Journalling reads: After a silly lady on the reception desk, a very rude nurse and the sonographer leaving us sitting for ages waiting, it was finally time. The doctors had a lot of fears about you, they were worried that all the bleeding and pain might mean that you were not where you were supposed to be. We were scared that you might be another one of our angel babies. But in less than a minute we had all the answers that we needed. You were exactly where you were supposed to be and you had a healthy strong heartbeat. It was such a relief to know that at least for now, you were ok, we could relax for a little while before there were other things for us to worry about. Once we had that reassurance it was ok to see the funny side to all the little details about the appointment, like the fact that they finally had an alternative to tying a blue nitrile glove around the probe since the covers are made of latex and mummy is highly allergic, they were now using latex free condoms. Or the fact that the poor doctor looked so grateful and relieved that my pregnancy would be handled by the Silver Star Team and he didn’t have to read through my long and complicated maternity notes. Or maybe that in a whole row full of sample toilets, mummy managed to pick the only one without a working lock and someone walked in while I was trying to accomplish the very difficult task, of peeing in the little bottle without getting covered. After our visit was over we were left with readjusted dates based on size, your new due date is August 27th. But I have a feeling if you are anything like your brothers, a due date won’t matter one tiny bit to to you, and you will arrive when and where you decide that you want to, just please don’t choose Tescos! 16th January 2009
