Ok, ladies. Let’s talk gyno visits. I had that lovely annual appointment today. And let me tell you, it is soooo much less fun than going when you’re pregnant! But a girl does what she must.
First of all, the waiting room was like a daycare center. Kids of all ages running around. I’m thinking some of those ladies should be talking to their doc about birth control! And the last thing I would do is take my toddler with me to any kind of appointment. I’m always looking for any excuse to get out of the house without kids. Even the gynecologist.
Secondly, anyone else slightly obsessed with burying their bra and undies under their clothes when they undress? I just feel weird having my unders exposed for all to see. But then I feel equally as weird about the trouble I go to to hide them. I wonder if my doctor noticed. Maybe she was wondering if I even wore a bra and underwear. Hmmmm…
And for some reason, my doctor’s office has decided to do away with gowns. Instead they gave me a “mini skirt” to wear over my boobs and a yard of fabric to put over my lap. Are hospital gowns really that expensive? I just felt very vulnerable sitting there with a couple of fabric scraps covering my lady parts waiting and wishing I had something to read.
On a positive note, I did dodge the mammogram bullet for at least another year. Yes, I’m at the age for a baseline. But I’m not about to remind my doctor of this little tidbit.
