Get Out Of Me, Pee

I just got back from my ultrasound appointment with Mike. At my first doctors appointment, my doctor had a difficult time making out the baby, so she set me up with an Ultrasound technician to get more accurate readings. We figured I wasn't quite as far along as we'd originally thought. Today's appointment confirmed that. Baby Moo's new arrival date is December 26th! Unbelievable. I knew there was a reason I hadn't written it down yet. There he or she was with a strong heart beat. 133 beats per minute. Perfectly normal. I thought it looked a little like a cocoon on the screen. The technician said she thought it looked like a gummy bear. Her description sounded nicer. It is in no way that big, though. It is almost one whole centimeter in diameter. Crazy.
As many know, you must fill your bladder full of water for the appointment. Oooooohhhhhhhh sooooooooo hooooorrrrrrrible! The pushing on the bladder - so awful it made my toes curl (not in a good way). On top of everything else, I couldn't relax because I was so excited and every muscle was tense. I was very happy to see our baby up on the screen with it's fluttering heart beat, but I couldn't wait to get the hell out of there to evacuate the bladder. When I was finally given the go-ahead to use the bathroom, nothing. My body was used to "holding it" that it just wouldn't let it go. Finally, relief. Ridiculously slow relief. I was now able to walk normal and not hunched over on my tip toes. I feel much better...
