So this is my monitoring cycle just to ensure all is ok to proceed with our first DIUI next month. Go in this morning and the nurse always pulls up my info and then leaves me to change and wait for the doctor. So I am sitting there and staring me in the face on the ultrasound screen is a pic of another girl's ute with my exact same name and of course she is PG. I mean, it was pretty glaring. I'm like yep, that's a baby right there. Doc comes in and I'm like "ummm so what the heck is that?" and he says "Oops!! That's another patient. And yes, that's a baby." Not even an apology! I love my RE and I know mistakes happen but come on..that was just fab. I'm like yes, let's switch screens..oh, yep, there's that nice empty ute. That's me. Ugh.
