I had my 15 week baby appointment today. It was a spectacle to say the least.
First of all, while I was in the waiting room a former co-worker (who I had recommended see my doctor) came in for her appointment and saw me. She. Freaked. OUT. She was screaming, "Oh my gosh - JILLIAN! - You are the reason I go here!!!" Then she told everyone that worked there that I referred her (she isn't really a shy person, if you couldn't tell).
Next, the nurse called me out of the waiting room to get a urine sample. I went into the bathroom, peed (completely forgetting to get a sample), washed my hands and went back to the waiting room. Two minutes later the nurse came in looking confused and asked for my sample.
"Oh, oops... I did go to the bathroom, but I forgot to get a sample."
ENTIRE waiting room starts laughing, and many "welcome to pregnancy" and "baby stole her brain" comments start flying.
Lastly, my doctor walks into the waiting room to get me for my exam but instead of calling my name he says "Miss Popular, you're next" (I have refereed SEVERAL patients to him, so he assumes I am some sort of socialite). As I get up to head to the back he announces to the waiting room, "I mean it - she probably has a thousand friends on Facebook!"
Did my 60 year old doctor really just make a Facebook reference?!?!?
Anyway, on to the reason I was at the doctor - MY BABY!
Baby looks great. (S)he was being difficult so we saw a great profile for a second then it moved and this was the best picture we could get:
Baby had 2 arms, 2 legs, great heart beat and was moving like a crazy person. We also got our order to have a Level II sonogram in 4 weeks where we will find out the sex! I don't know anyone at that office, so hopefully it will be less eventful!
