Brief Fetus Update

I just had my most recent OB checkup. I am 33 weeks and 1 day. This one was with Pollyanna the nurse. I learned two things:

1) Whilst getting my second rhogram shot I learned that Pollyanna sucks at shots. If there is a next time I will insist on shooting up myself, since I am much better at shots. She is also a little muddled about the whole positive/negative blood type thing, though maybe that slip was just because it was late in the afternoon.

2) Pollyanna also sucks at using the portable ultrasound machine, and sadly I am not so good at self-administering ultrasound, so we have no additional data on the gender. We did confirm that I am not imagining it, that is a head right under the left side of my ribcage, i.e. the fetus is still breech.
