is it Thursday yet?

Ok, just so y’all aren’t wondering where the update is tomorrow, here’s the timeline for how things are going to go. (I suppose management types would call this “setting expectations.”) This will probably be of no interest to anyone except the five or six people who read this site on a regular basis.

9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.: Work. Me likey half-days.

1:00 p.m.: Leave work, drive to doctor’s office, get there way too early, and proceed to have an anxiety attack over the fact that Dave won’t arrive to meet up with me until 1:58 p.m. (I’ve suggested carpooling to work in the morning, which would solve that issue. But given our very different morning routines, I doubt that’ll work out very well.)

2:00 p.m.: Ultrasound appointment. I am totally snagging a can of juice from the office kitchen before I leave work, and downing it five minutes before the ultrasound. Hopefully, the jolt to my blood sugar will ensure that the sprog is moving around, so we can get a good look at his/her naughty bits.

2:30 p.m.: My regular OB checkup. I need to remember to make a list of questions that I want to ask her.

3 – 4 p.m.-ish: Drive home. It probably won’t take that long, but I’m really tired of cooking this week, so I’m going to stop to grab take-out or something for dinner on the way.

Basically, I don’t think that I’ll be home and online (and hence, able to update this here bloggy thing) until around 5:00 p.m. That’s 8:00 for you east coast folks.

Sorry. Believe me, if I could’ve gotten an appointment earlier in the morning, I would’ve been happy to take it. But hopefully, that little bit of advance notice will save you from abusing your browser’s “refresh” button too much.

Or, if you want, you can just go on with your lives and check back on Friday morning. I promise it won’t hurt my feelings (much).

  1. This east coast-er will totally log on to check tomorrow night. Sorry about the delay — that would drive me insane too, but you’re more than halfway there now…

  2. It’s Thursday here!! But it’s still Wednesday where you are. I got all sentimental over on my blog about something completely off topic, so I’m coming here to help distract you until it’s time. I wrote you a haiku. Ready?

    Ultrasound Thursday
    Tomorrow we know! Boy? Girl?
    Must refresh browser.

  3. You know I’ll probably check back Friday morning! And that’s only because your 5:00pm is my 1 in the morning on Friday!

  4. Gah! I checked in this morning (Thursday) in the slim hope that your appointment was reaaaaally early. I’ll check back tonight! 🙂

  5. I’ll be busy on Photoshop this afternoon creating a little digital fig-leaf for the ultrasound pics.
