Stupid Sandy

So everyone has heard of this bitch of a storm called Sandy who's making minced meat of the east coast.  Not only has she had me locked away in my house with my parents and my toddler (thanks for that), she also took something else away from me that I was so very much looking forward to.  Announcing this pregnancy.

I was scheduled for my 12 week check up at the obgyn on Monday.  Sunday night I get a phone call saying that the office would be closed Monday and Tuesday because of the hurricane.  Now intellectually I totally get it.  Obviously in a huge storm like this they're going to close the dr's office.  Even if they didn't there would be no way that I would make the drive in in a hurricane.

But here was how Monday was supposed to go before Sandy.  Isabella and Andy were going to come with me to the doctor and we would hear Mrs. Petrillo's heart beating and then we would take Isabella out to dinner and we would tell her that she was going to be a big sister.  It was gonna be a real Danny Tanner - Full House moment.

Then this afternoon, I was scheduled for my NT scan.  Also cancelled.  After getting a peek at the baby, we were going to get ready to announce on facebook on Halloween.

I just don't feel comfortable announcing without knowing that all is well.  But I'm really so ready to announce this pregnancy.  I was so looking forward to a little reassurance that this pregnancy is progressing well and being able to share this excitement.

I know that I'm being kind of pouty and throwing a mini temper tantrum, but it's just really disappointing.  Stupid Sandy.

Don't worry, I would totally pout and throw a temper tantrum, too. Though I didn't have a miscarriage, I did have a bleeding scare with my third (http://alazycrazylife.blogspot.com/2012/03/just-write-i-thought-we-were-losing-her.html), so I can totally understand the (even more) heightened emotions you've got going on. Congrats on your pregnancy and hopefully you don't have to wait too much longer!!

What a bitch! I feel your pain. With Leila, I had my first ultrasound scheduled and then we were going to announce (very similar to you), but our city was hit with a horrific snow storm - like 4 feet of snow in 48 hours - and everything was shut down. So I had to wait like 2 more weeks! It was torchure! I'm so sorry. :-(
