Re: Kids at u/s

I've never thought about it. My u/s have always been in the hospital, with DS I was inpatient)for HG) and my aunt and uncle happened to stop by and visit right when they were taking me down so they came too lol. We planned on bringing our 5 and 6 y/o's to our u/s in a few weeks.

Re: Kids at u/s

Call and ask I took DD1 (she was 3 1/2) to our anatomy scan, 26 wk u/s and 41 wk u/s. It was 3 people actually (DH, DD1 and MIL) and the offices we used had no problems (3 different places). I just asked at the appointment, but you could call ahead so the kids don't get excited for nothing
DH & I happily welcomed Squig March '08 and Hiccup March '12

If there are any typos or grammatical errors I was probably NAK, apologies in advance!

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.
