I never called the doctor. Coward’s way out!
I did call the ultrasound lab to tell them I wasn’t going to get one. They had called and asked me to schedule it, and I thought that was the courteous thing to do.
I’ll see the doctor in about two weeks and I’ll discuss it with her then. I loathe the phone for conversations of note. My cell signal is not great, and I feel like I miss the nuances of communication so much when it’s not face to face. It’s a last resort for me. I bet it won’t be a big deal at all, that she’ll just be all “Oh, sure, that’s fine. Still on for the anatomy scan at 20 weeks, though, right?”
Which is cool.
