Yesterday I had my 10 week appointment and did not have an ultrasound.

Apparently there was a misunderstanding. David and I understood the doctor to say that we would have another ultrasound at the next appointment and then we would have a picture to take home. (The ultrasound at six weeks didn’t show enough to hang on the fridge!) He MEANT the next ultrasound at around TWENTY WEEKS!!!! BUMMER!!!!!
We were obviously disappointed and I think he felt badly about it. (At least I hope he did!)
Lesson #1 with new doctor: Do not assume you understand each other. I’m going to be a lot more explicit with my questions and answers from now on.
In the meantime I’ve been trying to keep up with all the shopping recommendations from yesterday’s entry. Wow!!! So much good information! Thank you!
I had to finish proofreading a psychology textbook that has to be in Phoenix tomorrow. I got that done and shipped out in time.
Today our realtor came over to give us an estimate on our house. We are tentatively thinking about trying to buy a bigger house in the next couple of months, but are largely undecided. I’m not sure if I want to move in the summer while pregnant. We’re not sure if we want a bigger mortgage payment. Do you have any idea how hard it is to know what to spend on a house when you are self-employed and have no idea how much you will make from year to year?
On the other hand, if we don’t move, I lose my office to the nursery. This three bedroom house seemed more than adequate when we bought it. David was working a full-time job and I worked part-time from home. We shared an office in one bedroom. Six weeks after we moved in, David’s company went through some major downsizing so he was let go and ever since he has worked at home full-time. We shared an office for awhile, but eventually went to two offices because we work so differently. Neither one of us can see us going back into the same office now because we just have too much work “stuff”.
So we are exploring our options. And praying.
Tomorrow I plan on blogging on something I have discovered is far, far worse than morning sickness. Stay tuned!
