an ultrasound to remember


these last 6 months have been tough on our little family.
from me being sick from the pregnancy, to my husband working 60 plus hours a week, and with him traveling.

i am very lucky to have a husband who is a very busy hardworking man.
so, i made sure to schedule my ultrasound later in the day hoping he wouldn't end up missing it!

trey, lucy, my sister emily, and i were waiting at the doctors office on the second floor of the building.
it was time for my appointment, the ultrasound tech was going to call us any second, and my husband was nowhere to be seen!

he had never been to the doctors office, it is kind of hard to find, so i was worried.

we were all perched next to the windows facing the parking lot to see if we could see him driving up.
finally we see his car race in...he jumps out...

and just watch the video to see what happens next...

trey thought it was the funniest thing to see his dad sprinting from his car, through the parking lot, and into the building.  we were all getting a kick out of it really.
except for lucy that is...she does not like it when people laugh at other people :o)

while my husband was coming up the elevators to the second floor, the ultrasound tech calls us back.
i run over to her and ask if we can wait just one second for my husband. 

this place is like a maze of ultrasound rooms, and i knew it would be hard to find us if he missed us. 
 right then the elevator doors open and all is well.

so i think...

we get into the ultrasound room, i am laying on the bed, and the ultrasound is just starting when i look over at my husband and he mouths the words "i really have to pee."


i have had enough of his shenanigans by now and pretend i have no clue what he is saying so we can proceed. :o)

after just a few minutes, we find out we are having a girl!

(i really just think she is the cutest thing i have ever seen!)

i then give him the go ahead to leave for the restroom.
after about 20 minutes the ultrasound tech comments on if he is ok or not.
i say "he is probably just lost out there trying to find the room we are in."

sure enough, with only a few minutes left in the ultrasound, my husband finally finds us with a story to tell about how he walked in on a women having an ultrasound who was not his wife! ha!

he eventually went to the front desk and received directions on how to find his wife and family.


it made for an eventful and unforgettable ultrasound :o)
i was really just glad my husband made it and all was well with our sweet little princess!

now it's time to really start thinking about a name for this little darlin'.

Hahaha, that was a great story! I was laughing watching the video too! Congrats on finding out you are having a girl! My baby (well, 15-monther) still smiles SO big whenever I show him your picture! It's so cute! (I'm the one who sent you the email like 8 months ago or so showing him smiling at your pic).

Haha! How fun that baby #3 will have a memorable story about when you were pregnant with her. Congratulations on another girl! I am also a momma who has HORRIBLE pregnancies filled with non-stop vomiting and iv's so I know how wonderful it can feel to finally have some FUN news in a pregnancy. I pray you continue to feel better <3

ERIN said...

Very Funny! Miles said Lucy looks like Margo and Trey laughs sounds like Margo?

Miles ALWAYS forgets what room we are in at the hospital. This last time. when I had Reef Miles left the room, when he came back he was confused what room was ours and started to walk into a room until he heard a women in labor. thank goodness for those privacy curtains :)
