just a reminder...

The phone rang...
"Hello, Paige, we're just calling to remind you about your scheduled ultrasound appointment on Wednesday at 1pm."
i almost laugh. Do i tell her i've thought of little else? Or that i have a count down chart at the back of my journal? Or how about that every, single morning, i've told the kids how many more days we'd have to wait before going to see the wee one on that grainy black & white screen...
"i didn't even come close to forgetting." i say.
i can hear her smiling on the other end of the phone.
"Do you remember your instructions?"
"i have to drink about a gallon of water an hour before, so i'm squirming..."
"um, just a litre" She laughs.
Ya, right... tell that to my bladder.
"See you on Wednesday." She hangs up.
Baby, i am a huge nerd & i can't wait to see you in your secret hiding place...

Hope baby cooperates and you get a good view! And I sympathize with the full bladder bit... I remember the medical personnel telling me part way thru the exam that I could "go pee a little bit" -- and I wondered how on earth you could do that when you were so desperate to get rid of all the fluid!!! Later we went to a specialist with a "high tech" machine and you didn't have to do the full bladder bit, they had the capability of seeing what they needed without that part... so maybe someday that discomfort will be a thing of the past!

You're having your ultrasound right now and I'm sitting here in a puddle of tears so excited for you. Hugs!! I hope you email us about your ultrasound! You are sooo not a nerd! You are simply being real and sharing your enthusiasm and if that's nerdy and not normal than shame on the rest of the world!
