A driveby conversation

Him: What are you doing?

Me: Watching birth videos on YouTube.

Him: Whyyyyyy?  Wanna practice?

Me: Nope.  Definitely not.  Watching from behind my hand.

Him: Why?

Me: I’m horrified.  And mesmerized.

Him: Whoa, is she standing up?

Me: Totally.  Here, watch.


Him (shrugging shoulders): Makes sense.  You know, gravity and all that.

Me (still hiding behind my hand): Uhhhhhh.

Him: Also, she’s a bad*ass.  Did you see how she stayed standing after giving birth?  Awesome.

(walks away)

Me (shouting at him as he walks into the other room): Yea, but would you get in the birth tub with someone who’s, you know, birthing?

Him: Why wouldn’t I?


Guess I’m the squeamish one.

But I’m working on it.  I went to my yearly girly-bits appointment yesterday (and got my hormonal implant removed – not because we’re TTC, but because I just can’t handle the low libido and hormonal nausea anymore) and as I sat in the (yucky*) clinical exam room, thought, “Not me.  Not here.”

*I’m not judging.  Not all exam rooms are yucky, but this one totally was.  C’mon, people, you’re an OB/ GYN/ Peds office.  Dirty carpet is not okay in a peds office.
