On Friday I had a 9:30 appointment for my 6 month follow up to the 6 week after baby/surgery exam. Get that?
JSL went with me and chatted up a storm as we waited. I was finally called back to a room and at about 10:30 the nurse practitioner. I opted to see her since she saw me most of my pregnancy and I really like her. So I was told what to do and left JSL in his stroller while covering myself with the "fun" paper sheet around my waist.
Don’t all of you ladies out there just LOVE that sexy paper sheet?!?!
JSL was not happy being in there and when the NP came in he got very defensive when she was doing my breast exam. Ya know – he does not like it when other people touch his food – LOL!
So she asks to pick him up and put him on my chest. Then she tells me to get ready for my "fun" exam.
***Note to those of you out there – man is it a
bitch pain in the rear to move on the exam table, while wrangling a crying almost 8 month old on your chest, and having the paper sheet under your booty stick. That just did not work. The NP saw me struggle and took JSL for me to move up into position (UGH – nightmares of the last exam and what the doctor said). Then she gave him back and he cried and wiggled the entire time.
Ummmm. . . hello I am the one with well you know what, you know where and he was crying – typical male!
Luckily things are a-ok and I was given information to look at and call back when JSL is weaned and/or my period comes back and I want to investigate other options if my endometriosis acts up again.
Aren’t you glad I shared this with you – LOL! Now if all goes well I will not go back for a year – doing my happy dance.
I hate going to the gynecologist as it is–I can’t even imagine going with an almost 8 month old in tow!
Shawna: LOL – I do too. There is just nothing to like about the stirrup and Pap Smear experience. I am quite content not going back for a year if I can help it. When I scheduled this I was very careful to do it when I would not have to take both of the kids with me.
LOL!! What a trooper, there is no way I could have done that!!
Baby Advice: Thanks, I really did not have an option. I am just glad I did not have to take my 4 year old son with me. Thank goodness when I had to reschedule I was able to do it while he was in school.
