Last night was the huge sundae at Awana sparkies but J and I missed it because we went to see, Dave Thiele, who sang at our wedding perform at the Tonic Room in Chicago. He is so talented and it was a great night, check him out by clicking on his name! His friends packed the place. I got to see my friend Sarah and we were talking and she told me I had to blog about my doctor's appointment on Monday. I told her I wasn't sure I was going to because it is a bit embarrassing. She told me it was too funny not to. So here is for Sarah...please don't laugh to hard :)
I went to my OB for my annual which is so fun to begin with, right? Totally not. Well I made the appointment for 8:30am so that I could drop the 3 older ones off at school and just have Peanut with me. I was thinking she would just sit next to me and no big deal. Well that was not the case. I had an appointment with the new Midwife because the one I really like doesn't work there anymore. We get in the room the nurse weighs me, takes my blood pressure and asks me why I'm here. I really don't understand why the nurses ask you this because the doctor's just come in and ask you the same question, there is no communication between the two so you end up repeating yourself, but I digress. The nurse hands me the lovely paper gown to wear. I put it on and Peanut is running around the room. Once the Midwife came in Peanut wants to sit on my lap. I go to pick her up and the bottom falls off, I quickly grab it and replace it over my lap, with Peanut on top. This baby is very wiggly and she ends up kicking a whole right at my croutch. Then she turns around and rips the top part in half so it is barely hanging on. She tried getting off my lap while I was talking to the Midwife and everything fell off of me it was so embarrassing. This is before the exam even started! She had me lay back for the awarkward breast exam where Peanut did a really good job just sitting on my lap. I thought this is a good sign and hopefully the rest will go smoothly too. Then it was time for the other much more unpleasant part that I tried to get Peanut to lay next to me except she was trying to jump off the bed. I guess in a way it worked out well because I really wasn't paying attention to what was happening to me. I was more focused on my baby not falling. Note to self find a sitter for the baby next year.
