My Trip to the Doctor

I went to the doctor and had my yearly “woman” exam – lol. It was the first time ever with a male doctor and was a lot less scary than I thought it would be. I used midwives with 2 of my boys (in hospitals with epidurals) and a doctor with my second son (again in a hospital with the epidural). When I went to schedule my appointment, the only doctor available was a male (the females were booked out 2 or 3 months out). So, I figured…what the heck…may as well give it a try! I think I must have asked at 10 women if they saw male doctors and what they thought.

I asked about this doctor in particular as well and heard nothing but good things about him. Not only is he an OB/GYN, he’s also a family doctor! He was super nice – great bedside manner (not rude or undermining at all). He answered all of my questions without a hint of annoyance or sarcasm. Since I’m 30 and don’t remember the last time I had a Tetanus shot, they gave me one. The shot didn’t hurt. However…, it feels as though somebody punched me in the arm repeatedly! It is sore!! Ouch! Better sore than sorry ๐Ÿ™‚
