Things To Do The Night Before a Life-Changing Sonogram
Order gluten-free Pei Wei spicy chicken;
Forget to order extra chicken in your husband’s so selflessly give him some of yours;
Think about taking it back when you’re down to only rice and veggies in two minutes;
Watch Inception, because nothing is more distracting than trying to follow that story plot;
Scan The Bloggess blog even though it has some serious issues with language. Nothing is really not funny about what that woman has her elf on the shelf doing.
Consider going to bed early, but for the first time since pregnancy began, you can’t sleep.
Practice in your mind what you will do if they don’t find a membrane and what you will do if they do find a membrane. It’s a lot like preparing your acceptance speech for the Oscars but also having your gracious loser face on stand-by, just in case.(Winning the Oscar would be equivalent to finding a membrane.)
Realize your husband has fallen asleep with the kids and you can eat all his chicken now, especially since he sent you out for chicken at seven at night and then didn’t even wake up to eat it!
Remember that your husband has been fasting in reverence to prepare for the sonogram tomorrow and feel kind of bad for the previous thought. He hasn’t eaten in 24 hours, so he may not be asleep; he may be unconscious.
Check on husband.
We’ll keep everyone posted when we get some news. Keep us in your prayers tonight. Nighty-night!
