So I ended up scheduling with the idiots that had put me on hold for 45 minutes after I had finally gotten through that one time because they answered right away when I tried them a few days later. (I couldn't find a local US tech, so they are the closest) --
Well, over the phone they read you the policy, except one.
So for five days my two daughters have been waiting for this appointment along with myself and my husband. I drink my 32 oz of water and hold it for the hour... I get into registration and they hand me this paper that says "NO CHILDREN UNDER 10 Allowed" .... so this would mean DH and both our daughters could NOT come in the room at all. I was SO ANGRY again!
Why they couldn't have told me this over the phone is beyond me. So I tell her "but I brought both of my kids with me... " and she was like "Your kids are here?" Yes, that is how GOOD my kids are at any place that isn't home LOL
No one could even hear them! They just sit there quietly like the angels they are not!
So she tells me to just ask the tech since the kids are obviously good but another lady said they cannot make exceptions. Apparently the rule is new, only in place for the last few months after some tech's complained about unruly children.
WHATEVER! I canceled and walked out. No way I am letting my husband and my children miss the big US! I am also filing a formal complaint with the US tech supervisor and the office staff supervisor and asking that they implement a rule that they MUST disclose this information over the phone. I mean, we had to reschedule everything so that DH and the kids could be there -- also, what are single mom's supposed to do?
I called my old sonographer, he's about 45 miles away, and they will fit me in, I just have to talk to the scheduler in the morning and see what she can do for me. They even include a baby bonding session - it's a 60 minute US and it includes 3D/4D imaging, movie CD, and about 60 fetal photos and all children are welcome.
I should have just done it to begin with.
End of rant! LOL
On the other hand, I am happy I get to go back to the old sonographer. I loved using them before and they have much better equipment there anyways.
