhile.

Adalyn was getting a bit nervous and while she hugged me she told me, "Don't cry mommy! Be happy!!!" After crying for awhile, I remembered my conversation with the lady that schedule I called the lab back and asked for her. She came on and I couldn't control my emotions. She kept asking me questions, like are you having pain? no, are you okay? yeah, It took me awhile to get my emotions together to talk to her. I told her that yesterday when I called, I asked for a time in the afternoon that my KINDERGARTNER could come, now I am being told no one can be with me, This is NOT what I want!!! She was very sweet and put me on hold for awhile and came back, she said she couldn't get a hold of the tech I was scheduled to be with, but she talked to the manager and will try to get me the biggest room (she said they are all tiny) and Evan and the girls can be with me. YEA!

I was so relieved I sat here and cried some more! A few hours later I got a call from the lab saying they needed to reschedule because of a mix up with the scheduling of the tech at two different locations. REALLY!? Why was I not surprised??? I was actually fine with that and re-scheduled for today.

SO!!!! We went today Evan AND our girls!!! Everything and everyone was very nice! The baby is healthy, measurements were right on...few days later (Jan 7th) than the due date the midwife gave me (Jan 3rd), but I am late anyway so no biggie!

Here is what we saw........
