You know what's sad?

I have my big ultrasound appt tomorrow. I have called 3 people, emailed one person(waiting to hear back) and ruled out one person who could have helped (neighbor, but she is sick) and no one can baby sit our ds while my dh and I go to my appt. I have one other friend whom I could call but she just had her 4th baby 3 weeks ago so I ruled her out. Not that I am upset by that one at all. I have always been available to babysit when people need me but when I need help, no one can. Do I not have a life? If I had family in town, this wouldn't be a problem. My folks live 1 1/2 hours from here and my inlaws live 4 hours. I had to take our ds with me to one of m appts cause I couldn't find someone. It's not easy to take a very busy kid to one of those appt.

I am sad that I might have to cancel the appt. I am not going to rely on my dh to come home to be with our ds because I want him to go to the appt with me.
I am so bummed by all this

Just take him with you! My DH and I almost never can find a sitter, so we took our 2 yr old with us to our ultrasound. We all went back together and DH held DD. It was no big deal. If your DS gets fussy your DH can take him out.

It also might make the idea of "baby in mommy's belly" seem more real if he can see the u/s!

I don't mind that my dh hasn't been to any of my appts this pregnancy, I just want him to come to this one. It is pretty important to me.

My ds is a very busy kid. He wouldn't last 2 seconds in the room with us.
