I understand that everyone is human and makes mistakes. But telling your pregnancy obsessed, high-risk patient she'll be finding out the gender of her baby and have an extensive ultra-sound at her next appointment and then not doing it is one mistake that is not acceptable! That's exactly what happened today. Ryan skipped important school lectures so we could go to the appointment that we've been counting down to all month only to wait an hour to have a five minute appointment listening to the heartbeat. Although I am ecstatic that there is still a heartbeat, I am heart broken that we didn't have the appointment I was promised.
My doctor apologized for "misleading us to think this was that appointment because it is most definitely the next appointment at 20 weeks." With Ryan as my witness, she did not mislead, she misspoke. I even questioned her about it afterward because 17 weeks seemed too early to find out the gender, but she reassured me it was today's appointment.
So it looks like I have another month of waiting before I get a picture and a gender.
