Baby and uninformed doctors and nurses

OB app was great yesterday, except for Sean was not able to go because of work. :O( My weight went up, blood pressure was good, fundus height was 15 cm (belly measurement), fetal heart rate 140. Of course, I got to hear the heartbeat again. Never gets old! I freaked out for a second because the first monitor was broken so no sound was coming from it when he placed it on my belly so I thought something was wrong, but it was just the monitor and not baby. Second monitor picked up heartbeat immediately. So wish Sean didn't miss that. I had some complaints with my OB's office. The nurse that called me back asked if I was pregnant! Well, she has seen me many times and she had my chart in her hand! The OB also asked questions about why I have already had 2 ultrasounds and I say because of my history of LEEPs (there is a big green paper, ALL CAPS note on my chart about this that I could read from across the room. I think they should be a little more prepared! And I asked a question and got a smart answer back from the OB. Oh, well. I am just happy all went well with me and baby's health. I feel lots more flutters now that I know are baby. Love it!

Question: Isn't the 1st name Laurel??? Just wondering b/c you never say Laurel and always say Mackenzie. Maybe it should be Mackenzie Laurel instead. ;)
