Ladies, Remember When...

you were pregant? You went for your first ultrasound and they asked you to show up with a full bladder. You obeyed instructions and showed up filled to the brim. You were so miserable that you wanted to cry...
However...
Once the ultrasound got going and you heard the little heartbeat and saw the little dot the resembled a peanut, part of that misery started to fade because you were focussed on that little human indeed of you.
Now...
Imagine the same scenario. But this time, take away the joy of seeing a little baby and sit through the discomfort for no purpose other than measuring the size of your ovaries.
Add...
A quick scolding because you apparently didn't drink ENOUGH water for their liking.
Throw in...
A dash of a stoic technician who is, of course, not allowed to say anything about what she sees. Ask anyway, because you want to know if you canceled your commitments at church for nothing. When pleading the technician to throw you a bone, the only answer you get is "well, it's interesting"
Not much of a bone...
I guess we'll play the waiting game a little longer. Hopefully, more answers will come on Tuesday.

Oh, I hope everything is o.k., I'll keep you in thoughts and prayer.

I can so relate - I've been though so many ultrasounds the past few month before my surgery last week I thought I was going to scream.

Sometime I would show up with my bladder so full and ready to bust, only to hear the tech. say "oh, honey you didn't need to drink all that water, were using the newer machine this time". Me, "WHAT"!

Oh I hate how they never tell you anything right away... I hope you get some answers soon. Can they get back to you at all before Tuesday? That seems like a long time to wait...

Oh, girl. I know how all that junk goes. :( I'm so sorry, and I hope things turn out well.

Nothing worse than the things we go through as a woman. Especially when our health is on the line.

Prayers and hugs and good thoughts from me for you!!!
