So today's u/s was scheduled with a different OB than my own since mine is out of town right now. Let me tell you he was just awful!!!! He did not introduce himself to me. He asked if I had a transvaginal u/s before and I said yes. He said well slide down then. He said well its only 6 weeks its really too soon to measure anything. Then he did say it was good that we could see the heartbeat flickering, however he didnt even tell me how many bpms. Then he printed a picture for my chart and wasnt going to give me one. I semi- threw a fit and insisted he do it again so I could get a picture. It was so unpleasant. Then he and his nurse left me and the hubby in the room. We didnt know what to do so we sat there and then decided to go to the checkout desk. We scheduled another u/s for 2 weeks from now and then left. Well I was atleast relieved that our little beans heart was beating. Then I get a phone call from my actual nurse who works with my OB (the one out of town). She tells me that I am a carrier of the cystic fibrosis gene. Now my hubby had to get bloodwork done =( If he is a carrier we are going to be devastated. I feel a little better the more I read about it but I just can't believe I never even knew I was a carrier. Let alone the fact that I already have 2 perfect kids. She said because this is my hubby's first kid we had to get him tested. There is a 1 in 29 chance that he has it. It doesnt seem like a very high chance but then again, I have it so who knows... I am so scared right now for our baby =( We won't find out for a week what Jason's test results are so now just the waiting game. My next ultrasound is August 5th. Not feeling so excited right now...

How am I not seeing your journals and pictures? I feel like i'm way behind!

Sorry to hear about your crappola called a doctor. Glad that you threw a mini fit so atleast you could get a pic. What a jerk this guy sounded like! The good news is despite everything else was that there was a heartbeat. Hooray!!!!  Please dont stress abou the cycstic fibrosis. The chances of Jason being a carrier is very slim. Keep your head up, it will all work out :)
