So Steve and I went to our 20 week appointment with Dr. Wirtz on my birthday (this past Thursday) & there was some sort of mix up and they didn't have us scheduled for our ultrasound! I was so upset because Steve had taken the day off for my birthday & to see baby and now they were telling us it wasn't going to happen that day! I was really fighting the tears & I think my Dr.'s receptionist felt bad so she called them again and they said someone had cancelled and they could weasel me in yet that day..... *PHEW!*
We then proceeded to the ultrasound area of the building where we filled out paperwork/family history stuff and then went back. We saw our little baby on the screen while she was measuring everything (wasn't very good at explaining what we were looking at unfortunately, guess she was 2 busy), but she kept asking me all these wierd questions like 'so... you aren't having any cramping you said?' & then 'ok you just stay here and the Dr. will be right in' ...I'm thinking, what do I need a Dr. for?? & then I started to panic thinking it might be a male Dr.! I told Steve if a guy walked in that we were leaving... lol. Well it was a girl thankfully, but the first thing she said after introducing herself was 'have you ever heard of a uterine anomoly?' or something like that... I was just like oh great what now? She proceeded to explain that I have 2 cervix & my 'heart-shaped' uterus that I was informed of back in the day is actually more like 2 halves of a uterus with a wall down the middle! Chalk up another birth defect for Lana! She said my one kidney makes sense because kidneys & reproductive organs grow at the same time for babies.
(side note: it is storming like crazy right now! i'm at the office watching the rain..)
