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…..today, it feels as though somebody punched me in the arm repeatedly! It is sore!! Ouch! Better sore than sorry 🙂
