During my pregnancy with Holden, I searched HIGH AND LOW for a 4d Ultrasound studio to go to to get not only a gender ultrasound done (before 20 weeks, such a long time to wait), but to get a good look at my growing parasite.
The only one I could find is across a bridge, about 45 minutes away. More in traffic, and there is almost always traffic.
Still, compared to places in other states, the prices are cheap- and you get an assload of pictures to take home.
Due to the crap-ass appointment I got stuck with this time around that I really don’t even want to go to (genetic scan.. pointless genetic scan now that I know more about the condition and one would get it), at a place that treats patients like shit, I decided to make an appointment at the same 4D studio for an early gender determination. 5:30pm on a Wednesday, best I could get.
It’s far for me to drive with Holden, and for ALL of my family that lives over here to go to, but being that I thought they were the only place around- it’s all I could do.
While shopping at the mall today, I ventured into Motherhood Maternity. Something I never do, since their clothes are overpriced and usually don’t fit me.. but I came across a tank top I LOVED and had to buy, so I did.
Girl behind the counter happened to be due on the 18th- just 10 days behind me, and handed me a card for a 4d studio on THIS side of the water, and began to rave about it.
Once we got home I checked out the website.. and while I like the studio I went to with Holden- this one is cheaper, and actually seems better (and not just because it’s closer).
So what to do? Would this place even have a better appointment date/time at such short notice?
If they do, do I take it?
It would be more convenient for Holden and I, and more convenient for the family that lives over here- but what about the people closer to the original studio i’d planned to go to? I doubt ANY of them would drive over here. Sad, but true.
And if I kept my appointment on the other side of the water.. would those friends/family even go? A lot of them bailed out on the appointment I had to take a peek at Holden, who’s to say they wouldn’t do the same this time around- making the appointment.. not quite a waste, but a pointless drive when there’s a studio right down the road.
I hate decisions like this. No matter which I decide, there’s going to be people who aren’t able to go. So should I just pick the appointment that best suits me?
Actually, I hate decisions in general. Never good at making them. Make it for me!
Best compliment you can give me is to tell me you hope your future kids turn out like mine. I mean, you're lying, but it's a nice compliment
