16 Weeks and more!

Lots of news to report today! This morning I had my 16 week checkup. The Dr. said everything from our last ultrasound was normal and actually moved my due date up to September 2nd because I was measuring ahead. YAY! I was then told that I could go to the Ultrasound facility (just a few doors down) and make my appointment for our BIG ultrasound! (so far soooo good...)

So on my merry way I went, (and on my nicest behavior so I might just get what I want)..,

...and what did I find but what must have been the most unhappy receptionist ever who certainly didn't want to help make my life easier so that I could go down to Orange County and see family and perhaps do a little boy or girl shopping in a couple weeks. :(

You know what she did? Booked my appointment for the day AFTER I was planning to get HOME from the OC. (she swore up and down there was absolutely nothing available until that exact date). nice.

Was she Crazy?!

So began what I believe the very first moment of serious pregnancy hormones (Chris may have a different idea of my mood levels)... I maintained my composure, booked my day-late-and-a-dollar-short (literally) appointment and went back to work. I know I should have been thrilled just to have the actual date set, but man she'd really ruffled my feathers and my plans!

So...for the most part, I got over it as the morning passed...

BUT I just decided to call their other office on a whim and see if THEY had any availability... they didn't, BUT the first office I went to this morning DID have an appointment for the day I was planning on going DOWN to OC. WTF!? That unhappy woman this morning had lied to me! (not nice). So I appreciatively scheduled my appointment and now have my fingers crossed that mean lady from the other office never catches on!

Our appointment is scheduled for April 4th at 9:00 a.m. YAY!

Ok... Now to the weekly update...

Watch what you say... tiny bones forming in baby's ears mean the little one can now pick up your voice. Eyebrows, lashes and hair are starting to fill in, and taste buds are forming.

Have a good day!

Absolutely beautiful. I love the way you write. So sweet. Thanks for the good update. I am putting September 2nd on my calendar for time off from work. I will go wherever you go to see that little baby. Hang in there! I am proud of you.....and love you so very much. xoxoMom

Today's interview in Goodyear AZ went reasonably well, but of course Lockheed moves at a snail's pace, so I'm sure it will be awhile before I hear anything. I had fun this evening driving around Goodyear and the surrounding area with Jen on the phone directing me to every "cute" house on the internet. Too bad the housing market sucks, or I'd think Jen has a promising career in real estate! Anyway, Jen - miss you and Fifi tons and I can't wait to get home! Love you.
