Ugh Ultrasound... **updated with pics**
So I was freaked out before my ultrasound and now I'm even more so.
It all started out ok but then the tech was taking a LONG time and a LOT of pictures. Then she said I could go empty my bladder and bring my hubby into the room and we'd 'meet back there'. Ok, this has never happened to me before. I've been told to empty my bladder before but I've never gone to get hubby myself and had her go away like that.
After I brought DH back into the room we waited for SO LONG for her to come back. SO long. I told him what was going on and how I was super scared. He figured it was fine. Then she comes back in and says she has to look at the plancenta again. So we wait again.
The fun part came next, she showed us baby's feet! My favorite part. They seemed to be crossed at the ankles! Super cute. Then baby's face. He/she had his/her hands up by the face looking so cozy. We saw hands and legs and the spine. The spine is SO cute!
So then things got serious again. The ultrasound tech left again to go 'look at the pictures'. We sat in that room for so long. I was scared. Then she finally came back and asked if we had time to wait 15 minutes and try again for some measurements. I was already freaked out by this point and near tears. She probably could tell him my face and said everything was 'ok'. She said that there was a contraction in the front of my uterus making it hard to get a good look at the placenta. She wanted me to wait 15 mins to see if the contraction goes away. Does this sound legit to anyone?
So we waited a painstaking 15 minutes and then went back in. She said the contraction was gone and she got her measurement. Sigh. By now I'm a mental wreck.
So we came home and I've left a voicemail for the midwife to call me because I'm really scared. Sigh.
Oh, on a lighter note...baby is breech again like my DD was. This one had better turn or mama is going to go postal on the little one. LOL. I know that they move around a lot at this size, but it sort of figured!

Hubby just fixed my other computer so I was able to scan the photos. I paid $15 for four face photos. A hand or a foot would have been nice. Maybe a spine? Annnnnyways...
Here's the obligatory alien shot:
And cute little baby's profile. I hope he/she has my nice lips! They look good!
