Pancake Consolation Prize

I have been a nervous wreck for several days now and I have been looking forward to my doctor visit with this new OB. My appointment was this morning at 10:45 and I get there, wait, fill out paper work, wait some more all the while my stomach is churning.

"Monica, Dr. I had to leave so we're going to have to reschedule for next Friday at 8:15."

Thanks a lot, people. Now I will have nervous stomach for another 10 days. I know it's not her fault. She was there when I arrived but received an emergency phone call concerning her father and him having to undergo emergency open heart surgery so she snuck out the back door. Eeek! I'll cut her some slack, but I hate to be inconvenienced. I could have slept in this morning. I am SO NOT A MORNING PERSON! So getting there that early will be a chore. Since I often don't go to bed until the wee hours if the night, maybe I'll just stay up until my appointment. Maybe not, I like sleep too much.

Instead Mr. H and I went to I.hop for their new carrot cake pancakes. You all know how I feel about carrot cake. You better believe they were good. And they were smothered in cream cheese frosting- YUM! I guess that makes up for my missed appointment.

Until next week...

Monica, this is so irritating. I hate when things like this happen--especially when you've been worrying and waiting for the appt.

I'm going on Friday, for my follow up with the high risk doctor. I might be joining you in those stay up late sessions. I've got the churning stomach too!

Damn!!! Well I guess you'll have to wait until Friday, but that does suck. That happened to me when I was meeting Dr. Thompson for the first time, only she was going to deliver someone's baby. Someone's perfect baby I bet. But at least your doc. had a better excuse. Hey, does he/she have a website? Girl, I'm so excited to hear how it goes so you better post first thing when you get back. MKAY? Yeah, you better. Hey, is our support group meeting this month? Have you talked to Father A. about it? Also, do you know when Evan's due date is? Kinda want to go to the cemetery or at least e-mail Jenna.

Oh no!! I am so sorry, Monica! I would have been really upset too. I am glad you found out why it was canceled though and that it was valid. (though, obviously, I hope her dad is okay.) I think it would have been so much worse if they had just left you hanging.

Good luck making it through the next ten days! Maybe more delicious food will help nervous stomach? :)

Meg- You can stay up late writing your blog and I can stayup late reading it, kinda like last night :) Good look at your appointment Friday.

Monica- The support group is meeting on the 15th, except we won't be there since our PAL group is on Thursday nights from 6:30-8.
This new doc does not have a website which I find frustrating, but then if she did more people would know about her making my life more complex, so I'm kinf of glad she doesn't. I will blog right away to let you know how it goes next week. Evan's EDD is Monday, the 26th. I have her addressif you want it. Also, I have something for Andy, so when are you going to let me come over?

Ms. G- Sadly the last thing I need is more good food to comfort me. I hope they get their shit together so I don't have calm my stomach with pancakes smothered in frosting again. I didn't gain any weight with either pregnancies, I gained it all afterward and it's not going anywhere. I guess that's what depression does to you.

Oh Monica, I'm sorry you didn't get to see your new dr. I came to your blog to find out how it went.

The waiting is horrible isn't it?

Carrot cake pancakes sound yummy.

That stinks, stinks, stinks about your appointment. I'm so sorry. But hopefully this'll make you feel better (at least make you laugh)...

p.s. I stumbled across this from an ad I saw in a magazine.

Mmmmmm, I've been dreaming about those pancakes!

I'm sorry your appointment got rescheduled. That sucks. I'm just as anxious as you are to hear about them : )
