Connections

I've discovered that, when pregnant, there is nothing better than getting to have an ultrasound (feeling the baby moving around is right up there, too). To get to see the beautiful cashew there on the monitor moving around...there isn't a feeling much like it.

We don't have another ultrasound scheduled until 32 weeks...that's a long ways away (9 weeks to be exact).

But...I have connections :)

My brother, a lawyer, happens to have a client who is an ultrasound technician. How about that??? While he lives 4 hours away, it just so happens to be where we are heading for Thanksgiving. This very nice u/s tech kindly offered to let us come in before the office opens to have a surprise visit with our beautiful baby girl. That's tomorrow...I can't wait.

I'll post pictures as soon as I can.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone out there.

  5. It's lovely that you have supportive family. Your sisters-in-law sound like they are your friends too.
    Reading about your "extra" scan brought back memories of travelling on business with my husband throughout the first 5 months of my son's pregnancy. I took advantage by contacting an OB/GYN in each location so I could keep track of how the little one was doing. After my miscarriages and IVF, I felt entitled to as much information as I could get.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a healthy remainder of your pregnancy.
