It's okay though because my next pregnancy when I took my kids to the u/s my son knocked the same tech's water over by accident and it got all over her cell phone
I love that your DS happened to do that!

Nothing is hidden at all. Dh goes down with me everyone and nothing is said about it.
Yeah. I seriously HATE the u/s dept at the hospital. Which is really strange, because I have had great experiences everywhere else in the hospital I've dealt with over the years - lab, emerg, peds, mat. Just u/s is so cold and rude.

And that's the thing - maybe under normal circumstances their rules would be fine, but I need someone who understands that this ISN'T normal circumstances. I NEED to see this baby, just for a few minutes. Then they can do whatever they need to.
With Elli's first u/s, I laid there for over 1.5 hours. Then walked out having seen her face and heart beat - I realize now why the tech only showed me for a few seconds, never lingering anywhere - wouldn't want me to actually see that Elli wasn't moving. Better to leave me with "Oh, what a busy little bee!" and a smile

Seriously. Anxiety. HUGE.
