Today we had our second doctor's appointment. Everything went well, and it was great to see the baby again! This video is not as clear as the last one, because apparently our baby is stubborn already! And the heartbeat was very faint so I didn't load that video this time.

In the first part of the video, the doctor is measuring the baby. It is just under 3 inches from head to bum! At the end of the video you can see the full baby. It's legs are curled up under and it is laying on the placenta.

The doctor says it has good posture, but who knows! From the way it is now, it is hunched over so I don't know why that would be considered good posture.

Iin the video there is a clear view of the spine!

The doctor had a med student with her today who did the first half of the ultrasound. She had a hard time fitting the head, body, and legs all onto the screen. Then Julia (my doc) took over and she had a hard time as well. She kept commenting on how difficult my child was being! It gets that from it's dad!!!

Hopefully if the baby is more cooperative during our next visit (March 26) we will get to find out what we are having!

On Call Week

Sean has been on call for work ALL WEEK. This has really never been a problem before, even during the busy time of year. But the week started with the comment of "it is our slow time, I will be lucky to get just one call at night, let alone get all my wanted hours this week". I call b.s. on that statement.
Last night was the first time Sean was home at a DECENT time. He got home around 7 (after going to work at 7 in the morning). But this was the only night he was home before I was in bed, or on my way to bed. He has been getting home past 11 every other night, and tonight apparently is yet another. It is now almost 10 and he is doing some weird job at the Hospital...who cares if the sick people are cold, just blame it on their illness (sorry sick people, but I miss my husband).
Tomorrow I work in the morning, and Sunday we have church at 11. I can only cross my fingers in hopes of seeing my husband the next two nights.
I feel so bad for those who work opposite shifts from their spouse. I suck at going without seeing mine. Dont take a husband away from his emotional and ornery pregnant wife! It just makes her more emotional and ornery.
