I forgot to post about my appt Thursday, which is kind of funny because I really almost forgot about the appointment itself! I was at the gym Thursday morning and all of a sudden it popped into my head that I had an appt today and no sitter! It was a reschedule from Tuesday when Dh was home so I guess it's not really my fault. So I go to the appt with both girls in tow. Belle is 4 and MA is 18 mths and we get there early, that was my second mistake. The girls are being pretty good at this point although we are taking up an aisle of chairs with hopping in and out and dropping toys and magazines everywhere, but they are reasonably quiet. The office is just coming back from lunch and by some Christmas miracle I am called first. My OB's nurse is 2/3's saint because she just laughs and plays with the kids and lets them get weighed while taking all my stuff down. Then the part I wasn't sure how was going to play out, my peeing in a cup. I take both girls with me into the bathroom and MA decides that it is her life's mission to get that cup of pee and investigate. If you think fending off an 18 mth old while sitting on the potty with your pants down holding a cup of pee is easy, then you are delusional. I finally hid the cup behind the toilet, get myself righted, and then realized that the toilet isn't working and I can't flush. I pop the lid off and start monkeying with the inner workings of the toilet, I then realize that my BS from college clearly has not prepared me for the complexities of toilet plumbing and just say, "screw this!" I put my pee in the window, wash my/Belle/MA's hands and thank goodness that Belle isn't asking more questions about the pee in the window and leave the bathroom. My sainted nurse grabs my diaper bag and purse and puts me in the closest room. The dr. shows up a few minutes later. I'm sure we talked about something, but the only thing I remember is him asking me if I had any questions and I said "How the hell do you do this with three?!" He laughed and said that would be a question for his wife (they have 4). I then grabbed the girls and left. When I was trying to make an appointment while both kids were dodging behind the counter and waving at everyone, I told the lady that I wanted a 1:30 so the babysitter would only have to deal with 1 kid. I just wanted to be able to look at the baby on the u/s and not be yelling and flailing around at the other two. Yeah, it was a good appointment I think. A FAR cry from my first pg experiences. I hope you guys got a laugh out of my day, I sure did.
