So. Long story short the tech didn't tell me anything not even when I asked. SO even made a comment about how weird it was to not give the mom any info... and then to make matters more annoying I just got a call saying my scan was incomplete and I need to come in for more pictures.

And my massage was mediocre.

And SO is sick and whiney.

Overall annoyed af

Dobs sorry your scan wasn't pleasant I don't know about your hospital/clinic policy but I know at mine techs aren't allowed to give any information about the US. But you'd think she would tell you that if that is the case! hope the next one goes better!

PL as yes 19. That's a bit too many for me but whatever lol

They didn't have a chickenpox vaccine when I was kid. My girls got the vaccine though. DH never had a vaccine and never had chicken pox lol

Aw Dobs, that sucks. I didn't get much info at mine but I'm not really that interested just that the baby is healthy! It's really bad that they didn't even answer when you asked!

Keeps, me and DH were just talking about the labour thing the other night, I'm the same. I mean, it hurts and it's messy and that sucks, but it is all very exciting and such a buzz.

My Ella got the pox at about that age too, it's such a shame for them she still has a scar above her eyebrow. But at least they all got it at once and it's over and done with!

I remember having it as a kid, my brother had it at the same time too, and he was in bed really sick for a week while I was out playing in the garden and almost wishing I could go back to school because other than itching, I felt fine!

They don't vaccinate against it here, or anywhere in Europe that I know of.

Joe has his first wobbly tooth!

I get that certain things she can't tell me but when I ask what are you doing it hey what was that measurement and you don't answer we have a problem. Especially when I asked about how things measured and she said I don't measure that.,. Like yes b* you are supposed to. I wasn't asking her anything diagnostic, just what are you doing type questions which I have a right to know. Still waiting on my gyn to get back to me

She should have just said she wasn't allowed to answer, not answering is so rude. Can you let your Dr know or someone else who works there? In my hospital they tell you as you're going in to save all questions for the Dr because they are not allowed to answer ANYTHING. Like at all. But like I said, they tell you that BEFORE you go in so you don't bother asking question or have them be rude like that. No call for her to be rude. Sounds like maybe she was new? I hope you get someone else next time who will be at least more cordial.

MS yay for wobbly tooth! A lot of people here prefer not to vaccinate for chicken pox either, but some schools require it.

Ahh Keeps sorry your girls aren't well at least they're knocking it all out at once! And I remember your panic with Ella, wasn't there a huge worry of ectopic? And look at her now!

Dobs that's so annoying about the nurse who scanned you. Wtf, bedside manner much? Sorry SO's sick, what's he got?

M&S that makes me feel slightly better. I know ultimately baby really just needs a place to sleep at first, and some clothes. I'm just going crazy with all the stuff piling up in my house.

So...hubs and I are thinking about opening a painting studio/farm goods store out of our basement. Our basement opens up to the outdoors through an unfinished garage which he suggests we turn into an enclosed porch. That would be the main entrance. What do y'all think? I feel like a studio attached to a house isn't weird, but a farm stand might be...but I guess it'd just be weird the first time you shop there...idk.

I didn't know they didn't vaccinate against chicken pox in Europe. That's interesting. Is it because it's more annoying than dangerous?

Dobs I'm so sorry you had a shitty scan and a meh massage I hope your SO feels better and things start looking up.

Shae from what I've read, most other countries are not as vaccine happy as the US is lol we'd vaccinate for the common cold if we could

Gigs I don't think it would be weird, unless people could see into your house, that would weird me out. We saw a lot of shops like that up in the mountains of NC and Ioved them. This one old lady had an antique store in her basement, but you had to walk thru her front door, down a hallway, and down a flight of stairs dh and I said no on that one. His mom went tho lol

I'm craving an iced chai tea latte *drool*

Dobs sorry your u/s experience was bad. As someone who's had many, many ultrasounds, I find some techs super rude, some completely silent, and some incredibly friendly as they narrate everything they are doing. Hopefully you get a better one next time.

Keeps - I'm with you on the labour! I didn't care much for pregnancy itself, not really the first few weeks postpartum, but labour was exciting! And your Ella is so darn cute and has the best outfits, though poor thing with the chicken pox. I think I had them at like age 7. And I, too, remember how distressed you were at your first scan. So weird to think she's a proper little person now!

M&S - I'm with you re: Disney. Never cared for it, esp not the Disney Worlds/Lands etc.

Gigs - not weird, but unique! That may be a good thing.

AFM started looking at houses. Well, houses are way too expensive here, so more like condos and townhouses. It sucks to go to endless viewings with a baby so we've had friends babysit her so far, but I can't be gone more than 2-3 hours because she still won't take a bottle!
